And yet another baby...

As I said earlier, it's been raining babies around  here. One of our former students came back to us after college and she has taught for us for a couple of years now. It's always such fun when they come home.
This one is Susie and she had baby Quinten back in July. I have wanted to do one of the zigzag quilts and I found this pattern on Pinterest from the Bee Square Blog .

I like the idea that this is made with strips. I chose bright boyish novelty prints and tone on tones to alternate. Since this ends up with bias edges, I recommend staystitching the edge before trying to baste it for quilting. It will keep it from stretching out of whack.

I've had this fun Hawaiian shirt and swim trunk print for a long time with no plan for it. I just thought it complimented all the bright colors. The yellow and white Hawaiian print fabric came from the thrift store. It had been hemmed as a tablecloth.

What a smart idea to make a quilt with the Hawaian shorts and shirts.

Love it.
