Scrappy Baby Quilt

A few years ago I came across a quilt pattern that I tucked away to make for myself…one day.  It’s from a book called “Sunday Morning Quilts”.  This book is full of great quilt ideas that use up little scraps you may have lying around just begging to become a masterpiece. This pattern is the “ticker tape quilt” from the book.

Anyhow…when my newest nephew was expected to arrive this spring…I decided to make it for him.

Let me tell you – it’s a good thing I ended up making this one for someone other than myself because it truly was a labor of love.  Although the pattern didn’t involve traditional “quilting” it was very tedious.  Some nights I would work for a few hours and it would seem as though I accomplished nothing.  BUT…all of a sudden it started coming together and boy…did it turn out great.

What’s really nice is that I was able to incorporate a few scraps that I had used two years ago when I made a quilt for this nephew’s older brother’s quilt.  Mom liked that too.

When the quilt was finished I was so glad that I stuck it out.  I love the scrappy & random feel of this quilt as well as the happy colors that dot it.  It turned out lovely.

AND…for any quilters/sewers out there…I accurately followed THIS tutorial on machine binding by Red Pepper Quilts.  This tutorial is amazing and worked out perfectly – so easy!  Attaching binding has always been difficult for me.  I think this is the method I am going to stick with from now on.
