I made a baby quilt and actually finished it in time for the shower! I started it yesterday and finished it today. I even had time to sew one of the quilt blocks to a tote bag. I love to give my baby quilt in a matching bag. I simply take a purchased tote bag and sew one of the extra blocks onto the outside.
The tote makes for a nice place to store the quilt and the new mom can take it anywhere.
I modified the pattern from a 9-patch and friendship star pattern that was in the book "Quilting Along with Emilie Richards". I copied the soft colors and layout of the quilt in the book. Click here to see the book I used.
