Baby Drew's Quilt

I put the last stitch on this quilt the morning I left my sister's house after a week-long visit to see my new nephew, Drew, at the end of September.

I had it all done and quilted when I left for her house, I just had to trim it, make the binding, and bind it while I was there.

The fabric is an older line by Moda called Meadow Friends, backed and bound with two different Denyse Schmidt fabrics.  

I was happy to be able to use some of the yellow Denyse Schmidt fabric in the quilt top, too, because it was fabric left over from my other new nephew's quilt that I made earlier in the year (which I have yet to post about!)  I was happy to be able to have a little of the same fabric in both boys quilts.  Kindof ties them together in my mind.

Once it was done, we put the quilt straight to work during a photo shoot of Drew.  I personally think it did a wonderful job showing off my adorable nephew!



  1. Cute quilt! It looks like your nephew approves :)

  2. What size triangles did you use for the quilt? I have a stack of meadow friends fat quarters that I've been sitting on till I figure out a quilt design I liked. And I really like yours the best! It's nice big triangles to showcase the different sized busy prints while still being interesting. I had thought of doing big size charm squares, but I just made the boys quilt in that style and wanted to do something different. And the oversize triangles are such a great idea! Wonderful job!


Your comments brighten my day!
