A baby quilt

Not for my own baby, though. A friend commissioned me to make one for her to give as a gift to a little boy. I based the design off a quilt that was given to Edmund and found the cute nautical fabrics at Jo-Ann Fabrics.

Baby quilt

This was really the first quilt I've ever made, start to finish, and it gave me a good excuse to try out my new walking foot.


  1. It is beautiful and I am SO impressed that it is your first quilt! It looks completely perfect!

  2. Hi Laura, welcome back!

    I love the quilt, especially the way that vibrant border is replicated in the star.

    And as for your first post - Edmund is adorable!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the border colors. :)


  4. It's so cute! I love the "Happy Star" (what my voice teacher- who is an amazing quilter- calls that quilt block).

    It's nice to have you back online! Your blogging was missed. :)
