Baby Girl Quilt

Over a year ago, I made these blocks and ended up not using them.    
I've always loved the fabrics and color scheme and when I found out my friend Alicia was having a baby girl, I thought these blocks would make a cute baby girl quilt.


I took the basic oval shape, made from my Quick Curve Ruler and put them together by alternating the direction of each block.


I used my homemade pattern for my quilting design. 


I used 2 flannels pieced together for the back...I love how soft it makes it for a baby quilt and I used one layer of warm and white for the batting.



...and I was really excited when I found a half yard of this Amy Butler fabric in my stash for the binding I had used in the quilt.



...so what a great idea for a baby quilt, right?  So....if you've bought the Quick Curve Ruler and need an idea for a quilt, all you do is make your basic oval block (directions in the free runner pattern) and then alternate them, add a small binding and you now have an original baby quilt!
