Urban Birthday Baby Quilt

If anyone knows  me they know I'm really bad at planning ahead...and am usually caught off guard when things come up, like a baby shower tonight and a quilt to put together today!  Good thing I have all the right tools to handle a situation like this!

This baby boy quilt is for my Sister-n-law.


I used the Pattern Urban Birthday and pretty much cut it in half.   I picked this pattern because it is very easy and fast to put it together!


I was able to work on it at the Quilt Shop today for their open sew day.  I met a new friend Annie...she's also doing up the Urban Birthday pattern for her son's Birthday.  I met Annie through my patterns...how cool is that and I have a feeling we are going to be really good sewing buddies!


  I added a small border to the top and bottom, used gray flannel for the back and warm and white for the batting.


I love...love this quilting pattern because it works so well with either boy or girl baby quilts...without looking baby cutesy.  Now off to make some food for the baby shower.

There is so much to love about this quilt! I love the fabrics, the gray flannel back, the little border, the colors, and the quilting design. Wow.

I'm always surprised by baby arrivals, too, even if I have 9 months advance warning! haha!

Love this one, and I love your homemade panto. It worked wonderfully on this. This pattern is on my soon to buy list.

Beautiful! I love how the quilting echoes the pattern. Do you mark out your quilting lines or freehand it?
