Let me introduce you to one of my recent finishes, the Sunshine Baby Quilt.
This was one of those quilts that had been languishing in as a quilt top for YEARS. And I mean, possibly eight years. (And it was even basted!) You see, back when all the kids were back in public school (we homeschooled for a number of years), I decided that I would contribute financially by opening an Etsy shop and stocking it with baby quilts, burp cloths, bibs, and other handmade items.
Well, it only took me timing myself making a couple of baby quilts to realize that that was not a viable financial option. For people who just want to recoup their fabric expenses, then yes, selling finished quilts can work–but it does not produce a livable wage.
But I digress–back to this adorable quilt!
The fabric is the Sweetwater Sunkissed line, and based on the response I got when I posted this quilt on Instagram, it just may be people’s favorite baby quilt fabric ever.
It’s a simple coin quilt–I just cut charm squares in half and then sewed them together into four columns of 14. Totally beginner friendly. The sashing and borders are 3 1/2″. And who doesn’t love a gingham binding?
I’m looking forward to sending this off to it’s forever home with a baby girl who is not yet born 🙂 I’ve got a little leftover fabric to round out the package with some matching burp cloths.
If you need a fast finish, this was fun to make and is so easily scalable to a larger throw or even bed size quilt. And Fat Quarter Shop still has awesome baby fabric.
