:: Baby Quilt #2 - Houndstooth


So now that you know about the baby girl quilt I made, it's time to talk baby boy quilt.   Before Blaize was born, we hardly dared to hope it might be a boy.  And even though NOT finding out what we were having was hard... Oh, it is so incredible at the end!


And after seeing this pattern, I knew I wanted to make a houndstooth baby quilt.


The backing fabric was a vintage print of Goldilocks and the 3 bears.  But it was really the bears that won my heart.  Especially "mummy bear".

 
 
I machine quilted it using my walking foot, in a simple grid pattern.  Not too much to make it stiff, but enough to give it texture.
 
 
Baby Blaize sleeps under it every night, and I love seeing that houndstooth peek out of his crib at me every time I walk in the room..  Almost as much as I love seeing his little face peek out above it.  =)

  1. That houndstooth quilt is so classy and modern and vintage at the same time. I love it, especially in the subtle light grey blue. And the simple stitching complements it so well. Gorgeous :)
