Custom Baby Quilts- Stacked Squares

  I was very excited to be contacted through Etsy from a local who wanted some custom quilts made.  She had seven different cotton fabrics she used as napkins at her wedding.  She wanted me to make two baby quilts out of the fabric.  It was a nice idea because it was sort of a memory quilt as well.

  She was interested in a pattern I recently did with my moda boho fabric, stacked squares.  I decided to do one in that pattern and one a little different so they wouldn't be exactly the same.  It was quite  bit of piecing just to get long enough strips but eventually it all worked out.  Each quilt turned out to be very generous sizes around 42" x 58". 

  When I went to the fabric store I was very happy to find the perfect fabric for backing.  The fabric that she gave me was bought over a year ago so finding matching fabric was quite exciting. 

  As for top stitching I found out she was having a boy so that cuts out any flowery patterns.  I chose very neutral patterns.  One leaf with swirls and a simple meandering pattern. 

  So here they are it's amazing what you can do with some napkins.  I am very happy with them and I hope she enjoys them too.
