An Army Baby

We have 5 grandsons and 13 great-nephews, and 2 granddaughters and 6 great-nieces. Blue is my favorite color so I enjoy making baby boy quilts but it is always fun to sew PINK!

We are expecting a great-great-niece in November, the daughter of our great-nephew and his wife.
We found the fabric in West Des Moines and I designed this little quilt. It's about 45" X 45".
Ray picked out the main fabric with the butterflies and we found fabrics to coordinate. Then I just played with the fabrics/colors until this resulted.
Can you believe the theme for the baby's room is pink with butterflies!?! We really got lucky this time! Here is the back - a very soft flannel.
I just finished the machine quilting and put the binding on this week. The baby shower was a week ago but we weren't able to attend. So I'll put this in the mail soon - it's on its way to Fort Campbell.


  1. Very cute! I need to get one quilted and in the mail too for a great nephew. :) blessings, marlene

  2. That is just adorable!! I love the setting! I think I'll borrow that for my next quilt ... I've got 5" square precuts coming in kids prints. I'm going to make a quilt for the grands and wanted some kind of sashing to tie together the various prints and give it a "polished" look.

  3. Your paisley quilting is amazing! She is gonna love it! It's nicve you trust your husband to pick out the fabric! I can't do that with mine. For one, our tastes are to different, and for 2, he is color blind, which might result in a funky quilt!
