Let's Make Baby Quilts! {week 20}

I find that it helps to keep some fabric set aside for the baby quilts. The plan is that, when I have the time for one of my piecing and quilting binges, I'll have something right there to work on.... I'll let you know if it works when I finally do find the time to do another little baby quilt binge.

These beachy prints came in a scrap bag from my mom, and I added some blues from my own stash.  I'm also planning to mix in some sandy colors and see what I can come up with.

I'm loving this lion print that Jo sent me.  There's enough to back a NICU quilt and it's so bright and cheerful that instead of cutting it up into little squares, I think I'm going to make a yellow and blue top to go with it. Either that, or try to blow up and applique one of the lions the way I did the mouse applique on this quilt.

And these are pieced panels of strips from one of the thrift store bags. They're shirts, or fabric left over from sewing shirts. I plan to add sashing and do some kind of a Chinese Coins quilt. There's probably enough for a large lap quilt, so I'll have to decide if I want to use it for a big people quilt or a baby quilt.

Let's Make Baby Quilts Linky Party Rules:

Link directly to your post or specific Flickr photo. Your post can be about a baby quilt that's finished, or in progress, or you can be writing about what you have planned, but it's got to be about baby quilts. While we're still gathering steam, you're welcome to link to baby quilt posts that aren't brand new, but please don't submit the same post or picture more than once. I'd love it if you linked back to my site, either with a text link or the Let's Make Baby Quilts! button.
