Meet Levi!

Most of my baby quilts start with the question "What if?"

This time, I was wondering what would happen if I took that pieced border that I'm loving so much from Jo's Chocolate covered Cherries pattern and made a two color baby quilt. I used 2 1/2" cut squares instead of the 2" squares the pattern calls for and left out the alternate blocks.

I couldn't be happier with the results!

The solid blue is from a sheet that we bought for Teenage Daughter's Halloween costume after she'd stolen one sheet from my stash and decided that one was too purply. This one was almost the right shade....but not as good as another stash sheet that I'd set aside to back her brother's quilt.  The backing is one of the lovely baby prints that Mary Ellen sent me earlier this year.

Now that's cute!!! My sister is having a girl in April so I am planning on several quilts for her. This would also be cute in pink or purple. :)

BTW...I use sheets all of the time for backings.

I love it! I have not attempted to learn to quilt yet, but I am inspired when I see quilts like this one!
