Finished Baby Quilt

So pleased to have finished this traditional patchwork quilt, made for a grandchild expected in the fall.

Measuring 40" x 40", this baby quilt is made of scraps,
mostly prints, with a few hand-dyes.

It has a narrow bias binding, and was quilted using a "continuous curves" design
that requires no marking.
Thank you, Lauma, for providing the perfect backing fabric! Very retro.

Here's a photo of a similar quilt, made for the Big Sister a couple of years ago:

And here's another baby quilt I made for a great-niece, using a similar approach and a brighter palette:

There are undoubtedly easier ways to make a baby quilt, but I am attracted to the traditional, timeless quality of this method.
