New Quilt For A New Baby

Early last week I got a new niece.  She's totally adorable by the way.  I wanted to make her something so I decided on a light weight patchwork baby blanket.  Similar to the ones I made my own kids when they were babies.  I left out the batting and made the back flannel.  It's a cozy blanket for the warmer months without the bulk of a regular quilt.  Although I adore quilting I find most traditional quilting patterns too tedious.  I appreciate when others do them, but I just don't have the patience for them.  I prefer very basic patchwork and large motifs.  This large motif pattern is FIERCE!  I adore it and I will definitely use it again.

Greenleaf loved holding her new cousin.
