Oh my crayons!

Friends of ours have just welcome a second baby boy to their family. My plan was to grab one of the quilts from the shop while at Mom’s and send it off to them. But since I didn’t make it there, I decided to throw together a top just for him.

I’d made a quilt for his big brother back in 2017. In fact, it was one of my first! Boy have I come a long way since then!

Since I wanted to get it done in time to take to Mom’s THIS weekend**, it had to be something quick and easy.

A charm pack and the Oh My Stars pattern to the rescue!

You’ve seen my make this one so many times before. I can throw one together in just a couple hours if I’m motivated.

This one used a charm pack called Colourful Friends, by Crayola.

I’d recently gotten a chunk of crayon fabric in a grab bag, so I knew it would be just perfect for the border

I’ll do plan black binding to balance of the inner black border, and I’ve got a nice chunk of fun animal fabric for the back.

** Sadly, I won’t be quilting it this weekend as planned. Dave wants to look a used car he’s thinking about buying, and he wants my opinion (and help with logistics if he does get it)… so I’m postponing my weekend with Mom once again! It’s a good thing it takes a while for babies to outgrow quilts!

    I love it! Those little baby quilts really come in handy. I’ve used the heck out of the ones I made for my Grands every time I baby sit them.
