My fourth quilt ever turned out to be a Texas baby quilt for my former coworker who had a baby girl in May. I bought the pattern before the baby was born but didn’t manage to get it started until three months after the baby was born. Oops.
Not being a huge fan of pastel baby blankets, I thought I’d do a red, white, and blue themed baby quilt for the baby Texan. I went to Joann’s and spent a couple of hours searching for fabric that had muted reds and blues in it. I already had a pattern picked out, an HST heavy quilt from Must Love Quilts called Texas Forever. I modified the shape a little bit and made it smaller and used a darker gray fabric as the neutral fabric.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. I may have messed up on the card and not clipping all the strings but that’s another story.
