I made a quilt for one of my grand-nephews.
Here is his baby quilt.
I try to make a flannel baby quilt, then a regular cotton big-kid quilt for kids in my family. This way, when they move from a crib to a big bed, they have a quilt that will fit.
This time, I went with a string quilt. I made 4.5" HSTs with strings and a neutral background. I arranged them in a layout I saw HERE.
Here is my result.
|String Squares (76" x 94")|
|String Squares (binding and border detail)|
He likes a series of books about The Little Blue Truck. I didn't find licensed fabric for the character, but I did find blue trucks for the backing.

Lots and lots of scraps in this one--I hope he likes it!
Happy Quilting! 😸
