A pretty baby quilt

One of my nieces has just had a baby so I made a pretty baby quilt for the baby. 

I used the "June" pattern from Amanda Jean Nyberg's book, "No Scrap Left Behind". I've had the book for a few years and have always wanted to try that pattern.  It felt good to be able to make if from fabrics I had on hand. 

I used some of the Tula Pink pastel solids I had left over from when I made this quilt for my mother in law - the baby's great grand mother. So there's a nice connection there. 

As it's a baby quilt and I want it to be used, I had it machine quilted at Busy Bee Quilt Shop.  

I even found a nice backing for it in my stash.

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Wonderful quick finish quilts, great to use a bit of the 'resource center'!

What a sweet quilt! And I love the one you made for the baby’s great grandmother too. Tula Pink is a wonderful fabric line.

Cute baby quilt - and super cool to have a connection with Grandmas quilt!

What a pretty baby quilt. Looks like it's for a girl, right? My niece is having a baby in June, but we won't know the gender until she/he arrives. So I'm going with novelty prints to make a 42" X 58" scrappy baby quilt with lots of "objects" to find in the prints. Hopefully it will continue to be a fun quilt to use when the baby is bigger. It's fun to have a reason to work with cute, child-like prints, isn't it?
