Little Monsters Baby Boy Quilts

When the fabric store gives you adorable flannel, you must make a baby quilt or two.  My local Jo-ann’s store closed recently and due to a few weekends of an epic liquidation sale, I was able to pick up quite a few adorable flannel prints that were perfect for baby quilts.  Since everyone and their sister seem to be having babies these days, it’s always good to have a completed baby quilt on hand for the next impromptu baby shower.

One of my recent finds was an adorable flannel with a colorful monsters pattern on a black background.  I used solid blue and red to piece a simple back to complement the monster flannel.  I had enough flannel for two small baby quilts so the each have the same back but I practiced a two different binding techniques with packaged satin binding and regular packaged binding.

These quilts were quick and easy to make since the print flannel was used entirely for one side.  I recommend some of the great patterned flannels at your local fabric store for the next baby shower you are invited to.
