A colleague had a lovely baby girl named Winslow recently and I made her a baby quilt to celebrate. I pulled out pink and purple fabrics from my stash and set to work. I chose a purple flannel for the backing that would be soft and cozy for the new little bundle of joy. For the front, I combined a pink, plaid flannel with eight pink cotton prints. I chose a simple checkerboard design with the plaid flannel dispersed throughout.
As with all my baby quilts, I machine bound the edges. I always feel this is more secure and up to the task of many washes and tougher use. I used a decorative leaf stitch with variegated pink thread.

Fabrics/Notions: Pink plaid and purple marbled flannel from Jo-ann’s, assorted pink quilting cottons, Aurifil pink variegated thread for binding.
