New Baby Quilt

 I finally made it over to my sister’s to deliver this for her newest grandson. A simple, yet satisfying one patch. 

 I didn’t know he was going to be a boy until he was born, but I think this one fits the bill for a little man. Don’t you just love that center panel? Wouldn’t every child want a ride in these cars? 

 And, of course my signature cowboy fabric on the back. This fabric is at least 15 years old but it never goes out of style (for me). 

 And speaking of old… I picked this gem up the last time I was at Cyndi’s (Busy Thimble). She had integrated some marvelous “oldies but goodies” from her half yard cuts in the “larder”. I used the last piece of this years ago so it was nice to have it back in the fold (no pun intended). 

She also passed these to me (2" x 6" strips) while I was there. We like to trade strips whenever we are cutting quantities of larger strips. I was thrilled that they fit perfectly in this Betsy Chutchian “Frivols” tin. Now I can make something expressly with these little beauties. 

 Hope your day is filled with fun scraps!


  1. The center panel/picture really makes this quilt shine, Wendy. And the backing is perfect. (How much more do you have?)

    1. Nann, I have a little less than a yard, but I would be happy to send you half. I don't think I have your address.

  2. Wendy, this quilt is just as sweet as can be! I can remember the little pedaled cars from my childhood, and doesn't that panel look like it would be right at home in a Dick and Jane reader? Love the cowboy fabric too. Some things just never go out of style!

  3. adorable little boy quilt...i'm making my list for cyndi's now...LOL

  4. The baby quilt is oh, so cute. I did have a peddle car too. My grandkids though, have an electric jeep. LOL.

  5. Cutest baby quilt! I agree about cowboy backing- always in style!!

  6. That's a great pic to add to the baby quilt......

  7. What a wonderful baby quilt! Wow, lucky baby!
    Don't you love coming across some of those "oldies, but goodies"? They are fun surprises.
    I look forward to seeing what you create from those strips you swapped with Cyndi. Visiting the two of you last year is such a fond memory!

  8. Great baby quilt - adorable center panel! I'm happy to see I'm not the only one with an appreciation for the good ol' stuff!

  9. Love that baby quilt with the center panel and cowboy backing. Growing up, my neighbor had a bright red pedal car that I always wanted to 'drive" but there were times when he didn't let me! That's a nice oldie but goodie to add to your stash. It's wonderful that you and Cyndi swap strips :)

  10. That's a fun baby quilt, Wendy. Bright colors, an image in the center, and that fun backing. What's not to love about it? I especially like the vintage image of the center panel.
