Story Book Baby Quilt

Another niece is having a second baby this spring. I took a "fabric book" panel and used the pages as blocks. Then used strips in a woven pattern to put them together. It is 38 in X 52 in. The quilt is machine pieced and quilted.
A detail view of some of the blocks.
The back is made of three flannels pieced together.
I didn't have enough of any of them seperately, but liked the result.

Ramona,

Great idea with the weaving! It really adds visual interest.

I also love 'piecing' the back of a quilt. Uses up scraps and often looks cuter than a plain color.

Thanks Dr Smak.

TBTAM, I have no children who need to be taken to events or tended. I use the time you give to your children for my quilts, etc.
