    Ohio Star Baby Quilt for a first boy

    Hi everybody,

    I just wrapped up this baby quilt for my best friend's baby boy. I can't wait to give it to her! It has been killing me not to show it to her (she's a quilter, too) and so I am showing it to you.

    She has two little girls with her and two other babies up in heaven. This will be her first boy to raise and so I tried to make something special for him. It's adapted from Jenny's Ohio Star tutorial and is quilted with a simple stitch-in-the-ditch. It was really fun to make. My little daughter says it's big enough (about 42" x 42") for a big kid and a baby to play together on it!

    I know my friend would appreciate your prayers for a safe delivery and healthy newborn period for the whole family.

    And now I just have to make a cheesecake for her shower this weekend! And vacuum the downstairs...

                            Thanks! One of the things I love about charm packs is how it gets me to associate colors together that I might not otherwise use...I would not normally have included the yellow-green with the cooler colors but I decided to go with it as part of the pack, and I think it does do something to keep the overall tone from being too soft.

                            Anyway...let's hope I'm not deluding myself

                              Thanks! I get a kick out of the backing, too. If I use a lot of white in a baby quilt I always like to put on a busy, dark backing. That way they have a "stainable side" if they need it.

                              But baby spit-up seems to magically wash out, too! And somebody pointed out to me that white is good for a baby quilt because it works so well as a a background for pictures.
