A Baby Quilt: A Gift for a Childhood Friend {Story Book Quilt}

I love sewing up quilts, and I do not do it often at all. I start them, but rarely do I finish them. It seems to be the curse of the crafter, right?

Well, this one I was determined to finish! It was for a friend that recently discovered she was pregnant and is due the end of November. And now that she has it, I can share it with you. :)

I used the free pattern and tutorial Story Book Star Baby Quilt on Moda BakeShop. After posing the question to the Tucson Modern Quilt guild for help finding a pattern, one suggested Moda Bake Shop. Skimming through, I pulled up a few for little man to pick out. Little man picked out the fabric and the pattern. :)

I pieced the center a bit differently in an attempt to use all the fabrics I had for this project. I got them before this pattern. Who doesn't just buy fabric, right?

I love how it turned out with the minky on the back. So fuzzy and soft. I hope she likes it.
