Quick Baby Shower Gift – Tummy Time Quilt

A great family we met when we moved to Colorado is expecting their second baby boy in September. For the baby shower, I knew I wanted to give something handmade. I was browsing in Hobby Lobby when I came across this pre-quilted navy and white stripe fabric.

Adding Trim

I grabbed 1 1/2 yards of fabric and some gray quilt binding and got to work. Pinning the binding to the edge of the quilt took longer than anything else! Here’s how it turned out.

Baby Boy QuiltI think second babies sometimes miss out on all the special handmade goodies first babies get, so I added this baby’s initials with some teal embroidery thread. Now there will be no question whose quilt this is!

Baby Boy Quilt with Initials The quilt was a hit at the baby shower, and it was so simple to make. I’ll be keeping this project in mind for the next baby shower that comes along!

    Great and simple idea, Meredith! Is your quilted material 36″ wide?

      I think it was about 54″ wide. 1.5 yards made an approximate square, so I just used those dimensions for the finished quilt!
