After many months of asking, I have finally finished all three minky snuggle quilts for my littles. Hooray!
I am already thinking that I won't be able to get away with baby size quilts for the next round. Why won't they stop growing already? If I could keep them 8, 5 and 2 1/2 years, I think I might.
This is the quilt for the smallest one. These cheerful colors just sing... I decided to try equilateral triangles for the first time and I'm pretty happy with the result. I used a 60 Degree Triangle Quilting Ruler and the intersections of my triangles all lined up really well. It took a little practice to make sure I lined up the units correctly into rows (using the notches as guides) - but spending an extra 10 minutes to ensure the triangles would be in alignment was worth it.
This time I did a little cursive "L" pattern in the quilting. It shows up really well against the minky and looks so much cuter than the other quilts I did with stippling. Note to self: love the "L"s on minky.
In case you missed them, the first two minky quilts I made this year are:
