Calvin and Hobbes Inspired Baby Quilt

Hi there! Today I want to share a baby quilt I started in 2016, finished in 2017, and am now writing about it in laaaate 2018… so, a little delayed. 😀

I made this for a friend of my husband’s — he painted the nursery with an awesome Calvin and Hobbes mural. Which of course meant I had carte blanche to do a yellow baby quilt. Don’t have to tell me twice!

I based the design off of an image I saw from QuiltMarket ages ago.  At the time, it wasn’t a released pattern (it is now though!) so I just kind of made it up to work in a baby sized quilt.

As you may be able to tell, I went a little ham with the quilting. It was fun to try new things! Especially new things in yellow thread!

There’s a mix of puzzle pieces, swirls, feathers… it’s a little hard to tell, but the print sections are done in a figure eight. Nice and quick. I was in “just get it done already” mode, so quick was important.

 

Woody of course was dedicated quilt inspector. I even put a label on the quilt!

 

There are sooo many quilts to show you dear readers! Let’s hope I get to them all before I forget about them! 😀
