Each square only measures 2 inches in the finished quilt. I started with 21/2 inch squares. I cut pink and yellow and cream squares in a variety of baby fabrics including some flannels.
I scattered the squares. First I stitched two squares together and then made them into four patches with the lights and mediums opposite.
When I stitched them together I really didn't try to match them up too much, because some of the mediums really look light. It didn't matter it was a scrappy quilt.
I really had fun with the quilting. I chained double stitched hearts in the border.
I had fun looking up nick names for babies to stitch on the quilt.
I managed to stitch alot of nick names on such a tiny quilt.
Lainey's Grandma loves turtles, so I had to include Turtle Dove.
I machine embroidery stitched the binding.
I stitched in the corner --- Made with love by Marcia and Ritch. Lainey Marie is our cousin's grandbaby!
I folded the tiny baby quilt and slipped it into a one gallon zip lock bag, when I sent it through the mail back in June. That shows you how small the tiny baby quilt was.
