Wonky Block Baby Boy Quilt

I told you I was obsessed with boy quilts. Okay, so this one I have been working on for a while. I was going through my fabric stash (which is something we'll be talking about again soon...) and found this fabric. It was a fat quarter bundle that I bought about 4 or 5 years ago and then forgot about. haha.

So, while the hubby was away at Scout Camp (and I was busy not sleeping) I just decided to start chopping up the fabric - with only a small idea of what I would do.

I went with a wonky block style - a totally fun off centered block. Cute to the extreme!

I finished this yesterday and I love love love how it turned out!! It is 48 x 58 - so a huge baby quilt, or perfect for a crib or toddler bed! And finally - I bound it in white. I've never done that plain of binding before - but I gotta say, I really like it! It's really crisp! And it looks AWESOME on back!!

I put in a few strips to make the back wide enough and I love how it turned out! I think making the back cool might become my "thing". lol!

This one is also in the Shop!
As a side note, I have been "borrowing" my hubby's fancy-pants camera to do these little quilt photo shoots. I don't think I'll be giving that camera back... ;)

But I don't have babies anymore. What would it take to convince you to make a quilt for MY bed?

I have a king size quilt in the works (but it's gonna take a while) and a few twin size going too. STAY TUNED!
