During my vacation, I pieced a quilt top for a colleague whose wife is expecting their second child. The baby boy is due at the beginning of February, so this little quilt needs to be done by the end of this month.
The pattern I chose for this baby quilt is the Hashtag quilt by Camille Roskelley. Camille's design has 30 blocks, but I thought that would be a little bit big for a baby quilt, so I decreased the number of blocks to 20, in a 4 x 5 layout. The size is going to be about 45" x 55".
I used a Kona Navy background (a first for me) and a jelly roll of the Apple Jacks collection by Tim and Beck for Moda. I have half the jelly roll left so I think I'll use those strips for the binding.
I ordered the backing fabric last week, so it should be here within the next few days. I decided to quilt this little baby quilt with a gentle meander to keep the quilt nice and soft.

Wish me luck!
