My Take on the Windy Girls Baby Quilt

One of my previous graduate assistants had a previous baby boy in July 2020. I actually finished this quilt prior to his arrival but just didn't get a chance to photograph and mail it before he arrived! It did make it to him before he turned two weeks though! 

I had this darling woodland fabric that would work perfectly in his nursery! Plus I had the other fabrics on hands! #fabricstash for the win!

I struggled for a bit to find the perfect pattern to show it off but happily across this pattern Jedi Craft Girl called the Windy Girls Quilt.

I did size it down a bit from a finished size of 12" squared to 10" squared. I did this by sizing down what the original pattern referred to as the white dot strip from 2.5" to 1.5". I also cut the block down to 6.5".

I'm quite pleased with the quilt and glad I went with diagonal quilting lines to not interfere with the cute woodland print.

I made a cute little label with the baby's name which I blurred here for privacy.

I am so glad that I was able to gift my sweet friend this little quilt and I hope they can enjoy it for some time!!

I think I may be making up this quilt again really soon! It was a fun finish!
