“Happy” Baby Quilt

**Want more baby quilt ideas? Check out these patterns.**

I was so glad to have the opportunity to complete another baby quilt testing the “Looking Glass” pattern by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs.  Cheryl’s patterns are well written and easy to follow – I hope you’ll grab one up, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

The pattern is available in 4 sizes and is great for charm packs or layer cakes. I chose to do the baby quilt size.

It worked up fast and I had it done in no time.  These are the kind of projects I like!

Happy Quilt Front

I used the Betty Dear Charm Pack by Robert Kaufman and the solid is Bella Off White. I love this mix of fabrics and kept the completed top on the design wall for a few days because it was such a cheerful addition to my sewing room.

Every time I walked by it I smiled, so I decided to name the quilt “Happy”. I know, it’s a bit dorky, but I really do smile when I see it so I figured I’d go with it.

Happy Quilt Back

I pieced some extra blocks for the back and love that the quilt is ‘reversible’. The binding was a Kona solid I had in my stash and I think it’s a perfect binding.

Happy Quilt Binding

The quilting is wavy lines I did horizontally. I didn’t try to keep them even, I just kept it loose and let it flow. I love the texture it gave and it’s so cuddly it will be perfect for a baby.

About Beth

I'm a wife, mother of two, and lover of all things crafty. I love to cook up new things in the kitchen and in my craft room, and sometimes get "licking the spoon" mixed up with "licking the fabric"!!

  5. Baby quilts are so much fun to work on, aren’t they Beth? This one does seem extra happy, and the soft quilted waves are great. I think it is really cool that you are pattern testing for Cheryl.

  6. I love to make baby quilts. Now I need to make a few more to keep on hand!! Usually I just use up my fabrics in squares, but I really like this pattern!
