For a Baby Boy and NTT

 Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all.  After submitting my manuscript last week I took a couple of days off to recoup, but lately, I've been working on a quilt for a baby boy.

I decided to make this quilt with my Waverunner pattern, and I love how it looks in a different colorway.  It's always fun to see different interpretations of a single pattern.  You can find the Waverunner pattern HERE!  This pattern is nice and simple to sew, but still has plenty of visual impact.

The nursery is decorated with a barnyard/farm theme with these colors, and it's looking cute so far.  I don't typically include novelty fabrics in my quilt, and I think that helps the quilt grow with the child long past the time the theme is changed.  Even without farm themed fabrics, this quilt will still match the nursery just perfectly!

Last week's party had some great projects linked up.  Take a look at this autumn beauty by Canadian Needle Nana, perfect for the season!

Donnaleeq linked up this beautiful piece.  What a gorgeous effect.  I can't wait to see it finished!@

Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework showed off this scrappy finish.  So lovely!

And finally, this modern masterpiece is by MY Quilts and Crafts-

Y'all are amazing week after week.  I can't wait to see what you link up.  So, let's do it!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. Thank you ever so much for giving my Pumpkin quilt a shout out. It was a pleasure to stitch!

  2. Sweet little baby quilt! I'm sure it felt great to be able to just sew again without any pressure!

  3. It looks great, Kelly! I agree that not using 'baby' fabrics makes the quilt longer lasting.

  4. Your new Wave Runner baby quilt is fabulous, Kelly! I'm not a fan of "baby" fabrics, either. I refuse to make baby quilts out of pastels, period -- considering what we know about the developing eyesight of infants, a baby quilt with bright colors, high contrast, even black and white is the way to go if you want to capture the attention of a new baby. Those pastel baby fabrics probably look like a Sea of Blah to a newborn.


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
