Making Use of Scraps

Using the scraps of Laken's quilt and from some Anna Maria Horner fabric I had, I was able to make another quilt for a friend who is expecting a baby next month. I wouldn't have thought to pair it with white borders, but I was inspired by this piece I saw. I enjoy looking at beautiful quilts on the web. I would love to have more time to sew. I bought the backing for this quilt at Broadbent's; it is from a line by Mary Engelbriet. I didn't know she designed fabric. Anyway, Broadbent's had some yellow, black and white fabric bolts paired together that looked very fun and would make a beautiful quilt. I also saw some nautical fabric that would look great in Cael's room. But, too many ideas, too little time.

That is very cute! You need to put up a picture of the back. I'm curious what fabric you used.
