This is my first quilt and having a great reason to make it was the energy boost I needed……I now have my first grandchild, a boy named Cole! Cole is now almost 8 months old and this comfy, cozy quilt was ready for him just in time.

This being my first quilt I went the inexpensive route with a small template and disappearing ink pen. It does take a bit longer, but not much and the end result is the same.

I went to a specialty quilt store, called Quiltz-here in Phoenix, AZ, with my youngest daughter (who was the expectant mother) and picked out some fun fabric that was as she had specified “not to babyish, more little man!)

These are some of my favorite toys. I used a chalk marker for the darker fabrics and a disappearing ink pen for the lighter, they both worked wonderfully.

I did some surfing on the internet for videos on quilting and found one that had safety pinned the quilt backing and batting to the front. This worked great for me and saved time also.

I used my machine to quilt the blanket and tried out some fun designs while I at it. I even spelled out his name on some of the lines as well as put in a few stitched doggies!

This is the final result with a nice checked binding to match and all tied up (with some extra binding in a bow) and ready to be delivered (pun intended)to the Baby Shower!
