An old high school friend and his new bride welcomed a sweet baby girl into the world last week.  I couldn't resist making them a baby quilt to help celebrate her arrival. 
I just adore those tiny little dots and cute little owls paired together.
For the back I used a lovely goldish-yellow dot.
If you are in need of a handmade baby gift, this simple quilt came together rather quickly.  I used one yard of fabric for the center and then added 4-inch borders to the sides.  Harper 's name is appliqued on, using a zigzag stitch. I don't always include the baby's middle name but I love that Rose is her mother's maiden name as well :)  I did simple straight line quilting in a diamond pattern (about 6" apart).  And since the width is approximately 42", I was able to use one piece of fabric for the piecing!!  I also machine stitched the binding on, for durability.  Simple and adorable!!
