A baby quilt for someone special!
Many of you have heard our news! My fourth grandchild (and Sara’s fourth in the niece/nephew brood) was born recently. James “William” came into this world at 8 pounds and 6 ounces and was 21-3/4″ long. I know all grandmothers say this, but he is the sweetest ever! His Mom, my daughter-in-law Maggie, has a very classic style of decorating and his nursery has gorgeous grown-up furniture that he will be able to keep his entire life — except for the crib, of course. The colors are mostly navy and white with some primary color accents.

When his sister, Emily, was born I stepped outside my comfort zone with a bear quilt with applique’. It turned out pretty nice, but was truly beyond my skill level, even with the step by step instructions of a pattern. This is what I used.
I went a little simpler for William and this quilt is one anyone with advanced beginner sewing skills can make. No quilting experience needed. I used this Simplicity Pattern and it has several other nursery decor items you could make and coordinate.
I used the primary nursery colors, with the blue being navy.
