Easy Baby Boy Quilt

I am not going to take the trouble of explaining how to sew this quilt, because it is so easy that you can just look at it. I picked a fabric I just loved cut it in six inch strips, and then I grabbed 6″ scrap strips from my stash to fill in for a striped quilt. This is for my sewing buddy, who just gave birth two weeks early and is therefore now excused from producing anything else other than a mostly clean, fed child for the next six to twelve months.

I used my water soluble pencil and drew this robot on one stripe (because she and her hubs are geeks like my hubs and me),

And this boat on another stripe,

Then I used my walking foot to stitch the ditches and halfway points, then I free-motion quilted my two little drawings. I bound it with scraps of binding from my bag o binding scraps. I like to think I could have finished that by her due date if I had been allowed to do so. Easy peasy!
