Nine Patch - A Baby Boy Quilt

Another baby quilt, for a little boy this time. Our nephew got married a couple of years ago, and now they are expecting their first child. I wanted to make a quilt for them. I was looking for a quick and simple type of quilt that could be squeezed between the many other projects I already have in the making. To save time, I bought this Minny Muu FQ Bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop.
The top was done in a nick of time!

Quilting: Using the walking foot, I made straight diagonal lines across the quilt forming a crosshatch pattern all over the quilt. All is left to do, is the label!

Quilt Stats:

Size: Approx 38 x 52 inches
Pattern: The good ol' Nine Patch.
Fabrics: Cool Minny Muu FQ bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop
Backing: Free Spirit Designer Voile in Robin
Batting: Warm and Natural
Quilting thread: Superior Threads King Tut 40wt in White Linen #971
Binding: Little Stripe in Kryptonite by Michael Miller
Finished: June 2016
