Boy Baby No. 4 Baby Quilt

My niece apparently loves chaos so added a new baby boy to her family of 3 boys in December. Baby Finley needed a quilt to keep up with his brothers!
I found this set of 6 fat quarters on Etsy and cut each into 4 nine inch squares and made big nine patches with 5 inch strips and a center aquare of 5 inches. Then sliced into quarters for a dissapearing nine patch. With a 5 x 5 block pattern I was one short (6 x 4 = 24 blocks) so a wonky star was born for the center. Came together easily and I used leftover bits for a sensory mini with crinkle lining and ribbons.
It’s on it’s way to her and her 4 boys with the 4 square pups.

The other boy’s quilts. Little Skyler is 3 now. The red sashing with turquoise binding is what started the whole baby quilt journey. We have 7 ‘grands’ now and each has their own.


Such a wonderful quilt! The prints are fun but combined with that navy fabric it doesn’t look too childish when he’s growing up.

The quilt is wonderful. Love the special center square and the extras. You have lucky grands!

Love the pattern; it makes everything look slightly off-center (in a good way!) Fun fabrics, too. What a happy quilt tradition!

What a wonderful tradition! All those kiddos will have their own memories tied with their quilts!


Love that pic at the end…you need a new one with 4! Love this new addition especially the center star.

This is so great! I love the little taggie blanket to match!!! What a fun tradition!

I love this quilt! I think it is great that you have managed to gift quilts to all of the children! Each one is unique and just so colorful and fun.

I am going to try this pattern but on a bit smaller scale for my new great niece!

What a fun pattern!

Your background fabric choices work so well with all the prints and I love the way those golden squares pop against the blue. I really like your solution for being one square short, that wonky star is perfect as the focal point for your quilt!

The little crinkly taggy toy was a great way to use up the scraps and a fun addition to this quilt gift!


Really cute fabric choices! I love it and I bet your niece does, too!
