This baby quilt was made for my cousin's first baby. I wanted to give her something special she could use and that her son would always have. I found "The Little Box of Baby Quilts" by Jenny Wilding Cardon one day while browsing a local quilt shop. I knew this was a must have. And I was right! This little box has so many cute baby/children quilts. Now I just had to pick one for my cousin's baby. Fast Asleep on Cloud Nine was the pattern I knew she would love. The quilt uses two fabrics, white and blue with clouds. I didn't have a hard time finding cloud fabric as I imagined and I even found white fabric with baby items on it (pacifier, teddy, bib...) Perfect! Since this was for a baby I wanted the back to be extra cuddly. I found a light blue minky fabric that matched perfectly. Honestly, I couldn't have asked for this quilt to turn out better. The quilt was quick to sew and even the quilting didn't take too long. After it was all said and done, I realized that sometimes gifts made for others are hard to part with! The finished quilt is 54.5" x 54.5"
