Friday Finish - A Baby Quilt and Change Pad



Today I delivered a commission to the mom of one of my daughter's classmates.  She is expecting a girl and asked for a pastel colored quilt and a pretty travel diaper change pad.  I quickly put the quilt together, using a charm pack of Urban Chik's Dream On and a few matching solids.  The change pad was a bit more of a challenge as it was the first one I've ever made.  I quilted some terry cloth and bamboo batting, and then backed it with some beautiful floral rip stop fabric that I had originally purchased to make a raincoat for Olivia.  The only place in the process where I had to stop and think was how and where I wanted to attach the velcro for the closure.  It ended up a nice 6.5" square, only a tad bigger than a diaper, and a good size to throw into a bag.
I'm very happy with how well it turned out, and will probably make another one this weekend for a friend of mine who just had a baby girl this week.  The baby came so fast she actually gave birth in the elevator of their apartment building so she definitely deserves some good presents!

  1. Looks beautiful, Ann! I love seeing new projects like your changing pad. Wonderful that you made it so portable for her. My SIL calls baby quilts 'draggers'--something that may be drug through who-know-what, and warns against over thinking them. I agree. Good example of how good color and simple design, quilting included, can turn into a stand out baby quilt. Even if it turns into a dragger.
