I made a crib size quilt for my niece, in fact I just finished it today. I used a bunch of materials that I had laying around that my grandmother had given me. It was all stuff left over from clothing and quilts that she gave me so I wanted to pass that down.

The only thing I had to purchase was the interior batting, and I used whats called Dream Green. It's made of 100% recycled materials.

The front is all cotton cloth and the back is a very light flannel that I like to use for any quilt I make. I actually learned to do the different squares and set ups on youtube. The center is made of four squares called nine blocks then hourglasses surround that, finished by pinwheels on the outer edge.

I didn't use a pattern because it was my first foray into the more intricate quilting and it came out a little crooked but I'm really proud of it. I used my old singer sewing machine and a pair of scissors mostly because I didn't have the quilting tools I needed until the very end of the project.

It hasn't exactly been on display but my husband likes it and I'm excited to ship it to my sister, I'm hoping it becomes my niece's 'blanky'.
