Grayson's baby quilt

Another first baby was born to Lynnette and Joel in July. I finally got the quilt finished a few weeks ago and delivered it this past week. This quilt is a One Block Wonder quilt and the fabric was a print with funky bugs all over it. It was so much fun to work on. Arranging the hexagons on the design wall is always enjoyable. I made a bunch of solid cubes to match the colours in the quilt and tried a few layouts:

I settled on these stepping stones so it looks like stones in a garden:

The finished quilt:
I quilted a meander in the bugs and loops in the blue border:

I found the perfect bug print for the binding and the backing of the quilt:

Some of the hexagons in the quilt:

Even if you'd be having a bad hair day, one look at these bugs would brighten your day :-). Hope baby Grayson enjoys many a giggle, checking out his bug quilt.

I bought the One Block Wonder book after seeing your post about the lovely wedding quilt you made. I have my first one block wonder on the design board, it's not too bad, although the fabric wasn't quite what I was after. It's for my niece's baby due in January, so I have a bit of time to finish...
