Well, I thought I'd show a few quilts I've previously made. The first is the first ever quilt I made, it's baby-sized, perhaps not big enough for a crib, but might be big enough for a bassinet. It's certainly big enough for throwing over a baby in a stroller or a carseat. It's big enough to put on the floor when you want to change bubs or if you're at someone else's place and want to prevent any spit-ups on their carpet.
I chose some bright fabrics that I thought would be suitable for either a boy or a girl. I didn't really know much about fabrics or what would 'work', so I just chose some fabrics/colours I thought would look good together. The first fabric I chose was the bugs in the centre, then I chose colours that would 'go' with those bugs - the red and the yellow. Finally I chose the gingham/flower fabric in the last border, which was sitting next to the bugs on the shelf. The orange was because I thought it was a bit too 'blue' and would brighten it up. I was quite pleased with how it came out.
I followed a youtube tutorial video to make this quilt, but I can't remember where it was now or what it was called...I think it was just called "Easy Baby Quilt" or something like that.
