Jumbo Granny Squares Crib Quilt

Back in June I pieced two purple jumbo granny squares to be used in a crib quilt. I've pieced two more blocks and finished piecing the crib quilt. The fabrics used in last two blocks had nothing to do with the RSC color of the month. I just made two blocks that I thought would look nice, they do contain purple!

I thought adding some pink fabrics would add a nice touch. As you can see, not all my squares are matching fabrics but they work!


The block below is my favorite of the 4 blocks. That blue fabric with the red roses just looks good.


I especially like the center of this block. I had a small piece of the 2.5" printed border left from the Caught Up in Stitches quilt. I fussy cut these cute butterflies and now that fabric is all used!


I'll machine quilt this crib quilt this winter and it will be donated to The Center for their well baby program. Right now the quilt measures 42.5" but I'm sure it will shrink during quilting.

Thanks! It's not hard to fussy cut when the fabric is cut into a strip.

I love it! The fact that all the fabric aren’t matching is the best part . Exactly as our grandmothers would have done. In fact I have a quilt my grandmother pieced and she did that exact thing! Kudos!

The non-matched squares add extra interest, Gretchen. I think your quilt top is just darling!

Those jumbo granny squares turned into the sweetest little quilt. Just like the caterpillars turned into those cute butterflies! Nicely done.

Beautiful baby quilt! I love how the fabrics are different in each block and how you fussy cut those butterflies to feature them. Thanks for linking up with me for TGIFF!
