Simple applique baby quilt

`This little quilt was a baby shower gift quite a few years ago–2004, to be exact!  That “baby” will be nine this year.  It was a simple quilt to make, just squares of various striped fabrics I had, and then hearts randomly machine appliqued onto the background.  There are words embroidered on the hearts, but because I’ve slept since then, I don’t know what it says!  It has clamshell quilting, which I probably traced with a canning lid.

So don’t think that a quilt has to be complicated to be pleasing to the eye, and remember that personal touches don’t have to be hard either.  I’ve found that simple sturdy quilts make the best gifts for baby, because they are more likely to actually be used and loved.
