Scrappy Baby Quilt for Briggs

Well, I finished another one of these scrappy baby quilts for a special little guy.  He's only 6 months old now (I'm really on top of things here!), but I got to meet him for the first time on Thanksgiving.  He sure is a cutie! 

This time I made a special center block.  B for Baby Boy Briggs.  I'm still in alphabet letter-making mode I guess.

I have fine-tuned my scrap block making in the last couple weeks by separating all my little scraps into shoe boxes.  I have one for yellows, blues, greens, pinks, and reds.  So now I keep a box close by my sewing machine and sew a random piece together here and there as a "leaders and enders" project.  Once I get a 10 inch block together, it gets squared up and put into a drawer with a stack of other blocks.  So I always have one of these little quilts almost ready to go! 

I used this cute Adventurer fabric for the back- I got it at Hancock Fabrics. 

Linking up once again to Megan's Sew Modern Monday--Check out some more neat projects!

What a cute quilt and such a good idea to use your scraps in such a way. Love the "B." =)
