My new nephew’s quilt!

My sister is having a baby boy, and her shower was this past weekend (more about that in another post). One of the gifts I made for her was a baby quilt, of course! This quilt had a snoopy theme; my sister loved Snoopy as a girl and briefly thought about doing the nursery in a Snoopy theme (ultimately she decided to go with something else).

I used good ol’ Quilts for Baby: Easy As ABC by Ursula Reikes to make it, using the Rail Fence pattern (same one I used for Abigail’s quilt).

Three out of the five fabrics used for the quilt top were Snoopy themed! I bought all of the fabric used on the quilt top especially for this project. The fabric on the back were all remnants.

I was afraid with all of the blue, red and white the quilt would come out looking a bit “YAY AMERICA!” which is not really what I was going for. I tried to find a yellow fabric to use in the rail fence blocks, but nothing looked quite right, so I ended up settling for that white fabric and using a cute yellow fabric for the borders.

Applique Detail Snoopy Quilt

How cute is this applique? I found it at Joann’s! They also had a Charlie Brown one, but I wanted this quilt to focus more on Snoopy, so I decided not to get that one. Originally I planned on putting the appliques in the center of the quilt, but my husband suggested putting it in a corner and I think he was right. It would have gotten lost in the center.

Soft remnants for the back! Mama loved the quilt, and once she decides on a name for baby I can add it to the tag!

    • Snoopy fabric can be HARD to find! Especially fabric that is more gender neutral, I found a lot of pink Snoopy fabrics when I was starting up this project, but that wouldn’t be appropriate for a little boy. 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
