This quilt made from scraps of blue and yellow was a baby gift for my sweet niece Elsa. I made it before she was born, but the theme fits her perfectly – sunny, sweet and effervescent.

The pinwheel pattern is easy and fun – it’s hands-down one of my favorite simple baby quilt patterns. Visually, I prefer my pinwheels with a small sashing.

If you’re a beginner quilter, baby quilts are a great place to start. The size is so manageable, and your work goes fast. It means they’re a fun way to experiment!
