Self-commissioned baby quilt

This uncomplicated baby quilt was finally handed out on Friday. I had finished it a month ago. It is made of shirt fabric in boyish colors: I just sewed stripes of striped fabric quite spontaneously. The backing is as simple as the top, only the patches are bigger. I wrote the baby’s name on a piece of calico with a pencil and machine embroidered it immediately for the bag: no corrections, no second thoughts. I hope it will be useful in outings and at home as a playmat  because it is bigger than the average crib quilt.
Shirt fabric is soft and totally washable even at high temperatures. I plan on testing it a lot more in future quilts. The final result is so simple and homely it almost makes you smile...
