Baby Quilt

I finally finished the baby quilt I started weeks ago. After seeing the quilt for my colleague, my daughter asked if I would also be making one for her teacher's baby. Okay, I said! The red and white fabric is an old dutch pattern. I had seen the directions for a shaded four patch on internet and wanted to give it a try, so paired it with the dark grey. Making windwheels just seemed like fun after that. I didn't have very much fabric, so to make the blanket bigger I added a sashing. It was also an opportunity to brighten it up a little by choosing a soft yellow gingham print.
