A One Piece Rag Quilt

I laid out about 8 layers of fabric some were even in several pieces alternating light and dark. Quilted diagonal lines about an inch apart, cut through all but the backing and then bound. I bound with the same fabric as the backing but cut on a bias so there would be some lovely diagonal lines.
8 is a bit much but I was trying to use up some fabric that I wouldn't have used otherwise. It has made for a really heavy crib quilt which is actually really great since both my kiddos love weight on them, just like I do.
My son likes to sleep with the ruffle side down so that the soft side is closer to him. Kids!

Daddy's Rag Quilt

My father has been recovering from his second leg amputation so he needs something to brighten up his room, in a manly way of course.

Crib Sheets

My friend is having a baby. 
I would love to make a quilt but I don't have time right now… but I can whip up some crib sheets and a pillow case!

She and her husband are huge readers so I couldn't help myself with the book fabric. And the other two my 3 yr old picked out. 

As Always, 

P.S. This might become my go to baby shower gift. Can personalize with the fabric. Can be gender neutral. And it doesn't take a ton of time. 

Edit (later the same day):
I have already done 2 more! Purple flowers with matching pillow case and a Menorah fabric. So excited to gift these!
