Have you ever seen a knit baby blanket that had a halo and wings? It makes an awesome backdrop for newborn portraits. I decided to make a quilted version. Introducing a new pattern: Angel Wings. This baby quilt pattern gives you step by step instructions for a crib-size quilt that would be a lovely shower gift.
I use alot of 2-1/2″ squares in my patterns, and this quilt follows that trend! This quilt is so versatile – make it as scrappy as you want! The wings are 2-1/2″ squares while the white “body” is a single unit. The background can be pieced in small or large units. You can easily customize the background of this baby quilt pattern to match the nursery colors or a theme such as sports, cartoon characters or hobbies.
I made a second version of the Angel Wings baby quilt in blue, as a gift for a close friend. This quilt is ideal as a picture backdrop.
