It's a Prickle- and a finish!

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 154 but only my second baby quilt!  I made my first baby quilt ages ago, it was LQ# 48!  I'm going through that phase where my friends aren't having babies but neither are their babies.  Have you ever noticed that, you go through wedding phases, your wedding and your friends weddings, then it's your babies and your friends babies, then your friends babies start getting married?  Well I hope I'm entering the babies baby stage because I sure enjoyed making this quilt.

I  needed a pattern for a baby boy, I had no problem finding baby girl colors and patterns that I liked, baby boy options were mainly sailboats and trucks.  Then I stumbled upon this Hazel Hedgehog pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.  Even though the hedgehog is named Hazel, I thought it would work for a baby boy quilt.  To make this quilt I used both of the Hazel Hedgehog patterns, I and II.  They are available here.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 154
I've named it Prickle, because that is what a pack of hedgehogs is called!
It finished at 36 1/2" x 36 1/2"
It has approximately 188 pieces.

This is the fabric I'm using for the back!

It's by Kate and Birdie for Moda.  

I've already started my next project, a flowering snowball quilt that I'm completely copying from Nicole, pictures and details to come.   But here's Nicole's, I expect  mine to look pretty similar!


  1. Prickle is adorable! You're right - baby boy quilts are hard to plan. Great pattern. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Yep....cute little boy quilt top it is.....what little one could resist this one....Love baby quilts and all the cute patterns out there now.
