So, I found a great solution! Puff quilts! (Tutorial here.)
You simply cut out a 5" square of fabric and a 4" square of fabric. Lay the smaller square down on top of the bigger square (both right sides in) and sew 3 sides. Turn right sides out and stuff.
You do this about a billion times, and come up with all these little squares:
You then sew all the squares together, and there you have the front of your quilt! Some people don't add binding or backing, but I think it looks better with it.
I am SO excited to get the fabric in from www.fabric.com. These are the fabrics for Parker's puff quilt:
Bugs!! I think they're sooo cute. And perfect for a little boy. I also love the color palette of gray, green, blue and orange. I'm thinking I'm going to do an orange minky backing and binding to really make the orange pop. These fabrics are from Michael Miller's Backyard Baby collection.
