Reims Baby Quilt

As promised weeks ago, here is the Reims Baby Quilt! The pattern preimered at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet festival to great reviews.  I hope you all enjoy it as much.  Amazingly, I crocheted this 3 years ago.  I know before CJ was even born!  It was a fun project for me to do while waiting at all those doctors appointments so long ago.  The blanket is made from motifs that are crocheted together with a single crochet seam.  No, weaving in of ends, you just crochet over them all.  And the motifs are super portable that you can crochet one while waiting in long grocery store lines.  Loosely based on traditional diamond quilts mixed with inspiration from gothic stained glass windows, this baby blanket will leave any new parent in awe of your wonderful gift for the new little one.  Make it as shown, or in the optional quilt layout included in the pattern.
