Buffalo Plaid Baby Quilt

Sometimes I am asked to make something and it turns out so much better than I could ever have imagined on my own.
 This buffalo plaid quilt was made as a gift for an out of country friend who just had a baby. (And what a great idea for a baby gift!)
 The little red maple leaf was fused on and stitched around the edge for durability. (You know baby quilts need to be washed. Often.)
 I found some really cute cotton fabric with playful Canadiana characters that made a perfect backing and then selected 2 shades of gray and a creamy white for the plaid. (Photos show the creamy white as more yellow than it actually was!)
Super easy to pull together and the quilting was done with my walking foot in not so straight lines from top to bottom.

I plan on making this quilt again, this time with a Minky back and I will take photos of the steps so I can make you a tutorial.

What do you think of buffalo plaid, is it a trend that will stay or be over soon.
