I started this quilt in February, 2015. I made the all the blocks, pieced the front and the back, sandwiched the quilt, and pin pasted it, and then it sat pinned until October 2016. With the holidays approaching I figured it was as good a time as any to pick this project back up, so I quilted it and finally finished the binding in December, 2016. It felt so good to quilt this baby and finally finish it!!!
See all those pinks? Those fabrics were NOT pink until I washed the quilt (I even used color catchers!!)! Those pinks were originally whites, and the oddest part of the color bleed was that it only bled on the whites from the fabric line and not on the Kona white squares. Too strange. I do like the new look with the pinks, though, so I think I’ll keep it! 🙂

I’ve had the Merry & Bright fabric by Sandy Gervais for over 5 years in my stash (gasp)! I finally broke into the layer cake and made this quilt, and boy am I glad I did. I love it so much, and I also love love love the pattern. I used the Simple Layer Cake Pattern, except I made it bigger. The piecing comes together so quickly too for an added bonus. I used this pattern for 30’s Squared.

Love me some striped binding!
Yay! I have a new nephew! 🙂 Just the excuse I needed to start quilting again. I love the combination of the yellows and grays…it’s like sunshine on a cloudy day (you know how the song goes–You are my sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray….).
Baby quilts are so fun to make, since the whole quilt comes together relatively quickly. I just love how it turned out!
I used the Snapshot pattern from Happy Hour by Atkins Design. I love this pattern (I used it for Caterpillar’s Meadow).
I hope my nephew, Ben, loves his new quilt!
