Baby Rocketships

Here is baby quilt #2.  I had so much fun with it, because I’ve never made a baby quilt for a boy before.  I also didn’t buy any new fabric…I raided my stash, and I love how it all came together.

The quilt measures 32 x 42, and I used all fat quarters.  The pattern is Mini Modern Rose Garden by Carolina Patchworks.  I love the pattern…beautifully simple to show off great fabric.  I will certainly be making this pattern again!  I purchased the mini modern rose garden and modern rose garden patterns, so I have lots of options to choose from for the next time.

This baby quilt was sent to its new home today to await for baby’s arrival on Tuesday :)

Baby Flower Power

It’s baby season, so I’ve been working on a couple of baby quilts.  One of my really good friends had her second daughter, Riley, 4 weeks early.  Riley will be snuggled tightly in this super girly baby quilt.

The pattern is the baby throw by Valori Wells.  The quilt measures 30  x 42.  I used all fat quarters except for the plaid on the back .  It was a fun pattern, and I will certainly be using this pattern again.  Perhaps next time I will make the adult throw.

Cottage Romance

I’m so in love with Camille’s Jelly Filled pattern, and this was my first quilt using that pattern…except I used fat quarters instead of a jelly roll.  On Super Bowl Sunday, one of the local quilt shops had a super sale on fat quarter…$1.25 each!  Needless to say I shopped ’til I dropped.  I bought a whole bunch of what I call shabby chic fabric, and I used the the Jelly Filled pattern.  The pattern is for jelly rolls, but you can easily modify and use fat quarters.  2 strips that are 2.5 x width of fat quarter = 1 jelly roll strip, approximately.  You can get 3 jelly roll equivalent strips from 1 fat quarter.  Great way to use up fat quarters too.

The quilt top measures 60 x66.

Scrappy Fat Quarters

While I was taking my beginner quilting class in November, I caught the quilting bug and made this quilt top.  This was the first time I went to the quilt shop and picked out the fabric all by myself…huge accomplishment.  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but then I remembered my teacher saying “start with a fabric you like, and go from there.”  That’s exactly what I did.

The pattern is called Fat Quarters Gone Wild and designed by Darlene Szabo and Debby Bond from Sew Graceful Quilting, and the quilt top measures 59 x 60 and is not quilted…yet!
