quilt monday

 This has quickly become one of my favourite baby quilt patterns. You may recall that I have made this exact quilt at least one other time; I've made a few other colour versions as well. It's a fun one!

quilted with Laurie

This is the free pattern from Dear Stella, Dreamtopia. You can find the pattern here .

It's a great pattern, goes together quickly and I love how you can highlight some of your favourite prints.

I loved how the light was laying in this picture. 

I've since made another of these all in pastels and it's amazing how different the quilts look from each other.

I used the print from the star points as the binding. 
Finishes off the quilt just right.

As always, a cuddly flannel for the backing.

Happy Monday!

quilt monday

 I know it's been awhile. And I have to be honest, I feel like blogging is a dying art/interest and that makes me sad.  But I do love doing it, I just don't make it a priority as much as I probably should. Also, I really enjoy having a place where I can go back and look at the things I blog.

So saying all of that, I'm not going anywhere. I just might not be posting as much. But I will!

Now, onto some quiltie goodness.

I made this quilt last fall as store sample to feature some fall themed fabrics. I kept it simple enough and did 6 quarter meter cuts and a meter and a half of a solid and just made up some HSTs. The hardest part is sewing the blocks back together randomly.

quilted with Ground Cover

Most of the fabrics I used are from the Robert Kaufman line, Sienna
You could change out one of the darker solid fabrics and get a quilt that would be a lot more springlike. I love how fabric works like that.

I love the panto Ground Cover on this. It's so striking on the solid fabrics, really highlighting the triangle points. 
The unspoken quilting rule is when a quilt has a lot of points, you would stick with a quilting panto with curves to soften the points in the piecing. Sometimes I agree with that and other times I break the rule.

I had just enough left of this brown wideback for the backing. Should your backing match your quilt top? Sometimes, sure. Other times, use up your fabrics!

This is your sign to grab yourself some fabrics and have fun with them. You never know what you'll end up creating!

Happy Monday!
