Patchwork Baby Girl Quilt


This is my most recent finish.  I had started quilting my granny square quilt but it was frustrating me so I set it aside and did this instead.



I used up the very last of my Lecien florals fat quarters and added in a solid yellow and white and some dots from Holly Holderman's Penelope collections.



Of course the back is my favorite Kona white.  I quilted across the squares which made a really nice diamond pattern on the back.



I did a scrappy binding and sewed it on by machine.



I also finished another baby quilt with the same set of fabrics but added a blue dot fabric to bring out the blue in the floral pieces.  I'll show you that one tomorrow (click the link above).

For now I am moving on to a crib/toddler quilt using Tasha Noel's Simple Life, but I am also getting a little antsy to paint either the dining room or a couple of dressers.  Unfortunately, it's still too cold to even paint in the garage let alone open a window in the house for some ventilation.  I am hoping again for an early spring.
