might be my favorite baby quilt so far

Pin It If you haven't seen it yet, Amy's featuring me as her Blogger's Quilt Festival Blogger. :)

And Chubby Stars directions for Week 3 are posted here.

Back to my originally scheduled post.

I've done a few baby quilts.

And this one isn't finished yet, but I think it's my favorite one yet.

I'll write a full process post when it's finished, but Steiger took a rock star's nap yesterday (thank you baby!), so I was able to go from

this

Plume WIP

to this

Baby Olivia's Plume top

to this!

Baby Olivia's Plume WIP

I had so much fun designing and making this (and I did use my Go! cutter to cut the 4" squares that became HSTs).  

I thought I was going to be able to go to the baby shower (that is today), but alas... I can't.  So I sent the mama a picture of this.

The little S-man isn't up yet for today... so I'm going back to quilting!

P.S.

My bloggy friend, Sarah, is having a giveaway!  I'm hesitant to show you what it is... because I know you'll all go sign up, but here it is... with some other stuff too.


P.P.S. We're selling a bunch of DVDs on ebay cheap, if you want some.  There are some good ones, and some terrible ones in there. :)

You are some kind of quilt whisperer. May I ask how you find time to clean your house or do your laundry??

You are a true artist!

Karen said...

That is one drop dead gorgeous baby quilt!!!!!

Aunti Nicole's Corner said...

That is a great baby quilt. She will just love the bright colors! What are you doing to the binding are you doing, are you doing that thing where you just sew to the back and turn the whole quilt? I have seen it but not tried it!
