With the encouragement of my quilt group, The Pine Needlers, and my mentor Sheila Sinclair Synder, I’ve finally produced my first quilt pattern! I love making new quilts and coming up with new designs. Sometimes simple is best, and this quilt is a good one for the first time quilter, or for a quick baby quilt. The crib-sized quilt top can be cut and pieced together in a weekend. Then depending on how crazy you want to quilt it, that will take a bit longer!! (And yes, I quilted it “CRAZY!”)
I did a crib-sized quilt using some colorful prints out of my stash. And speaking of that, this is a good one to use up some of your stash on because it looks great scrappy.
My quilt group used this as the pattern for their 2012 raffle quilt. They used a more sophisticated color palette and limited the number of fabrics used to achieve a more subdued look. It turned out wonderfuly….and I hope you are enjoying it Virginia! (The winner of this year’s quilt!)
Hop on over to my Shop page and you’ll find the pattern for sale! It’s only $8.00 and that includes the shipping! So get one for yourself, and a gift for a friend. Enjoy! And happy quilting!
