This is what I did this weekend:
I made a quilt & a pattern to match. This is one of my very favorite patterns for baby quilts because it looks harder than it is, it’s the perfect size to grow with baby, it works great for a boy or a girl, and can make a really cute eye spy quilt. I made this quilt using the same pattern. The quilt in the picture is in my etsy shop, although it does look mighty cute taped to my wall…it might want to stay there instead.
The pattern is also available in my etsy shop as a PDF. It’s 29 pages stuffed full of pictures & instructions for making this quilt from start to finish, including tutorials on basting, free motion quilting, and binding (hand & machine sewn). There’s also some sizing instructions at the end included if you want to make this baby quilt into a toddler bed sized quilt. *** If there aren't any in the shop when you check, stop back by I'll be re-listing them throughout the day.
Truthfully I hate writing patterns. It makes my head hurt. Which is usually why they are free tutorials on my blog. With this quilt though, I wanted to make more of a quilting reference guide, so that a beginning or intermediate sewer could have not only a pattern, but also reference material for future projects. Plus it took forever…….and my bum hurts enough to prove it. :)
