Little Climber

IMG_7789-1

This quilt reminds me of my baby going up and down the stairs 1500 times a day. Chasing him up and down is the only exercise I get lately so I guess it’s a good thing!

The back of this one is the big Make Life dot by Sweetwater (bought here) and I quilted this following the lines of the "steps" with an extra line on the top edges of each step for an extra something.

It’s machine bound in Kona Aqua. This one is in the etsy shop.

aw! that's really cute. you should always make up stories for your quilts. that makes me want to make it just because of the cute remembrance of owen going up and down the stairs. :)

I love the pattern. Using less white looks so much nicer than a full zig zag of white. The colors are great too! Thanks!

Okay. You're going to have to seriously stop quilting. I'm about to pull out my debit card everytime you post a new one. I keep saying "this one's my new favorite"!!! I LOVE this one!

I love this pattern! I just wrote a blog post showing off several of your patterns: Easy Bake, Basket Case and Chain Reaction. http://thefabricquarter.wordpress.com/2011/02/10/quick-quilts-from-easy-patterns/
Maybe you can write a post about how you fit in the time and some of your tricks to making progress when you're running around after little ones! do you leave your sewing machine and ready at all times?
Thanks ~ Wendy at The Fabric Quarter

I love this quilt. The colors are just "baby" enough if that makes sense. Just beautiful.

This quilt, coupled with my want to highlight a certain fabric became this:
