Sweet baby sampler

Oct 12, 2016

I just finished a whirlwind weekend driving a few hours to help prepare for and throw my sister-in-law's baby shower.  I finished this quilt in the knick of time!  You've seen me working on this quilt block by block as it came together over the summer.  It's so much fun when you get to work from your scrap bins..... and then it looks like this.

I couldn't be happier with this quilt.  I wanted to make a gender neutral baby quilt. The mix of colors lets this happen without being totally just green and yellow.  It's framed up by a sweet orange and white plaid from Wyndham by Another Point of View and bound with a Denyse Schmidt print.  I hope baby and mom will love it.

The blocks are all 12" finished, and are a mix of the Summer Sampler 2016 (including the Ombre Cross block I designed) and The Quilt Block Cookbook.  It was a nice small sampler compared to the giants I usually am working on.  

I sure love samplers of all sizes!

  2. You are so talented. I am curious about how you chose colors. Did you decide on a palet girst or did you pick as you went along?

    1. Hi Linda- Thank you! I chose colors by digging through my scrap bins. I just let them fall into place - but I tried to make sure every color (not necessarily the same fabric) appeared at least twice throughout the blocks. There is only one dark aqua in the orange block in the lower left that I wish I had swapped out for a lighter shade. (Like those in the top right block.) But learn as you go is my motto. I've found I learn about choosing colors every time I piece a block.
