What a great quilt pattern for showing these wonderful fabrics!
This is really cute! I love muli-fabric quilts and this one has big enough pieces to show off each print. What fun! BTW, I agree with the quilting decision. Sometimes it really is all about the fabric.
Thanks True and Janquilter:) I do love these fabrics-wish I had bought more when they came out!
Thanks Carolmarie- do love these prints- not sure but I think the fish are my favorite:)
And on sale;-)!!!
oh dear....I don't think I should know that...have used up my July budget already adding to my stash of Kaffe Fassett and some Laura Gunn-(someday I'm actually going to make a quilt that's just for me:) Ah well..perhaps it will still be around in August-did you find it through the fab shop hop search engine?
Eeeeeeeeeeeek! Perhaps it would be best to just forget this site exists...sigh...feel like a kid in a candy shop...seriously though- thanks for the link- looks like a super place to search:)
Someone else on here posted...I cannot recall who or where or would give credit:-) But...it has helped me find fabric...and yes it is like a candy store!
great quilt! An easy but very graphic quilt.
Thanks Christine-yes, the nine patch is super easy and I like that it only takes a charm and some yardage- we've had a slew of babies recently in the church and its everything I can do to keep up with them:)- almost caught up for now- 2 more and I have a bit of a breather for about 6 months- unless there are some surprises I don't know about;)
So cute! Love it!
I wish I would have seen this before I cut out my charity quilt I am working on.. this would have been such a great way to show off the fabric.
Joygross It is a good basic pattern and usually it can be done in a weekend- or even in a day if you are in a real time crunch. I think what sets this pattern apart as one that bears repeating :) is that each time you do it with a different set of fabrics, the result is noticably different- so I hope you get to try it soon:)
This fabric line is so cute for a baby and the quilt looks adorable!
Valentinegirl Thanks- It was a gift for a little boy and I imagined him someday (soon:) driving his toy cars up and down the "streets" on the quilt:)
Carolmarie Thanks so much- it is really sweet fabric-found some more online so I may get a small bit for another one- for me:)
Mymble I am going to be making a baby quilt for a friend's daughter. I showed my friend some of my favorite baby quilts so she could pick what pattern I would use (she also selected the fabric collection Out to Sea). And yours was the one she liked the best...(as did I but I did not tell her that until after she told me her choice). I have done this pattern but never with sashing or as a baby quilt so just help my planning and thinking process would you mind sharing how a big this quilt ended up being, how big you individual squares started out as and how wide your sashing was? I have an idea what I want to do but figured would see what you did since it is so cute!
True Hi True-so glad your friend liked the pattern-it is fun. I have an FQ bundle of Out to Sea I've been saving- never thought of this for it but it is perfect. Mine is off and hopefully being loved:) but I can aproximate the size. The original design includes a 3" x 28" border strip on the 2 sides and a 3" x 33" border strip across top and bottom to get to a final measurement of 36" square. I left this border edge off but carried the 1" sashing along the outside edge, so mine was aproximately 32" square ( including binding ) I used Cream Rose batting from Jo Ann's. Hope that helps.
