Description

Before the power went out last Friday, I had just completed this play quilt for a new baby in our church. The fabric is Lollipop by Sandy Gervais and the pattern is Nine Patch Charm from the "Cider Mill Road" project book in the Art to Heart series. I've used this pattern several times for table toppers and baby quilts and I really like it with charms that have a lot of focal or novelty type prints.  The back is a Moda dot by Deb Strain- I think:) I just "stitched in the ditch" for this- my daughter told me not to clutter it up with too much stitching because the fabric has such cute patterns and they shouldn't be obscured- I think she may have a point there for a small project like this. At any rate- it certainly made it easier to complete in the short amount of time I had for this particular project:)

True

What a great quilt pattern for showing these wonderful fabrics!

Janquilter

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.

Mymble

Thanks True and Janquilter:) I do love these fabrics-wish I had bought more when they came out!

Mymble

Thanks Carolmarie- do love these prints- not sure but I think the fish are my favorite:)

True

Mymble do you know you can still get this fabric online?

True

And on sale;-)!!!

Mymble

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?

True

This one... it is dangerous for me to know this link;-)

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:)

True

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.

Mymble

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.

Mymble

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!

Mymble

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:)

Mymble

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

Carolmarie Pin away:)- I'm flattered;)))

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!

Mymble

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.
