Blogger's Quilt Festival

Blogger's Quilt Festival is here again! As soon as Amy posted about this Fall's event, I knew which quilt I wanted to show.

When I found out my friend Aimee was expecting a baby I began knocking around the idea of making the little one a quilt. And when I found out she was having a girl I knew Fig Tree's Fresh Cottons line would be perfect!

Fresh Cottons Baby Quilt


So I knew what I was going to do, and what fabric I was going to use, but just hadn't gotten around to starting on the quilt yet. Then I got the baby shower invitation... but I still hadn't started the quilt. Then a week before the shower the little one made a surprise early arrival.... okay, now its really time to get started!

Fresh Cottons Baby Quilt

This quilt came together so quickly! I pieced and basted it one day, and the night before the shower I quilted and finished the binding.

Few things better than a new quilt for a new baby.
