Sew Delightful Baby Quilt

Monday, December 12, 2022

Hello!  I am trying to finish up some 
blogging before the end of the year.  I have about
5 finished quilts that I want to share with you (so stay tuned). 
Sometimes snapping nice pictures is the hardest part for me!

Today I have a little baby quilt I want to share.

This pattern is called Sew Delightful from my book, 
Quilt the Rainbow.  The original quilt (the red one) is quite large
finishing at 90-1/2" x 90-1/2".

Sew Delightful is easy to make bigger or smaller, square or rectangular.
I made just 4 blocks to make the perfect-size baby quilt!  
This one finishes at about 46" square; not too big or too small.

Sew Delightful is a fat quarter-friendly pattern so
 you probably have lots of fabric in your stash that would
work for this (you might just need some background fabric).
And while the quilts in the book are mostly
monochromatic quilts, I wanted to show you that
they would also be cute in multiple colors!  Blue and green
is one of my favorite color combos for a boy!

The quilting panto is called Abacus Squared - a favorite panto of mine. 
Especially for boy quilts!

Jen Ostler in Highland, UT quilted it for me.
She always hides a little image in the quilting,
this time a little arrow.  Do you see it?

I had all of the fat quarters and background fabric in my stash
so I only had to buy the back and binding fabric!  It feels so good
to use things up!

You can get the book
Quilt the Rainbow in my Etsy shop HERE.

If you make this quilt I would love to see it on Instagram!
