My most recent quilt is for one of my oldest and dearest friends. I’m talking way back to Junior High kind of an old friend. We were roomies in college as well as after college, and are still very much close friends. If we have any say in it, our two oldest kids will be married one day. (Oh come on, you know you want your kids to marry your friends’ kids too!) My friend is pregnant with her third girl and is due this summer. The colors in her nursery will be brown and pink and so I decided to use some fabric I had left over from another quilt (Sweet Baby Girl) but use a totally different pattern. The unofficial name (actually, it may be the official name, I have no clue) of this style is a “lattice quilt” and it involves paper piecing. One of the quilting blogs I follow had a great tutorial on how to do paper piecing and so I thought I’d give it a try on a small baby quilt. At first I loved it but I slowly grew VERY tired of it. I had some issues with the white triangles stretching and getting all wonky because they were cut on the bias. I’ll probably try it again some day. In the mean time here’s this beautiful quilt! To add a little bit of excitement on back of the quilt I put a strip made of a few of the fabrics from the front. The quilt measures 30.5″ x 41.5″. I free motion quilted this cute little thing on my machine. For the original blog tutorial I got the idea from visit Film In The Fridge.
