Hello, Baby!

I don’t know why it took me so long to finish this quilt! I think I was mesmerized by the bright colors of the Wonderland Stacked Coins quilt and this one seemed a little boring so I put it aside. I’ve been working on hand sewing the binding for a couple of weeks now and I finally got it done on Sunday night. Here she is:

Hello Baby! Quilt (front) 

I quilted it with a soft pink thread in a chevron pattern. I used a yellow binding that matches the back of the quilt. The finished size is about 45 x 60 inches. I washed it a couple of times to get the blue chalk out (from the quilting lines I marked) so it is super soft and crinkly. The blocks are pieced from the pink, green, and yellow strips of a Hello Betty jelly roll. (Hello Betty is collection of 1930s-style prints from Moda.) I have lots of the red and blue strips leftover for another project. Oh, wait!  I have a second jelly roll of the same collection. Yummy!Hello Baby! Quilt (folded) 

You can see I used one of the blue strips on the back:

  1. […] I made this quilt using a pattern called Popsicle Posies by Sandy Klop (of American Jane). It’s a pretty easy pattern, but the final results look complicated and intricate which makes all the time it takes to assemble it well worth the effort. You will need some undisturbed space to lay out your pieces while you sew the top together (I did not have that luxury). But as a bonus, you will have some nice orphans – I used mine in this baby quilt. […]
