Fat Quarter Baby


We had some fun playing around with The Fat Quarter Shop’s new book “Fat Quarter Baby“.   It’s a book filled with 20 of the cutest baby quilts ever!  Ten quilts for little girls and 10 for little boys.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy quilt for a baby boy, “Andrew” the whale is perfect.  He looks cute in so many fabrics.  I wanted to see how he’d look with a bit of a modern twist, so I tried him in taupe and grey using Moda’s basic “Dottie”.   I love dots, and it’s been fun to see these little whales come together.

My assistant Sue has a new grandson, so she’s been making the “Andrew” quilt for him using Sweetwater’s “First Crush” fabric line along with a grey Moda Bella background. Don’t you love this paisley whale?


Or, how about this little whale, also from “First Crush” by Sweetwater?

My friend Nancy made up “Andrew” using a blue and yellow colorway.  Jennifer Cabral finished it with some darling quilting!
