Friends of ours had a sweet baby girl right beforeChristmas. I knew I needed to make aquilt for her, but with the Holidays and work, I wasn’t able to get started onit until late in January. By then, Iwanted to make something quick and easy, but wasn’t sure what pattern or fabricto use.
That’s when I noticed a Marmalade (by Bonnie & Camille)layer cake sitting on my cutting table. I had taken the stack of fabric out of my stash because I was planningto make the Scrappy Tiles pattern by Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs wayback in the Fall.
I started cutting the fabric almost immediately and before Iknew it, I had a baby quilt top all pieced and ready for quilting. If you're looking for a fun, fast and easy pattern that would look good with any fabric, I highly recommend Cheryl's pattern. To purchase your copy, just click on the link above.
The quilting was quick and easy – a big meandering stitchwhich kept the quilt nice and soft. For the binding, I chose a beautiful aqua dots fabric from the Vintage Modern collection which goes reallywell with the colours in the Marmalade fabric.
Now I just need to wash and dry it and deliver it to the newparents!
