Oh baby...

Hey everybody—look what Sarah has been up to! 

She’s been busy making baby quilts for her girlfriends’ new little ones. Thank goodness she’s had some time to post the pictures to her blog.

Check them out…here’s a sneak peek.

Baby Posh—a new pattern from our friends at the Blue Underground Studios--is a modern interpretation of patchwork.  Sarah selected Kaffe Fassett’s classic paperweight print as her focus fabric—and then splurged for our super soft turquoise minkee as the backing.  Our friend Sally did the quilting on her long-arm machine, using a new retro pattern she downloaded from an Australian designer.  Simple--yet sophisticated.  What a lucky little baby!

And if you’ve been looking for way to use up those bits and pieces leftover from other projects, just take a look at what Sarah did with her scraps.  I spy Amy Butler, Heather Bailey and Chic Blooms from Art Gallery Quilts.  No piece goes unused here in Amy Butler’s classic wallpaper design quilt. The pattern is a free download—the piecing easy—and the result—fabulous! 

Don't be afraid to mix both small and large scale prints and then pop it with lots of color.  You can keep it all harmonous by playing the color value game.  When all your colors have the same intensity of color--they'll play nice together!

cu soon,
