Herringbone Baby Quilt


This snappy little baby quilt reminds me that sometimes simple designs and fabrics can have the greatest impact.

Fair Isle Baby Quilt



A sampler quilt, of a sort! This past winter, I set out to make a baby quilt out of strips of different patterns-- a fair isle quilt.  I took inspiration from horizontal patterns in quilts as well as sweaters.


I also dove into a stack of fabrics I'd been hoarding from Cloud 9 fabrics based on Goodnight Moon. Those kittens and mittens!

Sunny Patchwork Baby Quilt




While we're waiting for spring to start up *for real* (it's snowing right now...), this little aqua and yellow patchwork quilt is a spot of sunshine.

Citron and Aqua Sampler Quilt


How did I let this stack of blocks languish in my sewing cabinet for so long (years)? I'm not sure what I was waiting for, but earlier this winter I pulled out blocks accumulated from a few rounds of the 3x6 and 4x5 quilting bees.

Modern Linen Baby Quilt


Earlier this fall, I dove into my linen scraps that my friend Lynn at South Street Linen gave me to play around with.  I've used some of her fetching hand-printed linen before, but this time I decided to use exclusively linen for the quilt top instead of mixing it with quilting cotton.
