Fat Quarter Baby Blog Tour

Good morning! Today is my stop on the Fat Quarter Baby blog tour. Fat Quarter Shop has an awesome new book called Fat Quarter Baby. The book has 20 quilts in it named after girls and boys, 10 girl quilts and 10 boy quilts. They are all adorable.

The quilt I made is a girl quilt named Kristen. The fabric I used is Gooseberry by Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique for Moda.

I love the block used for the Kristen quilt. The on-point setting of the blocks looks great too. It's a great way to make a quilt bigger without a large number of blocks.

I finally tried the zig -zag / honeycomb style quilting I had seen long ago on Crazy Mom Quilts. I really like the look and I am so glad I tried it. The stitch was No.4 on my Bernina 220.

I bound it with the navy and aqua scallop print from Gooseberry. These scallop prints just scream binding to me.

The book is excellent. Perfect to have in your library for go to baby quilts. The quilts are unique and I found myself wanting to make larger quilts with some of the patterns (like this block used for the Kristen quilt). There is a guitar pattern that my oldest daughter (who plays guitar) asked me to make for her wall. Perfect patterns for teenage babies too :)

Here are the other bloggers on the blog tour. You won't want to miss these adorable quilts!
