Last January, I won some fabric from Skye Reve on Fresh Lemon's monthly blog giveaway. It was so much fun to get these in the mail and think about what I could make from them.
Remember these fabrics I showed you earlier this year?
I had half yard cuts of these five fabrics so I challenged myself to make 2 baby quilts using only these fabrics and some Kona solids I had in my stash.
I drafted up a simple block of 2 squares and 2 rectangles. For the blocks, I cut everything 2 1/2" wide or into a 6 1/2" square.
For the first quilt, I used 1 1/2" wide white Kona for the sashing and laid four blocks out in this layout.
I also had a light turquoise Kona solid that was just enough to use in a second quilt. I did the same block but laid them out differently to get this pattern.
Not sure which layout is my favorite. Do you have one?
Just as I was about to quilt the first quilt, Don't Call Me Betsy posted a tutorial on what she called a Clamshell Loop. I thought it looked like little scales and would be perfect with these little mermaids.
Both quilts are now quilted, washed and ready to be loved. Unfortunately they have no home so I think I will get them posted to my Etsy site. They would be a great gift for someone's twin little girls.
I will be linking up this week again with Connie at Freemotion by the River, Plum and June at Let's Get Acquainted and Fabric Tuesday over at Quilt Story. All are great blogs so be sure and check them out.
Thanks for stopping in....
