Starting a new Quilt


Occasionally, I accept a quilt commission.  Almost 3 years ago, a couple ordered a quilt for their first baby.  The baby was a girl and they wanted a quilt she could use for a long time.

They are now expecting their second child, a boy, and they've asked for another quilt.  This one will be a different design and fabric.  The fabric they chose is from Spoonflower; so I had them order the fabric and have it shipped to me.

For their first quilt, I did an original pattern from a photo.  This time they've chosen a pattern by Julie Herman.  It's Stereo by Jaybird Quilts.  Here I go with another pattern!


I think this will be a delightful quilt.  They've requested the measurements 48 x 60", so I'll see how close I can get.
May your bobbins always be full,

  1. That fabric is so cool and will 'fit' the pattern perfectly. Simple quilt stitching will complete this one wonderfully. A somewhat unusual choice of fabric for a "baby" quilt but one that will continue to give joy.
