I finished this baby quilt today for a lady at church. She is due next month with her second girl. I knew I wanted to make something modern this time. Something similar to a coin quilt. With this one I added an inch to the sashing fabric each time I added a strip so that it gradually gets wider. I think next time I will add a little more. It is hard to tell to me. I used some fabric squares from the Hello Betty line made by Moda. I bought the charm pack a while back and have been waiting for the right time to use it. The back of the quilt is some Noah’s Ark material that I have a few yards of. I have used it a few times for the back of baby quilts. I hope she likes it.

Just thought I would add a picture of my boy from his football game the other night. He sacked the quarterback. Way to go Tyler!!!
Last year in September I posted my first free pattern that I designed using EQ5. I have sense named it Crossed Paths. I received an email a few months ago from a nice lady named Elizabeth. She was interested in making this quilt, however the pattern was for a baby quilt. She wasn’t quite sure how many blocks she would need for a queen sized quilt. She asked if I would help her figure it out. Of course I said yes. I also told her that when she was finished I would love to see a picture of her quilt. I got an email yesterday with a picture. She has kindly given me permission to post a picture of her quilt on Fabric Mom. So here it is:
Isn’t it just beautiful? I love the colors and material she used. The heart fabric is just to die for. It really brings movement to the paths. I am so excited to be able to share this with all of you. Here is a link to the pattern and a picture of the baby quilt I made using the pattern.
