Quilt for Mom A.K and Quinn

Posted by PicasaI am a regular visitor to Film in the Fridge and love her simple quilts using tiny squares, especially this one!
The one shown on fitf's blog is made with yummy Echino fabric and I had really wanted to make one similar for Quinn (Ilan had 3 made for him before birth, Quinn, 0. Second child syndrome). I did end up buying Quinn some helicopter Echino fabric for his first quilt but ended up doing THIS!!! I am pretty proud!

I actually ended up using a pattern from Anna Maria Horner's book "Seams to Me". I just modified it to a smaller crib/toddler bed size. I am addicted to quilting now that I have ventured to do it properly in terms of peicing, sandwiching and basting. I used to be only brave enough to hand tie quilts. I am so enjoying the process that calls for a bit more patience on my part. I used to only sew things that took a few hours of my time. Now I can't seem to find a block of time that long so venturing down to my sewing "sauna" (more to come on this later) to do a 20 minute power sew, lends well to quilting. I now am satisfied to do a bit here and a bit there. It all gets done eventually...however slowly, I am proud to say.


  1. Mom Ak quilt is gorgeous! Looks great on my chocolate colored couch

  2. I stumbled upon your quilt in a Google search. I just got the fabric for a quilt for my two year old and was looking for ideas! Your quilt turned out amazing! Now I've got some thoughts about how to cut up my fabric! Thanks for sharing!
