Building Blocks {a finished quilt!}

Don’t you just love baby quilts?! For one, they are small and therefore cute, but also, we can get them finished much quicker ;-) This quilt top went together very quickly, especially given the size of the blocks. Of course, it then sat and waited to be quilted and bound until I could get a few other deadline projects marked off the list.

For the quilting I did a simple loopy meander which I always think is sweet on baby quilts and I finally finished the binding last week. The fabric is my Fairy Edith collection. It’s fun to see how different this collection looks with just the blues, aquas, greens and grays.

The pattern is called Building Blocks and was written by my sweet friend, Anjeanette Klinder. It can be found in her pattern booklet, Baby Quilts.

The large blocks are simple to piece together and I think make a striking design. Deciding where to place each color in the quilt top was the hardest thing about making this quilt!

We are currently in a serious heat wave in the midwest (temps in the 90’s with the heat index at 110+!) When I took this out to photograph, I literally felt like I was melting by the time I walked back inside.

Thankfully we have that pool in the below photo that I can use to cool off (but probably not until the sun goes behind the house and we get more shade!).

It’s now time to wash and dry this sweet quilt so that I can give it to someone special.
