New Pattern - Churn, Baby, Churn

>> Saturday, April 23, 2016

I'm proud to offer my first baby quilt pattern!
Let me introduce you to *Churn, Baby, Churn*

I designed this quilt as a challenge - a way to use only a layer cake for the top and my favourite block, the churn dash. Somehow my local quilt shop still had a layer cake of Sweetwater's Noteworthy laying around and I decided it was finally time for me to buy it and use it!

The piecing is easy; it's almost all straight line sewing with some half square triangles. Big quick pieces! And it's simple to make this quilt bright and busy, or calm and low volume, or for a specific gender depending on the fabric line you pick. Primary colours are great for baby quilts - this would be fun to make with black and white prints too!

I used a bright alphabet print for the back. My 8 year old son still has the toddler blanket I made my daughter in his bed! I know that little ones get attached to their quilts so I thought I would use a backing that would interest a toddler. It could also be the teacher in me thinking that you can never start too soon;)

This pattern works up quickly and would make the perfect gift to welcome a new little one in your life. You can find it in my online shop here.

With Joy,

I love this pattern!!! I just happen to have this same layer cake, with a couple of pieces missing... Would this be a problem?
