Fox and Stripes Baby Quilt

Just wanted to share one of my new favorite quilts (I think I say that every time!). This aqua and gray fox baby quilt was lots of fun to make. All of the fox squares were originally going to be the same size. A shortage of fabric called for some creativity, though, so four of the fox squares got gray sashing. I think I like how it turned out more than I would have liked the original. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow.

Arizona Baby Quilt

I think I just finished my favorite quilt that I've ever made. This was my first time using Art Gallery solids (I usually use Kona) and I was impressed by their softness and beautiful color. I also really like this simple Greek Cross design and I think it lends itself well with the business of the fabric on the back. April Rhode's Arizona fabrics have been wildly popular in the quilting world. I'm glad on got my hands on some of it because I can see this one going out of stock everywhere soon.


I recently purchased a walking foot for my Bernina and this was my first time quilting with it. It's definitely a completely different process from quilting swirls with a darning foot, but I think it will get easier with time.


It's for sale in my shop.
