Finish it up Friday{05.07.2013}: Baby Quilt top

First off, it’s my sister’s birthday today. Happy Birthday Sis.

The other big news today is that I finished my first baby quilt top (that now makes 1 x mini quilt, and 1 x twin quilt top)…yippee !!!

Simply Stars
I love V and Co. “Simply” charm packs. They are so bright and colorful. The designs are very geometric but still whimsical, perfect for a baby quilt. The other great thing about this quilt, is it came together really quickly. Each star block took me about 30 minutes, and each 9 block took about 15 minutes. I love that it was so quick and easy. 


After much practice, I think I finally have the knack for matching square blocks. I am very proud how aligned everything is. I was able to take some quick photos this afternoon which is very lucky as we have had thunderstorms/rain every afternoon for the last two weeks. Today is perfect weather!!!


Anyway that’s it, here are some of the details
Simply Stars 
 No pattern the inspiration came from these two quilts that appeared on pinterest….Reverse Hopscotch @ V and Co. and Elephants on Parade @ Sew Crafty Jess.
  Simply Style and Simply Color from V & Co. for Moda + Kona White.
Size:  54″ x 54″

    This is lovely, I completely agree with you, the charm pack you used has great fabrics. I’m working on my first baby quilt at the moment too, it’s fun!

      Thank you. The only issue I have now is the back I was thinking of adding the zig zag from the simply style but I just found out that yardage does not come out until the end of the month 😦

    So great! It’s a perfect mashup of those two quilts. So are all the fabrics “Simply” fabrics? No other stash? I see some things I’m surprised are from those two lines!

      Yes, There are only 3 fabric lines…1. Kona White Cotton, 2. Simply Color and 3. Simply Style. No other stash until I worked on the back. I am definitely in love with the Simply style and will have to buy more when yardage is released end of the month 😉
