sunrise baby quilt

Almost a year after starting this quilt at a Vermont sewing retreat, I finished it (and just in time for the baby boy we're expecting next month!). I've long admired the Sunrise Quilt pattern by Carolyn Friedlander, the paper-piecing pattern which this quilt is made from, and really enjoyed having the chance to finally

solid improv throw quilt

I have a new quilt to share with you today! Pulling entirely from my bin of solid fabric scraps, I pieced this quilt top bit by bit, without a set plan, over the course of a few months. My only guideline was to match up scraps of similar lengths whenever possible. I stopped piecing once I reached a size I was happy wi

a flying geese quilt for baby ruth

Early last summer, I sent a quilt to Utah-based photographer Mandi Rae for use in her new daughter's nursery. In exchange for the quilt, Mandi used her talents to capture photos of the quilt alongside its new owner, Ruth. I based the color palette for the quilt on a few mood boards for the nursery that Mandi shared, a

raspberry kiss baby quilt

At the end of last year, I was commissioned to make a baby quilt for a little boy who was born in January. My only design guideline was that the nursery included aqua bedding, and it would be nice to incorporate that color into the quilt's color palette. I decided to use the Raspberry Kiss block for this quilt, as I'v

Whole-Cloth Windowpane Baby Quilt by Salty Oat

windowpane whole-cloth baby quilt

What are your go-to-gifts for new babies? I'm partial to quilts (not surprisingly!), and thanks to the sudden influx of friends having babies, I've made quite a few baby quilts recently. This whole-cloth quilt was made for Felix, who was born in October to my friend Katie, the gal behind Fancy Free Finery. Knowing tha

modern sampler quilt along: the final link-up!

After more than a year of cutting, piecing, and sewing, we're finally at the end of the quilt along! (You can see all of the individual blocks and read more about the original idea here.) This pattern was by no means simple---12 block templates, 12 appliqué templates and little written instruction---but we made it! Tha

Navy-and-White Amish Hourglass Baby Quilt by Salty Oat

Navy-and-White Amish Hourglass Baby Quilt

A modern take on a classic Amish quilt design, this minimal baby quilt features scrappy solid white triangles, arranged in a pretty and graphic pattern. Its small, manageable size means it's perfect for spreading on the floor for playtime, tucking a little one into a car seat on a cold morning, or hanging on the wall to create a unique piece of art for a modern nursery. As part of Salty Oat’s mission to support American manufacturing whenever possible, this baby quilt features an…

retro flowers baby quilt

While getting ready to write this post, I looked back at my email to try and figure out when I first started making this quilt. It turns out I won a copy of this pattern---Retro Flowers by Sometimes Crafter---back in 2012 (!), and I believe I started working on it not long after that. I worked on it here and there ove

Home Sweet Home Block for the 2016 Row by Row Experience

For this year's Row by Row Experience (an annual quilt shop hop where store visitors can pick up a free pattern to create a quilt row based on that summer's theme), I was tasked with creating the row for Pintuck & Purl, the fabric and yarn shop based in Exeter, NH, where I occasionally teach. This year's theme is

Oversized Log Cabin Baby Quilt by Salty Oat

Oversized Log Cabin Baby Quilt

A modern take on a classic quilt, this minimal and graphic, eggplant, cream, and orange quilt, is the result of enlarging the traditional log cabin quilt block. Its small, manageable size means it's perfect for spreading on the floor for playtime, tucking a little one into a car seat on a cold morning, or hanging on the wall to create a unique piece of art for a modern nursery. Criss-cross quilting lines in light pink thread form a grid which creates both a pretty, subtle texture and allows…

2016 umbrella prints trimming competition

This year, I'm so excited to once again participate in the Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition, an annual sewing competition to transform a pack of scraps from the Australian fabric company into something fun. (You can see my 2013 entry here, and my 2012 entry here.) As many of you know, my husband and I recently pur
