Foundation Paper Pieced Baby Girl Quilt

I started this quilt last year on a whim when I saw a tutorial for paper pieced blocks making its way around the internet. You can find the tutorial here. I had so much fun piecing these blocks, I’d like to do another one of these quilts in the future.

I finished putting the top together back in January, but put it on the shelf so I could put together another quilt for a baby shower I was invited to. Then I started on another quilt for a baby that was already born. That quilt ended up being Indigo Triangles. Now, the baby that this quilt is intended for is set to make her entrance into the world in the next couple of weeks, so I decided to quilt & bind it at the same time as I quilted & bound Indigo Triangles. Here’s the finished product.

The quilt finished at 41″ square.

I did a simple all over stipple for the quilting.

Here’s a peek at the back. I had enough yardage that I didn’t have to piece a backing for once, which helped this come together much more quickly.

Here’s a closer look at some of the blocks. I had fun fussy cutting with the centerpieces. The snoopy, skunk, little girl and yellow rose are my favorites.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I’m linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Up Friday!

Finish It Up Friday January 12, 2018

I managed to finish the quilt top for the foundation paper pieced quilt I’ve been working on. I added 4 borders to it but it’s still on the small side (in my opinion), 43″ square. I cut the backing and picked out the binding fabrics so this one is ready to be quilted.

But I’ve put it aside for now because I was invited to a baby shower, this one for a baby boy, so I need to get cracking on that quilt. I bought a pattern called Broken Frames that looks pretty quick and easy.

It uses a charm pack and some yardage. Of course, I don’t have a charm pack so I picked some fabrics from my stash. Luckily I had 16 different green fabrics I could use for the charm pack pieces. I decided to do a green color way to make it “boyish,” I could have done blue but since I just did a blue quilt, I wanted to do something a little different this time. Hoping to have this pieced up and quilted really quickly!
