Another Tutorial and a GIVEAWAY!

Look at this fun package that arrived in the mail this week from Riley Blake!

Ducky Baby Quilt

Look at this adorable quilt my mom just finished! She made it for my sister Anna (who is not pregnant...yet), so she chose gender-neutral fabrics. The ducks are raw-edge appliqued with machine button-hole stitching. She used her favorite rotary cutter to get those accurate seams. Because this is the first quilt she's made for Anna, she wanted it to be extra special and spent hours hand quilting it.

We also did a pink and brown version, without the ducks, here.

Pink and Brown Lattice Quilt

A close friend of mine is expecting her first baby in a few months, and this was her shower gift.

This is the same pattern as the Ducky Baby quilt my mom made for my sister here. It's amazing how choosing different fabric and dropping the applique created a totally different design. The greens are the same, but the new quilt has a busy print background and nice dark/light contrast.

Note: Use ¼” seams for basting and ½” seams for everything else.

1. Cut two A rectangles 12” by 8 ¼ " out of each of the face, lining, and interlining fabrics. Using a 6-inch diameter bowl, round the top two corners of each of the six A pieces. Make two notches 5” up on either side from the bottom and one notch in the middle on the top, as shown by the arrows in the diagram.

2. Start with one face A and one interlining A. Baste wrong sides together using a ¼ inch seam along the thr…
