blended baby quilt

I love this quilt!  Another simple baby quilt.  The hardest part was pulling fabric.  It started with pinks and blues and yellows and ended with magenta, peach, pink and a little purple.  I don't think you can go wrong with half square triangles.  Squares were cut at 5 inches and trimmed to 4.5 ( I use this method).  I love the way it turned out, but next time I might cut the squares bigger (cut 6 inches and trimmed to 5.5), only to make it faster.

For the backing I used a Sarah Jane Border Print.

 I must say, as much as I love half square triangles, the trimming can get a little tedious. It's totally worth it, but definitely laborious.
 Binding is tiny hearts.  I've used this print as binding before, and it's a winner.  Perfect for baby quilts.

  9. I found you through "Film in the Fridge" and I've had the most fun this evening looking through your many, many quilts. You have great ideas and I love the spirit in your quilts. Thanks for the inspiration you bring to those who read and quilt!

  10. sweet and pretty quilt! I use a method for HSTs in which you make 8 at a time, with no bias edges, like the 4 at a time method creates. Don't have a link for you but it's easily found online.
