A couple of years ago I stumbled across this awesome book at my local public library. It was filled with simple fun baby gift ideas. Today I couldn't tell you the title of that book. I did end up purchasing a copy during a library sale fundraiser but haven't a clue where that book is now. Hopefully I will now be able to find the book!! I'm also certain it is storage with the rest of my crafting books. But that's off topic. Every time someone I know is pregnant or has a baby, I make the same baby quilt. The one I found in that book. It is super simple to make, uses limited fabrics and comes together quickly. Wanna know how to make this wonderfully easy gift? You're in luck! One of my co-workers down the hall just had a little boy with his wife and I just haven't had time to make their gift until now! You only need three fabrics to make this little quilt. It is a great early tummy time quilt. You'll need the following cuts of three fabrics for the quilt top: Fabric #1 and #2: 1/3 to 1/2 yard (depending on direction of print) Fabric #3: 2/3 to 3/4 yard The final front will look like this diagram: You will also need an additional 1 1/2 yards of one of the fabrics for backing. To create this quit top: Cut 14 5.5" by 5.5" squares from both Fabric #1 and Fabric #2 Cut 8 10.5" by 10.5" squares from Fabric #3. Pair up Fabric #1 and #2 and sew together with a 1/4" seam to create 14 total rectangles. Be sure to press each to the same fabric on all. To pair them up, I just sit each stack of blocks next to my machine and stitch away. I also do not snip the threads between each rectangle until I sew all 14 rectangles. Chain sewing like this creates a steady flow and also speeds things up. Take your 14 rectangles and match them up as show in the above diagram. Your seams should be pressed opposite of each other and butt up precisely. Sew these all together using chain sewing using 1/4" seam. You will end up with a total of 7 blocks. You will now take the Fabric #3 and match it up with the created blocks of Fabric #1 and #2. I generally pin a pairing of five to chain stitch these. Finally I add in my third block to each row to do a final round of chain stitching to finish the rows. After all of the rows are sewn, sew each row together. Do pay attention to the direction of your print and placement. You should end up with this: (Ignore the other quilt! I was too lazy to take it down before I took this picture!) For this quilt since the fabrics are so busy and I enjoyed the straight stitching so much with the last one, I did it again using my secret weapon: painter's tape! (Thank goodness for the Dollar Tree and $1 tape!) I have still binding to add but that's a post for another day! How's your sewing going? Love, Ashley

Hi there! Today is my stop on the Sharktown blog tour! This Sharktown fabric by Shawn Wallace is so much fun and is the perfect fabric for those shark lovers in your life! :) I loved how this fabric line had a great range of dark, medium and light blues. So I thought it would be fun to do a gradient pattern - so I came up with this fun Stars and Sharks quilt: Stars and Sharks Quilt Kit HERE SOLD OUT 45" x 45" I started with the darkest fabric - which is absolutely adorable! I think this is my favorite print in the collection! I then worked my way out with and used lighter blue each time. This is a super easy quilt - and you can easily whip up the top in an afternoon - which is my favorite part! I love quick quilts! For quilting, I used my walking foot and did 1/2" lines and followed the lines of the star. I love straight line quilting so much - however it is very time consuming! I forgot how much time it takes to straight line quilt. But I love how it turned out and I love the texture straight line quilting adds to the quilt! Lastly, I used a stripe for binding! My binding fairy is the BEST - I wanted to do bias binding - and I LOVE how it turned out! She did a fabulous job! (Thanks mom!) ;) Alright's let's get started! Supplies: Fat Eighth of dark blue shark print 1/4 yard of medium blue shark fin print 1/2 yard of light blue shark print 5/8 yard of water print 2 yards of background fabric 1/2 yard stripe print (for binding) 3 yards for backing Cutting: From Dark Blue Shark: 4 - 3.5” squares (A) 1 - 5.5” x 5.5” Square (D) From Medium Blue 4 - 6” squares (E) From Light Blue (shark) 8 - 6” squares (F) From Water Print 12 - 6” squares (G) From background: 24 - 6” squares (H) 4 - 3” squares (C) 4 - 3.5” squares (B) 12 - 5.5” squares (I) 2.5” strips for border From Stripe: 5 - 2.5” x WOF strips for regular binding -or you can cut bias binding (you will have enough for whatever you decide). I made this pattern into a PDF file if you would like to print it out! Click HERE to download the PDF version I hope you enjoy making this quilt!
