Baby Quilts … revisited

My Friday Finish …


This is the baby quilt that was a secret, but not any more!  The other day, I tried to take a picture of it in the sun, but the wind was blowing toooooo hard … so I laid it on the grass, which has a sprinkling of leaves on it … I like it for a backdrop.

Baby Quilt – Revisited 


Do you remember this baby quilt that was a secret until it was giftedIMG_4606

Well a talented friend of mine, Dawn, sent me a picture of a quilt that she made, using the same pattern with her own twist …




Here’s what Dawn said she did to make a smaller version:

I cut 8.5″ squares to start with, cut sashing 2.5″, side borders were cut 4″, top and bottom were cut 5″ for a finished size of 42″ wide and 44″ long. If I make it again ( and I probably will, because I cut a whole bunch of 8.5″ squares) I think I’ll only cut the sashing 2″ to make it a bit narrower. This is a great pattern for using up small ” chunks” – so bright and modern looking!

These 2 quilts are an adaptation of Moda Bakeshops “Flying Arrows.”

By the way … Dawn is a very talented long-arm quilter! If you have quilts you want quilted, she is near Vancouver, B.C.

Back to my Friday Finish

I followed Dawn’s lead and used 8 ½” squares …  but made a total of 35 blocks with the borders being the same size as the sashing.  The sashing is 2½” wide … and the finished size is 44″x 48″.

SEW – has anyone else made this quilt?  I’d love to see pictures of your creation!

Happy Quilting!

  1. I love when mother nature gives us the perfect backdrops 🙂 I love the pattern. I’ve never made it, but you are definitely making me think that I should. Congrats you on your finish!

    • Hi Ann,
      Thank you! It’s a nice easy quilt and might end up being my “go-to” quilt … but maybe not … who knows? There’s always another pattern around the next corner! 🙂
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  2. Hi Gail! Beautiful quilt finish you’re sharing with us today. I love the fabrics and I’m drawn to this pattern. I have some fabrics that would just be perfect in this design. Happy Friday! ~smile~ Roseanne
