Quiet Baby Quilt

Calm and quiet quilts are not usually my style.
I like colorful, bold and sometimes loud.

I was making this Cathedral Window baby quilt
and had the "windows" pinned inside the panes,
but did not like them at all.
They were too dull and boring.

A friend came to visit and was looking at the quilt
and asked why I just didn't leave the "window" parts empty.
She liked the look with the panes folded back and stitched down.

The more I looked at the quilt, the more I agreed.

The quilt is made with three randomly placed colors of fabric...
golden, gray and a mint green.

The arcs are folded back and stitched down.
Stitching these down is so fun...
just follow the arcs around the quilt until they are all stitched.

This is a calm quiet quilt with a fun design.


Just a reminder about the rotary cutter blades a friend is selling...

She asked me to test these blades for her
and I have been using one for a while.
It is sharp, smooth and has lasted as long
as a Fiskars or Olfa blade usually lasts for me.
I have not seen a difference between with these blades at all.
She is offering a coupon code for $1 off a pack of ten blades.
You can find them on Amazon
and the coupon code is "Doodlebu"...
good until October 31st. 

I'm linking to Patchwork Times today.

Happy Quilting!!
