This quilt was made with fabric purchased in 2010 in Paducah, KY.

DH and I went there and enjoyed every quilty minute.

I found a fabulous sale on Kona solids (remnants) at Hancocks of Paducah.

I bought it all.

I had a very interesting selection of fabric colors to work with.

That fabric inspired me to create a quilt to remember my fun visit.

I quilted it on my domestic machine.  I stitched in the ditch along the lines of the bargello pattern.

I am giving it to my son for his birthday.

I love how sweet this little quilt looks.

My good friend, Marie (http://chestnutsquilting.com/) , made this quilt for a baby that is on the way.    She wanted smaller baby blocks and wanted it less than 44″ wide so she didn’t have to piece the back.  The new block size is 11″  (the original is 16″).    I love it.  The grandmother died recently and the fabric is from her stash so this is a very sentimental quilt.

NOTE:  Please download the Fabric Requirements again.  I have modified them slightly.

Also.. after making my quilt I had a great lesson learned.

Buy 2 yards or meters of the fussy cut fabric.. it is much easier.

The pattern will work with one yard so if you already have your fabric it will still work.

I made mine with one yard since I didn’t feel like finding that fabric online (I bought it on vacation in Oregon a while back).

This quilt is available in one size:

Baby Quilt – 42” by 42”

Metric – 108 cm by 108 cm

I bought one yard of pirate fabric, found some coordinating fabric in my stash and challenged myself to make a baby quilt pattern.

This is a good pattern for fabric that has 8″ panels or has a border print like the pirate fabric that can be fussy cut.
