The Tabby Road Betty Baby Quilt

This quilt is available for sale in my shop!

The April Culcita Box fabrics were so much fun to sew with. I struggled a little with what I wanted to make with them and ended up making two different quilts (I am hand quilting the second one, it won't be done for a bit).  But I do have the first one to share with you today.

Forgive the upside down quilt. I wanted a pattern that would show off the fabrics and not cut them to tiny pieces.  I also really wanted to make a baby quilt with them because they are so bright and happy.

In order to make the Betty Quilt pattern FQ friendly, I made my blocks slightly smaller.  It worked out perfectly and just made the quilt slightly smaller.

Since the collection is so colorful, I knew that I didn't want to use white or gray as the background color.  I took a small risk and with Kona Ice Frappe.  It's not crazy colorful, but I like how it works with the fabrics in the collection.
Once the quilt was quilted and ready to be bound, I ditched my plan to use dark gray as the binding and took another risk.  This is Kona Chartreuse.

There were a couple prints in my stash that probably would have worked for the backing, but I didn't think they did Tabby Road justice so I picked up this Disco Kitty print from Lark Cottons. If you have never ordered from this shop, the owner (Heather) cuts the fabrics nicely on-grain with a pinked edge. I always appreciate the care she puts into my orders.

  2. So adorable! I bought some of those fabrics to make my daughter a dress but I think it might be a little too crazy. But I love it in a quilt. (And I'm going to have to buy your pattern just to give you a better review!)

  5. How much smaller did you make your pieces to use with fat quarters?

  6. Out Granuloma Annulare Treatment 50 states, Texas has the highest number of people without any health insurance. So, what happens when they need health care? Who actually pays for emergency trips to the E.R.?

  7. Despite the dispute over the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, physicians say that implementing the health care mandate is vital. It's not just vital for U.S. citizens who need access to health care: It's critical for Skin Granuloma communities, our states and the nation as a whole.
