NEW! Bright and Beautiful Buffalo Ridge Baby Quilt

nce again 008

Diane, my mother-in-law, made this Bright and Beautiful Buffalo Ridge Baby Quilt as a teaching sample for a quilt retreat sponsored by Quilts by Barb (quiltsbybarb.etsy.com) held at Easter Seals Camp Wawbeek in Wisconsin Dells, WI. 

031The pattern for this quilt came from Pat Speth and Charlene Thode’s book ‘Nickel Quilts’.  This is one of my favorite pattern books.  So many great variations of quilts that help you use up your 5-inch scraps!  ‘More Nickel Quilts’ and ‘Amazing Nickel Quilts’ are now also available!   032

This quilt is the pure definition of a ‘scrappy’ quilt.  Diane incorporated a variety of baby commercial fabric scraps along with some of gorgeous jewel tone fabric that she hand dyed.  Add the black commercial 030fabric covered with golden stars as the accent fabric and you have one beautiful baby quilt!  All the different colors and patterns will definitely stimulate any child’s imagination!

 

Diane’s sister, Barb, used her long arm quilting machine to cover this quilt with a fabulous, whimsical floral quilted pattern…just stunning!
