Scrappy Circles Quilt

In December I received an email from someone who had one of my custom quilts given to her.  She loved it and wanted to do the same for friends that were having babies in 2012.  She wants 6 quilts this year and each one is different.

The backstory on this quilt is a joke between friends.  For the shower the mom received a onsie that said looked something like this, I imagine.

So a quilt was designed based off a request to do something similar.  This was a rough sketch that I came up with while traveling to NY in December.

I knew for the circles I wanted them to be scrappy.  After searching the internet for a tutorial, the decision was made to just make my own.  Look for the tutorial to come out next month.  Thanks to my Indy Modern ladies Lindsay and Rachael for letting me raid their red scrap stash.  Amazingly, my scraps did not include many reds.

Here is the finished quilt.

Hand embroidered


I love adding tags to quilts with the name of the baby that will be snuggling with it.

This quilt will be leaving soon and heading to it’s new home.
