a flea market fancy quilt for some lucky baby

I guess I should wait to show you this finished quilt so I don’t have back to back posts about the same quilt, but… it’s finished, and I think it’s pretty darn cute, and well, I just can’t not post about it!

As mentioned the other day, I used my favorite Flea Market Fancy line for this cute little patchwork baby quilt. While I’m sad to see my stash diminishing, I’m happy to be using it. I’ve hung on to it for a very long time, just looking at it, and now I’m going to try to make an effort to actually sew with it more often!

For the backing, I used a Moda Bella solid in a great darker turquoise along with a fun pieced improv block I made up out of some of the fabric scraps.

It’s quilted (predictably!) in my favorite straight lines on the diagonal, alternating a single line with a double quilt line, and bound in chocolate brown. It measures about 36″ x 42″, and is now in the shop, (sold, thanks Traci!) and hopefully it will go to some lucky little baby!

    I don’t mind looking at it again. It’s very pretty! I love the back also with the scrap square thrown in there.

    What a great way to showcase these treasured fabrics! Those quilted lines are perfect over the patchwork squares. Some baby (or person obsessed with these fabrics) will be lucky to snatch up this lovely quilt.

    Ok I’m probably going to have people stick virtual pins in me but here goes…I missed out on FMF – it was long out of print before it hit my radar and I’ve often thought I prefer Hope Valley and I can’t see what all the fuss is about…having seen this quilt though I can totally see why people go crazy for FMF. This is fabulous! (Darn it not having any FMF in my stash!)

    I had to snatch this up! It won’t be going to a baby, though (or I should say any single one baby–it will likely be laid on by a lot of babies)–I’ll be using it for portraits. :) It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for!

    So Cute! I just love seeing whole quilts made from Flea Market Fancy still. I got into quilting a little late to the game for flea market fancy and only have a couple tiny pieces left in my stash.

    I’m sure not surprised that that quilt got snatched up so quickly. Probably one of the best fabric lines ever!

    Your quilts are beautiful!! I have always wanted to quilt and my grandmother just turned 89 so I better have her teach me before she forgets how as her memory is quickly fading. Do you tend to hand quilt or use a machine? Was this beautiful quilt hand quilted or quilted with a machine? Thanks!!!

    This is just beautiful. What size are your squares? They are just the right size to compliment this baby quilt.
