Perhaps the cutest quilt I've ever made.

Super Shoo-Fly!!!

I've been calling this the cutest baby quilt in the world and now that it's done, I haven't changed my mind one iota!!! 100% from stash / scraps. (You may recognize that lovely green from this quilt and this quilt!.)

All piled up and ready to go.

So I had seen this and this. So I had super shoo-flys on my brain. Then I saw this and this with the perfect quilting pattern. Then a super super beautiful new baby was announced as being on her way a little bit early AND I WAS OFF. Then the week after I had pieced the top I saw this. Lots of shoo-fly love going on right now!!

Just a couple more shots of my latest.

As you can see, I had a very limited amount of light pink sock monkey so a) used two different prints and b) therefore went with 6" finished squares (so 18" finished blocks so a 36" finished quilt). The other super shoo-fly I am making has 8" finished blocks so it'll be 48" instead (see pattern I drew Monica below!).

Monkey MishMash

I cut the fabric on a Thursday night. Pieced the top on a Saturday afternoon. Made the back, and the long binding strip, and the sandwich on a Sunday. Quilted it on a Monday afternoon & put the binding on that night. The blindstitching took me a week, but I do tend to be quite slow at that. YAY. (What I'm saying is, could easily have been done in probably two days total if you worked on it straight through.)

Pieced back.

Oh hello there pretty pink binding.

As mentioned it's 36x36 which is the smallest baby quilt I've made. I generally go for larger b/c I want the baby to be able to use the quilt longer, further into their life as a toddler, young'un, etc. But I really wanted to get something off to this new beauty right away as her momma has done some very nice things for me. Plus she's gonna need some pink power to defend against her three older brothers! :) Heh.

Welcome to the world, Truly! You are so very loved.
