How's that for a funky baby quilt? And it only took a few hours to make.
The pattern is "Bountiful Bouquets" by Debbie Maddy of Calico Carriage Quilt Designs. If you're not familiar with Debbie's work, she's well known for her "no diamonds/no Y seams" patterns. Her patterns are easy to follow and come out perfect every time.
To be honest I would have liked to have made one of the large sizes included in this pattern because the blocks were on point but the next size up was 62"x102"!
Yes, I could have recalculated to make it a more reasonable size but this little quilt is destined to become a kit for the shop. And when you are making samples for a quilt you're going to sell a kit to, it's never a good idea to stray from the designer's original directions. It gets to confusing. I'm okay with it though 'cause now I have a reason to make this quilt again...but to the size "I" want.
