Here I am enjoying the unusually cool Maryland summer, taking it easy with some more Easy As Pie stroller blankets. I love the name of this pattern because every time I read it I imagine a large slice of cherry pie and I can almost taste it! All the indulgence without the calories! I don’t think I’ll ever name a quilt about broccoli or Brussels sprouts.
Here is the newest Easy As Pie stroller blanket. I chose a black patterned binding because I like the contrast to the sweet pink and blue inside.
The stroller blanket is available in the shop here. The pattern is still in the works.
This week I’m still having fun designing quilts with precut fabric. My newest project is a stroller blanket with charm pack 5 inch squares and fat quarters. I decided to make the back of the quilt as special as the front, so that any way you toss the quilt in the stroller it looks great!
Here is the first stroller quilt I made. It has free motion quilting and hand sewn mitered binding. I wish I had a stroller to use as a prop for the photo, but a rocking chair had to make do.
The quilt is available in the shop here . I’m making a few more samples, then the pattern should be available in the shop in a week or two.
I really love the fabric line, Fairy Tale Friends by Moda. I bought a bundle of fat quarters through a great deal from Craftsy. The fabric is rich in color and has a great texture.
I used 4 fat quarters in the same color family to make this first quilt. The bundle came with two craft panels with scenes from fairy tales. I knew I wanted the quilt to showcase parts of the panel, but it took a bit of thought to decide how to do it. Finally I chose a mottled red flannel as a frame for the pictures. The flannel is also used for the back of the quilt.
The best part of the project is that I only used 1 of the 4 colorways in the fat quarter bundle, so I have lots more fabric to mess around and make more quilts with 🙂 Yippee! I’m such a fabric addict 🙂
