I am currently finishing up a few small baby quilts which are part of a personal project I took on at the end of last year. These quilts are part of my “Quilts for Pablo” project.
This project started last year when a dear friend lost her son after only 10 short days. In her son Pablo’s memory I want to make 10 quilts for my local hospital’s Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The day that I got word of Pablo’s passing I also got a wonderful package from Michael Miller Fabric – I had won a competition that they ran and they sent me two fat quarter bundles which were perfect for my project.
This is the first little quilt I finished up. The fabric line is called Flight School and this is just one of the two colour ways I have.
The fabric just called out to be made into wonky stars and I used as much of the fat quarter for each fabric as I could…fussy cutting as needed.
The layout makes the most of the fabric, using as many 4 1/2 inch squares as had left over instead of just using white in the background. I kind of like how it turned out.
I am also using these quilts as quilting practice…I am using Jacqui Gerings wonderful book “Walk” and I am determined to use as many of her quilting patterns as I can.
Mr Wombat says that this photos is the result of cheating…as I took the photo as he was about to fold up the quilt… hence no pinkies in this shot. But you do get to see a little more of him…
