When the original line of Bunny Hill came out, I was drawn to it, but it was different than what I usually buy. It was very pretty though and I ended up caving and buying a couple of jelly rolls. What is it about jelly rolls that make you want to buy them? I never know what to do with them so they just sit and look pretty.
A few months ago, Jenny over at Missouri Star Quilt Co. posted a tutorial on a rail fence with a twist. You really ought to pop over there and look through their tutorials. They come up with the most clever ideas. I've never been a big fan of the rail fence pattern, but I loved it with the addition of the diamonds. Perfect. So I grabbed a jelly roll and before I knew it, I had a pieced quilt top.
Jackie quilted a great pattern called Dusty Miller across it and turned it into a sweet baby quilt:
I used this sweet polka dot piece on the back. It shows Jackie's pretty quilting beautifully:
It is bound with a Moda Marbles brown (I think), and although a brown binding isn't very exciting, I think it's the perfect frame for this little quilt:
And no, these pictures were not taken on the ranch. I made another trip to Texas recently and along the way, I scouted out a spot to snap a few photos as I drove through my beloved Hill Country:
I'm going to call it Rocky Rail Fence. Diamonds are rocks and I took the pictures in the rocks and it's about as creative as I'm going to get today:
This one will be going to a new baby who hasn't arrived yet. It ended up being 38" x 50" once it was washed and properly crinkled.
I love it and I get to cross another UFO off of my list. :) I know I'll be making more using this pattern. It's a super quick pattern and makes a really cute baby quilt. I have a few I need to whip up for a big baby shower. I saw that Sew Cal Gal had posted about a baby shower at 29 Palms for expectant Mamas who's husbands were deployed. I'm going to send a couple of quilts so that's up next. In fact, I had better go check on that. I hope I'm not too late!
I'm linking up with Michelle over here for week 10 of Let's Make Baby Quilts. She's making 50 this year!
