Quite Contrary Lone Star Baby Quilt

We made a trip to town last Thursday to get a load of horse feed and calf manna and I made a detour to see Jackie. :) She had 2 quilts ready for me to take off her hands.That leaves 7 there, but I have 2 more ready to take to her so I don't know if that counts as progress or not. :)

This baby quilt was first up in the binding que:



Yes, another star using Amy Smart's tutorial for a Lone Star Baby Quilt. :) Jackie turns my little pieced tops into such pretty quilts with her quilting magic:


I seem to be on a roll with baby quilts, but my supply has been depleted and the babies keep arriving! I chose a pink from my stash for binding:



And a sweet baby girl will be cuddling with this one in a few weeks:



I  think I'm making a dent in this Quite Contrary fabric:


I don't remember how much I bought about 6 years ago at a San Antonio quilt shop, and I still think it's darling, but I'll be glad when I've used it all and you probably will too because there are more quilts to come. :)

Some fabrics seem to never run out, don't they? : )
Cute baby quilt. I pinned the instructions, but I have yet to make it.

I might have to give this pattern a try as we have a little grandgirl coming in September!

Lisa...that's just around the corner - Congratulations! I think you'll be making lots of wonderful things - it's so fun to sew for babies. This little quilt comes together quickly and it's pretty in every fabric.

That is one of my favorite ones that you've done in that pattern. Especially like the colors of the star and the backing fits perfectly. I'm not tired of seeing it appear in your quilts. :)

Great Quilt! And yes - that is progress for you!! My client brought me 3 - I finished 1 quickly for her ( baby shower) , she picked the 1 up and left 3 more - as a quilter - You LOVE it when that happens ;-) So I am sure she is happy!!! ;-)
