Finally, a quilt!

I’m realizing it has been a little while since I’ve shown actual pictures of a recent quilt.
I love this little boy quilt – my favorite pieces being the Heather Ross Fireflies fabrics including the dogs and the border stripe. The back is more of the tangerine mini-dot. This was another fun quilt to use up more of my orange and blue and brown collection. The quilting was done by a friend, Becky Heslop.
I made this quilt about a month ago a long with a couple of kits for the etsy shop. I had intended to write a post about it linking to the items but they are already gone! They found really nice homes, however, so I am very pleased. In fact, the quilt went to a nursery for a new baby boy and you have to check out his big sister’s room here. So sweet!
Last week I finished a big commission project for a king-size top made up of 6″ squares. It took a while! And I was reminded why I like making baby quilts so much. A much faster turn-around time! You get to move on to the next project/idea/pile of fabric so much quicker. So more baby quilt pictures to come this week!

    I really love your fun colors and love the extra border around the squares. It adds that little extra touch. I look forward to seeing more quilts this week.

    Cute colors. I instantly thought of Fall (oranges & browns) when I saw it, but after seeing the close-up picture, it's definitely a little boy quilt!

    What a lovely quilt…I love the colors and the squares. The bubble quilting is wonderful and so perfect for the quilt to soften all the squares. Thanks for sharing!

    Cute! My boss is currently collecting Heather Ross for her baby’s quilt. I turned her into a Ross junkie and she’s not even a quilter!

    Amy, <br />I must say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this sweet quilt and I know my soon-to-be-here Hudson will love it too. The colors, design, quilting – it is all amazing, but the one thing you can’t get from the pics is how amazingly SOFT this quilt is!!! As I mentioned before, it is perfect in his nursery and was the "missing link" to the room’s design. Hopefully soon I’ll have pictures of his
