I was thrilled when Elise from Elise and Emelie asked me to make a project from her fabulous new book called Patchwork Gifts. (affiliate link)
Today is my stop on the book tour, and if you listen to my podcast, then you know I’ve been talking about this book for weeks! It’s overflowing with adorable projects that, of course, you could give as gifts–but I bet you just might want to keep a few for yourself.
Patchwork Gifts is bound to be a go-to resource for when you want a fun, quick project. You’ll find: a pincushion, coaster, mug rug, trivet, snack bags, zipper pouch, lunch tote, table topper, and a baby quilt–just to name a few!
I decided to make the Scrappy Triangle Baby Quilt. It was such a fun, quick project. Need a last-minute baby quilt? This one is perfect. You can use scraps or yardage–but it calls for 42 squares to make the triangles. And you know what has 42 squares? A charm pack!
I finally put to use my long-hoarded Little Ruby charm pack from Bonnie and Camille. I love the way it looks.
One thing that I love about the pattern is that the way the triangles are constructed, you will never lose your points. Genius!
It came together in just a couple of evenings. Pure, fun sewing. And aren’t baby quilts fun to quilt? The smaller size makes them so easy to maneuver.
I did an all-over paisley in the quilt center and a combo of straight lines and ribbon candy in the borders. And then bound it with some Bonnie and Camille scraps (don’t you love how all their fabric collections go together?).
I hope that you’ve been following along on the Patchwork Gifts Book Tour–there have been so many amazing projects by amazing makers!
