Seamus' Quilt

This is a very belated baby present to a kid who is now over 3 months old. Oops...


I used a pattern called Venetian Dream from Fons & Porter Easy Quilts, Fall 2009 issue. I made a bunch of modifications, including leaving out the outer border and decreasing the number of squares. I love how it looks finished, but unfortunately this was quite a project because there are no shortcuts to piecing the squares (e.g., no sew-three-strips-and-cut-across to make magic like some other fun patterns). So, it took a lot of attention and many many little seams.

The prints I used for the big panels are from the Frolic line by Wendy Slotboom (which I ordered from Fabricworm, although it seems they are all out). I love the squirrels!! The spaceships and other little squares are from my stash and alas, I don't remember their origin. The gray solid and border (which is pale yellow with teensy white polka dots) are from Purl, bien sur.

There are more details of the individual squares and their super cute fabrics here.

It's lovely. And it's fine, they are not allowed to sleep with blankets at this age anyway ;-)
