The Anne Quilt – From the Fat Quarter Baby Book! (book review)


I’m already of fan of all the It’s Sew Emma books (they are delightful to read and easy to use), so ‘Fat Quarter Baby’ fits right into my collection.

The book contains 20 baby quilts – 10 named after girls and 10 named after boys.

My quilt is the first of the 10 ‘girly’ quilts and it features the classic churn dash block in a clever new arrangement. 


As you can see, I decided to see what would happen if I switched the light and dark fabrics in my quilt. For the churn dashes and the borders I used ‘Tiger Stripes’ in 4 different colors (Alexia Abegg for Cotton + Steel). The background is a couple navy blue prints also from Cotton + Steel.

I quilted it with an all over meandering design – can you see the hearts I ‘drew’ in? This quilt is meant for a baby, after all. Why not sew some love into it?

There are so many adorable quilts in Fat Quarter Baby – I can’t wait until I need to use it again!
