sew & tell v3.26 a collaborative baby quilt

I've talked about my friend Brynn here before.  She is an excellent quilter!  Not only is she precise and accurate in her piecing but she has an amazing ability to start and finish projects rather quickly!  We've teamed up recently to make a few quilts for some friends who are having babies.  She cuts, pieces and bastes the quilts and then passes them off to me.  I quilt and bind them!  I think we make a great team - she does the part I drag my feet on (cutting) and I have a deadline to actually finish them! And I think you all know how I feel about having local friends with whom you can sew!

This is our latest!  Pardon the grainy instagram photos! I did take some others that I'll share later so you can see the cute back too.

Fabric: All-Star, Riley Blake
Quilting: Free motion stippling

What a cute quilt! The more I see quilts with white backgrounds,the more I wonder why I don't do more of that? It makes the colors pop so much.

I love to cut and piece but drag my feet on the quilting and binding. I need to find a partner like you!

This quilt is so adorable. Simple, but perfect -- and so much more MANAGEABLE than the behemoth projects I get mired down in. I've been really frustrated these last few days just with the walking foot straight stitching along seams in my giant quilt. It's really just too big for me and way beyond my skill level. So when I see this cute little baby quilt, I can't help but think that it would be so much more fun and more rewarding to work on something that size, and instead of tearing my hair out and feeling frustrated maybe I'd be enjoying myself and getting BETTER at quilting!

Also, totally jealous that you have a local quilting buddy to come over and play with fabric with you.

I love this quilt! This is a pattern I'm dying to try. So simple, but so effective and CUTE.
