Thanks to everyone who participated in the give-away! I enjoyed reading all your comments on what you have been up to over the past weekend (and all your nice comments about the fabric and Carter). A surprising number of you were getting to quilt, so that’s great! Soon, one of you will be getting another reason to quilt – as this Fat Quarter pack will be arriving at your doorstep!
That lucky winner is: Wendy T!!!

Yesterday I was lucky enough to get another quilt finished with this fabric. Carter took two nice naps in the studio with me, so I could get the binding sewn on.
I will admit that my binding is totally machine done and that is part of the reason it is finished. If I have to choose between hand-stitching my binding and holding my baby, I am gonna pick the baby!
I love the way the red letters just POP on the brown.
I also love the backing . . .
This pattern is from my “Little Quilts 4 Little Kids” book. You may remember when I showed you the original versions from the book ~
As you can see, this pattern doesn’t have to be a name quilt – Just change the name into one of your favorite sayings! (tho these fabrics would work for a little girl too, don’t ya think?)
You can find several different fonts for making your own letters under my Tutorials tab.
You can find the kits for this quilt here. (By the way, the kit will include the words, full size and ready to trace.)
