A couple of years ago I stumbled across this awesome book at my local public library. It was filled with simple fun baby gift ideas. Today I couldn't tell you the title of that book. I did end up purchasing a copy during a library sale fundraiser but haven't a clue where that book is now. Hopefully I will now be able to find the book!! I'm also certain it is storage with the rest of my crafting books. But that's off topic. Every time someone I know is pregnant or has a baby, I make the same baby quilt. The one I found in that book. It is super simple to make, uses limited fabrics and comes together quickly. Wanna know how to make this wonderfully easy gift? You're in luck! One of my co-workers down the hall just had a little boy with his wife and I just haven't had time to make their gift until now! You only need three fabrics to make this little quilt. It is a great early tummy time quilt. You'll need the following cuts of three fabrics for the quilt top: Fabric #1 and #2: 1/3 to 1/2 yard (depending on direction of print) Fabric #3: 2/3 to 3/4 yard The final front will look like this diagram: You will also need an additional 1 1/2 yards of one of the fabrics for backing. To create this quit top: Cut 14 5.5" by 5.5" squares from both Fabric #1 and Fabric #2 Cut 8 10.5" by 10.5" squares from Fabric #3. Pair up Fabric #1 and #2 and sew together with a 1/4" seam to create 14 total rectangles. Be sure to press each to the same fabric on all. To pair them up, I just sit each stack of blocks next to my machine and stitch away. I also do not snip the threads between each rectangle until I sew all 14 rectangles. Chain sewing like this creates a steady flow and also speeds things up. Take your 14 rectangles and match them up as show in the above diagram. Your seams should be pressed opposite of each other and butt up precisely. Sew these all together using chain sewing using 1/4" seam. You will end up with a total of 7 blocks. You will now take the Fabric #3 and match it up with the created blocks of Fabric #1 and #2. I generally pin a pairing of five to chain stitch these. Finally I add in my third block to each row to do a final round of chain stitching to finish the rows. After all of the rows are sewn, sew each row together. Do pay attention to the direction of your print and placement. You should end up with this: (Ignore the other quilt! I was too lazy to take it down before I took this picture!) For this quilt since the fabrics are so busy and I enjoyed the straight stitching so much with the last one, I did it again using my secret weapon: painter's tape! (Thank goodness for the Dollar Tree and $1 tape!) I have still binding to add but that's a post for another day! How's your sewing going? Love, Ashley

Scrap Spinning Flower Blocks Hello Dear Friends and Readers, I hope you are keeping well and staying inspired. Welcome to all our new readers. Using scraps is a lot of fun and makes it possible to create very individual blocks and quilts. Importantly, one can get into sewing something straight away, with what is already available. By the time you go shopping and come home , the moment has probably passed. It is nice to go with your inspiration and fabric you already have. By the way, when I do get any new fabric, I always wash it first.

Introducing the last 12 blocks in my Farmer's Wife Quilt Revival Classes! Class 12 offers 2 options...paper piecing or rotary cutting/modern piecing methods. There really is no easy way to complete the remaining 12 blocks other than paper piecing or using the templates provided on the CD in the back of your Farmer's Wife book. For those who already know how to paper piece, this may be your option choice...keeping 'true' to the entire Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. Option 2 uses modern rotary cutting/piecing methods. I have come up with 12 blocks that are NOT found in the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt, however stay true to the 'feel and look' of the original quilt. Plank Floor Tulip Bud Plow Windy Rabbit Hole Blueberry Basket Torch Light Shoo Fly Lemoyne Star Woman's Suffrage Egg Basket Hay Hook This is a secondary block made from Class 9, block 30. (Not included in Class 12 Instructions) For those who have been plowing their way month after month and familiar with my classes...these last rotary cut Farmer's Wife blocks will be very easy.
