Work in Progress Wednesday :: Star Baby Quilts

Can you believe it? That pile of fabric last week actually turned into this! The miracle of it really is that we had two family birthdays last week also, which meant millions of cupcakes and cleaning for a party here on Saturday. Fun but busy. Even with all the busy-ness I was so excited to get this made.

I wanted a new baby quilt pattern and I found this one on Craftsy and immediately got sewing. This is a pretty straight forward pattern but I will say if you aren't familiar with the no-waste method of making flying geese you might find this tutorial more helpful than the pattern illustrations. I think it's a great pattern, I just needed a little more help with those :-)
I think they turned out beautifully and I LOVE all the new AMH Hand Drawn Garden prints. This was a great block to show them off, especially the large scale prints. And yes, I clearly have a favorite. Now to get it quilted - I asked for quilting advice on Instagram and got some great ideas, happy to hear any more if you have a good one!
Now on to the next version of this quilt with these fabrics - we were going for Americana, country and vintage as the feel for this one...what do you think? Prints for the stars, solids for the frames and the pearl bracelet for the large outer border. Denim for the back and a pop of red binding will make one sweet baby boy quilt (I think anyway).

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
