A little more Flock

There is a new tradition in our house; every time a new collection of my fabric arrives I make a quilt for Bee. With any luck Bee is going to end up with so many quilts she’ll never have to buy a blanket. Ever.

And of course Bee is always excited.

I love how Bee always has one question to ask when I finish a quilt, “Is it for me?” (I wish I could convey her tone of voice; it’s adorable.) And when I say yes her face just lights up; sometimes she even jumps up and down and spins around. I think we’ve raised this girl right.

So Flock has already entered into heavy rotation as one of her sleeping quilts.

Of course with one of Bee’s “animal pits” right next to her bed. She has an upstairs and downstairs animal pit, which is where she likes to hide. No matter how many times we’ve tried to tidy these animal pits, they quickly come back, so we’ve grown to love them…

Of all the Flock quilts I’ve made, this may be my favorite. It is really simple, but all together like this I love how the collection turned out, and the colors just really have that vibe of worn flannel that I’ve been striving for. Yay!!!

Hugs,
T

What size are the blocks for this quilt? Is there a specific pattern I can get for it? I am pretty new at this quilting thing, but getting better and NEED to make this quilt 🙂 LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE your work!!!!!

      It is easy peasy. It’s just 5″ squares and 10″ squares (that’s finished size). So cut them to 5.5″ and 10.5″. Placement is entirely arbitrary and it makes just about any fabric look good. It is another of my go-to baby quilt designs… So flattered by the love. Happy sewing, and please share whatever you make when you make it… http://www.flickr.com/groups/peartree/
