Two fabrics and a quilt

I've been working hard on the 4 OT quilt for my niece, and I wanted to show you my progress. This is the original pattern...
And while I love the color combinations that Carrie used, I wanted to make a bright, 30's repro version. I got some of the blocks sewn together the other day...
 As you can see, the top and bottom rows weren't together, nor were the ends of each row. But I've gotten that done and now I'm in the process of sewing all seven rows together. The home stretch!! I like how the big pink and yellow stars are popping out!

I went to a local quilt shop today...I'm running dangerously low on Best Press so I needed to restock.
I didn't find anything else there that I wanted. I can rarely find fabric there anyway. But that's okay, when I got home, this was waiting for me in the mail!
I had reserved the book at the library and it was ready for pickup today, coincidentally. Mason asked for a new quilt, so we picked the Wee Folks fabric out together. Isn't it cute?
Green Fairy Quilts has awesome prices, by the way, and very reasonable shipping! The Bunny Hill layer cake will be for one of a couple baby quilts I'm making soon.
So when I get some time later, I'm going to sit down with the book and pick out some patterns! Can't wait! Have a happy day! Don't forget to enter my giveaway on yesterday's post!

  1. Oh Jen. That quilt is GORGEOUS!! I just love it! I love Wee Folks too and debating getting of the line. I may get a couple of charm packs and just make a tote for myself.

  2. The quilt is beautiful, I love the colors you chose. I am inspired. I have been thinking about the quilt I have planned for my grandson and not started and then I come home and read your post. I will have to get at it.

  3. Jen, I adore the quilt for your niece! I have the pattern myself but have yet to make it. The fabrics you chose are gorgeous!
    I love all your goods you received in the mail! Don't you just love opening up the packages!
    Have a good weekend!

  4. What is your secret to those angled corners!! I avoid them like the plague, but want to do a star quilt sooo badly!!!

  5. I'm commenting again because I know I commented before... I love this quilt! I may have to make it for myself or Amelia.

  6. Wow, what a gorgeous quilt! Love the fabrics you used, it looks so different from Carrie's. Love it!

    Thank you so much for always leaving such sweet comments and being a bright spot in MY day. :-)
