Baby Sawyer was born yesterday!

Posted by Pam Quiltaholic Biswas on 20 August, 2014 at 16:20

Baby Sawyer, the second child of some friends of mine, was born yesterday, a couple of days early, but that was a blessing to my dear friends who we anxiously awaiting his arrival.  

I wanted to make Sawyer a quilt and since I have known about this for at least six months, you would think I had already finished it.  But, no, I had other things in the works and I did not start this quilt until Saturday night, yes, August 16.  Actually, I might have started a few days earlier cutting squares of fabric for the quilt.  

I enjoyed the quilt I made from Emma's Garden using HSTs so I decided to do this one the same.  They are so versatile.

For Sawyer's quilt, I cut out 9.5" squares from all my fabrics which included most of Riley Blake's Fun & Games by Lori Whitlock.  Here are a few of them.



I added a few others from Art Gallery in blues and grays from Oval Elements collections.  

Sawyer's room is decorated in blues, grays and a hint of aqua.  

I matched a light and dark square with the help of Rebekah and started sewing all the squares around the four sides.  I finished this by Sunday night.  On Monday, I cut each sewed pair on the diagonals.  Then I discovered the Bloc-Loc Rulers.  I used a 6.5" square to trim all the HSTs down to 5.5"  These rulers are excellent if you want accurate HSTs.  You can find them here.

I cut out 72 HSTs from the squares and proceeded to design a quilt for Sawyer.  It only took a few hours Tuesday evening to put the blocks together.  I quilted it and machine bound it Wednesday morning.  I'm ready to go meet Sawyer and present him his quilt.  Here's the front and the back as well.  


Well, that's a great accomplishment for me today.  I'm almost ready to see the new arrival.    

There are just a couple more days before I draw a winner of the Emma's Garden bundle, so if you did not already comment, check out the post before this one and comment to win.  Drawing is Friday at 5 pm CST.
