You know what 12 year old boys loooove to do? Hold up a quilt for their Mom in front of the High School after a visit to the Orthodontist at 8 am. ;)
He’s a great quilt holder!
I came home from Quilt Market in May with the cutest bundle of Lola Dutch fabrics by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller fabrics. I wanted to use just the fat quarters for the quilt, so I decided on a One Way quilt in all prints.
I love her illustrations, and this collection is as cute as ever. It’s well curated on it’s own, but I added the green and pink polka dots.
I added in some scrappy blocks here and there to use up every bit of fabric I had and make this one a little bigger (I added one more block to each row, and one more row than the crib size in the pattern).
I quilted it with good ol’ loopty loops (here is a tutorial for how I free motion quilt).
I made these loopty loops a little larger than normal since I had my 3 year old “helping” me. 3 year old’s are super helpful in the sewing room!
I love the way this one turned out. Can you spot the few scrappy blocks I added and the scrap of blue binding I had to add? ;)
Fabric is Lola Dutch by Michael Miller fabrics. It just started shipping to stores, but I found it here, and here.
This quilt is beautiful!! Love all the pretty fabric pieces in there – and how they are showcased in this pattern.
Love your quilt. Perfect balance of colors. I will have to add this one to my never ending list of quilts to do!
Thank you! The fabric collection did all the color work for me!
My favourite is the scrappy block and the binding with small blue!
Me too! Thanks!
As always, Allison, this is adorable!!
This pattern is so perfect for this fabric collection! It’s such a cheerful quilt.
That’s super cute! I can’t imagine even trying to sew with a three year old, so I’m impressed you got any quilting done at al! I just moved and we installed a dutch door on my sewing room so I can lock my twin almost-three-year-olds out and sew but still be available. Fingers crossed it helps. Right now, they just pull a chair over to the door to see better, haha.
Oh man…I can’t even imagine twin almost 3 year olds! So much work at this age but so much fun too!
I am in love with your Lola Dutch One Way quilt!!! So inspirational!!
Thank you Susie!
