Sweet Savannah

I am working on an "unscheduled" baby quilt! A friend requested that I make a quilt for a baby girl whose name will be Savannah. Who can resist a sweet baby girl named Savannah? So, my name for this quilt is "Sweet Savannah".

Two Strips Made Last Night:



I found a cute pattern and tutorial by Crazy Mom Quilts on the Moda Bake Shop website, called Stacked Coins Baby Quilt. This quilt is going together extremely quickly. I cut out the rectangles and sewed two of the five strips in about an hour last night. I hope to make two, and possibly three more of the strips tonight.

The pattern calls for 5 inch charm packs. I had some of these in my stash and pulled all the pink ones from them. Then I cut 5 inch squares from other pink floral fabric that was in my stash. So, if you don't have the charm packs or don't want to go to that expense, its very easy to make your own 5 inch squares. The 5 inch squares are cut in half to make the rectangles in the strips. Easy!!!

Rectangles to be sewn into more strips:

LOVE this! I've seen the stacked coins pattern before, and it looks easy enough to piece. I'm still waiting to plunge into the quilting part, though!

Such pretty fabrics. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt. (I just popped over from Happy Cottage Quilter.)

I'm particularly fond of pink quilts. Sweet Savannah is going to love it!
