Oh Baby Oh!

Who can resist sharing a photo of a sweet baby lying peacefully on a quilt? Certainly not the quilter who created it! (The quilt I mean, not baby Hailey, who was created by friends of mine :-) )


It's the first quilt I've finished in quite some time now. The cheerful, bright fabric came from Moda's Oh Cherry Oh! line, a pre-cut "Turnovers" triangles pack. It's now out of print, as I learned recently when trying to find enough fabric for the border and backing. But E-beth Designs over on Etsy had the wonderful aqua zigzag print, which then inspired the zig-zag quilting. A quick, easy project that couldn't be simpler or cuter!

My shiny new Ikea pizza wheel made marking the quilting lines a breeze. With a 24" ruler, I just ran the pizza wheel where I wanted to quilt. This produces a nice straight crease that lasts long enough for quilting, with no need to mess with masking tape or worry about washing out marking pen/pencil.
