A Quick, Sweet Baby Quilt and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  After the odyssey that was my Rainbow Galaxy quilt, I was so ready to sew something fast and easy, and baby quilts are always perfect for that.  We have a new niece, born a few weeks ago, so this one is for her!

Her mom LOVES purple and green together, so those two colors were a no-brainer, and I threw in a little bit of pink to give it extra sweetness.  I always like to make baby quilts that will grow with the child, so I always choose colors I think will work long past the baby stage.

This is made with a variation on a traditional Antique Tile block, and I published a little tutorial for it a while back.  You can find the block tutorial HERE.  This one will be finished up in short order and sent to my niece via my father-in-law, who is taking a trip to visit them soon!

As usual, last week's party was loaded with quilty eye-candy, like this lovely quilt finish by Rita at Quiltpiecer-

And this beauty by Debra at Robinson Row.  It really is a lovely pattern!  Love seeing different versions!

And finally, this stunner is by Linda at kokaquilts-
