Sweet Pea and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  Autumn has definitely arrived, and we've been spending as much time as possible outside during these glorious days, before the inevitable cold, gray winter.  Between soaking up the crisp air and watching football, it's been tough to make myself sit in my studio and sew.  This fast little baby quilt has been the perfect project for sewing in short bursts. I finished this one in short order, and it was wonderful to get it done so expediently.  

In case you missed my last post, this quilt uses an easy variation on a traditional Antique Tile block, and you can find the tutorial HERE.  To keep it nice and soft, I quilted this one with a wide stipple, which will still give it plenty of crinkly texture when it's washed and dried.

I used up all the leftovers on the back, and it always feels great to make a quilt without purchasing fabric.  Since I keep a bolt of Kona White at all times, this entire quilt was made from stash!  

I was even able to get enough strips for a scrappy binding!  

This one is named Sweet Pea, and it's for our newborn niece.  It will be making the trip to Oklahoma with my father-in-law in a couple of weeks when he visits them.

Before we party, let's check out a few highlights from last week!  This color gradient stunner was shared by Rebecca Grace Quilting-

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. I love the way you use up what you have for the backing and binding. I'm sure the quilt is going to be well loved and what a perfect name for it and your new niece. :)

  2. I get a thrill out of piecing my backs and using up scraps or stash in the process! Here's a virtual fist bump for using what you had on hand to make something beautiful!
