Nora Kate was born a few weeks ago and made our friends grandparents - again. Her big brother (Grampa's Little Genius) is two years old, so he was probably ready for a baby sister. And, naturally, she needs a quilt.
I had a "Just A Speck" layer cake by Moda that I thought would be fun to work with. I used all the squares with white dots to make a disappearing four-patch. The Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial was all the pattern I needed!
I started by cutting the 10" squares into 4 pieces each and making four-patches with Kona white.
Once I cut up each of the blocks .....
..... and put them back together in a different arrangement they looked like this.
At least I thought it was dark pink until I got it home in a different light. Now I'm thinking it might be red.
Either way, it works.
Last but not least, some clip art and hand embroidery, and a label is made!
