Pattern Description:

When our granddaughter, Belen, transitioned from the nursery to her "big girl" room, I made her this quilt. I used a jelly roll from It's A Hoot by MoMo for Moda, which gave me a great assortment of strips to use. It was such a fun project and Belen loves her quilt!

Since then, I have used this pattern several times to make both twin and baby quilts. I love how you can use the same pattern, but each quilt looks totally different with the varied color and fabric schemes. You can also add an optional applique using a motif from your fabric. The pattern includes instructions for both twin and baby size quilts.

It is a basic pattern that is great for a beginner quilter, although more experienced quilters will also appreciate how quickly this pattern comes together. I include suggestions for quilting and finishing the quilt and hope you will try it out!
