Vintage Modern Baby Quilt

A few weeks ago, my friend had a darling baby girl. 

Of course I jumped at the chance to make a quilt with my stash of Vintage Modern fabric. I made it using 2 mini charm packs which are squares that are pre cut to be 2.5x2.5 inches instead of the regular 5x5 inch squares. I also used a white jelly roll and cut up some squares (2.5x2.5 as well) to lighten up the quilt and then added some borders.... I loved how it turned out! So simple, but so cute!

I honestly love this color combo so much! DARLING!

I am still working on getting my hand quilting straight so don't look too close!

I have quite the stash of this lovely fabric... Now I just gotta come up with some more fun ways to use it! 
What are some of your favorite fabrics that are hiding in your stash??


  1. Ok, we seriously have the same taste in fabric... I wanted to use this so bad for the zig zag quilt, but the other matched my living room! Love how it turned out, especially the borders! You always do such a great job!

    I love the quilt. What is the completed size? I like to sew squares together to make pillow covers.

  3. Gorgeous! I am making a quilt for my niece out of this fabric. I think it is Moda Ruby collection.

    Love your quilt!

  4. A for Absolutely Beautiful.. I love this pattern and the colors are just wonderful. Great job!

  6. such a cute, cute baby quilt! lucky baby who gets to keep it :)

  8. I love this quilt. It is absolutely gorgeous.I'm a beginning quilter and would love to make this for my sister's new arrival. Do you have any additional instructions on how to make this? Thank you!!


  9. Beautiful! I am also working on a quilt with this lovely fabric!!!

  10. I made a quilt using this fabric combined with Moda's Ruby.

  11. Could you please give clearer instructions? This is perfect for my soon to be born granddaughter, Alexandra! And where do I get the material? Forgive me but it's been years since I did a quilt.

  12. I would love to make a quilt like this, however I am a beginner quilter! :) Can you tell me approximately what size your quilt is? How much fabric do I need for the borders and backing? Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated!


  13. I want that border fabric. Can you tell me where to get it or the name of it or something? It is not the Moda Ruby as someone suggested. It is beautiful as is your quilt!

  14. Stash favs: all things Bonnie & Camille!
    Your checkerboard quilt is darling and the quilting is so sweet.
    So..... perhaps I will use some of my B&C Vintage Modern stash ;)
