Baby Quilt for Chloe

While my family was all here visiting over Labor Day my mom, sister, and I worked together assembly-line style to piece this adorable quilt top for a long-time family friend of ours who's having a new baby soon.

My mom found this adorable sheep pattern in the June 2014 issue of The Quilt Life magazine (it's a pattern by Irene Berry) and we thought it would be great for a new baby.  I'm pleased to say the three of us knocked the top out in an afternoon-and-a-half and used all stash fabrics except for the background black and white.

My mom took it home to quilt on her long arm and recently sent me a snapshot of the finished quilt.  I loved the light rainbow binding, although it's kind of hard to see in the picture.  We weren't able to make it to the shower, but apparently Chloe loved it.  We also made this tooth pillow (the sheep head is an open pocket) for the new baby's older sister Blair.  She's only three (so a little young for losing teeth) but we wanted her to have something new and special too.

I love being able to do projects with my mom and sister, and it was fun to be able to work on this one.

Congrats to Chloe and Shawn!


  1. So cute! What is it about lambs that make them so appealing? I'm sure that mom and baby will love it.

  2. That is adorable; I agree that older siblings need something too!
