This snappy little baby quilt reminds me that sometimes simple designs and fabrics can have the greatest impact.

A sampler quilt, of a sort! This past winter, I set out to make a baby quilt out of strips of different patterns-- a fair isle quilt. I took inspiration from horizontal patterns in quilts as well as sweaters.
I also dove into a stack of fabrics I'd been hoarding from Cloud 9 fabrics based on Goodnight Moon. Those kittens and mittens!

How did I let this stack of blocks languish in my sewing cabinet for so long (years)? I'm not sure what I was waiting for, but earlier this winter I pulled out blocks accumulated from a few rounds of the 3x6 and 4x5 quilting bees.

Earlier this fall, I dove into my linen scraps that my friend Lynn at South Street Linen gave me to play around with. I've used some of her fetching hand-printed linen before, but this time I decided to use exclusively linen for the quilt top instead of mixing it with quilting cotton.
