On our recent trip thru New England, I came across a quilt shop in Maine called Bolt. I believe it was in Cornish, Me. I thought these would be cute for a baby quilt for my granddaughter on the way due in February. The near solids are Fairy Frost. The prints are Timeless Treasures, Babes in Farmland. There is one more print with little chicks and then a border print. I have ordered more, hopefully enough. Saw the cutest quilt on Facebook, was simply squares with circles appliqu├ęd. I thought I saved a picture of the quilt and the lady that made it, but can't find it now.

So that is the plan, a baby quilt using fairy frost for the background and these darling prints for the circles. Plan to make the background 8" squares and the circles 6".

Also made a stop at Keepsake Quilting in Center Harbor, New Hampshire.

I will be going to White Oak in a couple of weeks for the Quilters of SC Piecable Retreat ad taking a class being taught by Linda Knutson titled "The Low Country Sampler" that involves applique, English Paper Piecing and machine piecing. I am looking forward to the class, learning new techniques and being around women who love quilting as much as me.

While at Keepsake Quilting, I purchased the fabric for the project. Got it all washed and pressed today and so happy with my choices. Debating on the bottom two fabrics on the left for the outer border.

Don't you just love having new fabric to play with?

Thanks for stopping by,

Those fabrics are just adorable and will make a sweet baby quilt! Sounds like a fun trip. We went to New England 3 years ago for our 50th anniversary and also went to Keepsake Quilting - plus numerous other quilt shops! What fun!
