a sweet quilt

sweet quilt
This is a little quilt that I designed for the Moda Bakeshop.

It measures 45" x 54". I consider that a baby quilt, but it could also be used for a lap quilt.

I like the busy prints all crammed together. And the tumbler shapes make it look complex, but it really is easy peasy. Just the way I like it. :)

The tutorial is here.

This is absolutely adorable - I can't wait to do this!

jo said...

Wow!! Love the quilt. Actually I discovered your blog through the bake shop some time ago and boy am I glad I did. I want to make so many of your quilts. I love that you are down to earth and not a quilt snob...Keep up the great work...

very cute!! thanks for the tutorial!!!

Laura said...

I LOVE this one!! I will definately be making it soon! After I finish all my other WIP quilts!

Strlady said...

I caught a peek at this one over at the Bake shop and immediately thought, I can make this! You made it seem very easy. I'll send you a pic if I go ahead and make it. Maybe for one of the Baby quilts I need to make for this month.

It still amuses me to see the same fabrics pop up all over the world... I just recently bought some of those in a small shop in Norfolk, England. I loved the one with the birds in outline and have been wondering what to make (probably a quilt for the cat!)

Allie said...

Great quilt! I'm adding this to my list of things to try sometime!

Bowlby said...

Very nice! I'm putting this on my to-make list for sure. You make it look very easy!

jabeybaby said...

Very cute!

Wendy said...

Love the polka dot binding! I've been thinking of doing a coin quilt, do you think this pattern would work if every other 'row' was a solid?

nicolette said...

Sooooo cute!

The quilt is on my list!

Amy - Park City Girl said...

I left you a comment at mbs too - such a cute quilt! I love the tumblers and charms are a great way to get them easily :)

KZK said...

I love that! Off to check out the tute - thank you!

wendy,

i think that would be a fun look, too! i think you should give it a shot. maybe you could make the solid rows just a touch narrower than the pieced block rows? just a thought...

Aimee said...

So pretty!! congrats on another MBS entry!

Cristin said...

REALLY lovely! Looks easy enough!

Sarah said...

I love this quilt--I am a beginner, but this looks very managable. I have made several quilt tops, but I have not sandwiched them or quilted them yet (this seems a little scary to me). I like how you just outlined each patch--do you sew around one and cut the thread and then start on the next one? What would be the best way for me to start quilting my quilts? Thanks--I'm kinda learning by myself and reading peoples blogs.

carol said...

Super darling quilt, Amandajean!!! Maybe you should have a sew-along with this cutie?? Just think of all the different fabrics that could be used. It'd make a great Christmas throw too.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Very cute Amandajean!!

Mama Pea Quilts said...

Don't the reds in this quilt just make it "pop"?! Even though we might like to attempt something more complicated now and then, it's nice to know that a simple quilt can be so attractive.

Lise said...

Beautiful. I love the colors; I'm in the midst of a turquoise/red quilt for my daughter. I love your red polka-dot binding; may have to borrow that for mine. :-)

Cheryl Arkison said...

I didn't even notice the shapes until you mentioned them. I first thought it was a simple charm quilt. Nice change!

badlandsquilts said...

perfect fabric choice for the design!

Erin said...

Oooo, I'm going to have to check your pattern out! I just finished making a Zig Zag quilt (ok, just the top) using your free tutorial and LOVED the way it turned out. It's on my blog if you want to take a peak. =)

Kerri said...

sooo sweet!! i can't wait to use my charm pack in this!! :)

angela said...

I love that you used the card from the charm pack to make the template. Great idea!

Leslie said...

i love this!!! very fun

Natalia said...

Very cute!

Goddess in Progress said...

Saw the tutorial this morning on MBS, and I love it! May have to get a few more charm packs of Hushabye and do this one for my friend's baby girl... Or maybe throw in some solids to stretch the dollar... Thanks for the tutorial!

em's scrapbag said...

Very cute indeed. Love all the happy fabrics.

Jackie said...

Saw it this morning on MBS! Great quilt, great tutorial!

I love your site and your quilts - such an inspiration to me as I am on a tight budget of $500 a year for fabric, thread and batting, scissors, mats, cutter and patterns. That is about $42 a month to spend. Learning about bleach muslin has really helped with the budget. Your tutorials are just great. Thanks Amandajean.

Sinta Renee said...

I love it! I would love to try making it... you promise, easie peasie?

Lara said...

This is just about the sweetest (no pun intended hehe!) little quilt around! Can't wait to make it!! Thanks Amandajean!

Lara said...

Oh blast - just realised I am one charm pack short... do you think it could be made out of 3 charm packs?? Just in case I can't manage to find another one online?? Any suggestions??

Trisha said...

Very cute!

Yvonne said...

Wow. This was a nice quilt.

Deb said...

I've always wanted to do a tumbler block quilt, but felt like it would be too tedious with a template---you've shown me how easy it can be! Thank-you!
Deb

Anina said...

Linda said...

Love it Amanda!

Bloom said...

Great quilt Amandajean! Love how you used the cardboard packaging as the template - too clever. Thanks for all the time you spent to make the tutorial available for us all.

Evelyn said...

It's really lovely! Thanks for taking the time to make the tutorial. You are so generous with your talents, and I hope you know how much we all appreciate it! :-)

I am trying so hard to get to sew but things keep getting in the way. Hopefully I can catch up with all of you soon. I will check the tutorial out.

Sarah said...

Oh Crazy Mom I love this quilt. It is just the wee ray of sunshine that I needed to see tonight. You are so clever and I love tuning in to your blog. I'm also loving the way that your blog is changing and shifting. It is such a gentle joy to visit.
Thankyou
Sarah

Ethne said...

Adorable - I love watching your work 'develop' and when you post photos of completed quilts etc. You are one very industrious woman

Annie said...

Crazy mama, you are amazing!!

Sara said...

You're so good.

Anonymous said...

Very nice tumbler block and a great way to use those charms.

paulette said...

How easy is that and so cute!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
Paulette

Nanci said...

It is fabulous. Very colourful and you know I love colour!
What is the back like? I am always having a hard time picking out the backs for quilts.And so many people fail to show the backs which makes a quilt what it is.

Thimbleanna said...

It's GORGEOUS CrazyMom! I LOVE it!!!

Gail :) said...

Love this line of fabric. Great little quilt too :)

Rebecca said...

Oh- I really like this!! I am going to have to pick up some charm packs!

Patricia said...

Hi Amanda Jean,

Love this quilt and I tried to print the tutorial. It would only print 3 pages which included the photo of the quilt, and the photo where you cut the template from the charm pack cardboard,and nothing else. Do you know of a way to print the whole tutorial?

You have a great website :)

Clair said...

I like it...and think I may try that pattern sometime.

Astyn said...

So I just found your site and I love it. I am sure to be coming here often for new ideas and help learning how to quilt. I hope to be as good as you someday!
Hooray for stay at home moms!

Kristin said...

What a neat quilt!

Kelli said...

I didn't see that that was you! I moved that quilt to the top of my to do list after I saw it on MB. I think I'm going to use the Happy Camper line from American Jane. Thanks for all the continued inspiration!

Kristi said...

I really like this quilt. It is a great example of how the fabric totally makes the quilt.

heather said...

i don't think that i left a comment the other day when i quickly looked at what you had going on. it turned out really well!! like it!!:)

Tessa said...

Nice quilt - I love how the red polka dot fabric seems to pull it all together :)

lera said...

Loving the binding. Another great quilt!

Katherine said...

Yum! The fabrics, the design and oh, the binding on this quilt are delightful. How do you do it? All these wonderful quilts. sigh. I love seeing each and every one.
