  1. Such a lovely Quilt, and I love the back, too!!! The quilting really adds another dimension to it and I Agree that this would be equally lovely for a boy or girl! 🙂

  2. I loved your quilt and appreciated you sharing the pattern and the process. I loved the backing and quilting designs chosen too! It is truly reversible.

  3. Oh my goodness, I love this quilt so much! I must get my hands on those fabrics. I’ve already copied your tutorial to my computer. It’s just scrumptious! Lovely!

  4. I love this fabric, love your quilt- diagonal lines look great! And I’m so glad you had navy and coral thread, it really looks great!

  5. Wow! You really did manage to show off the lovely fabrics so well! I love this collection. The blues and corals looks so lovely together. Wonderful job 🙂

  6. Beautiful quilt!
    Wonderful fabric gradation – my favorite color combinations.
    The back is such a treat to look at too!

  7. It looks great. Did you have any issues with the quilt top not ending up square after the diagonal quilting? And did you quilt them all in one direction or did you alternate the direction when quilting? (I mean did you turn the quilt around so that you started the next line of quilting on the edge that you finished the last line of quilting on)

  8. Love the pattern for a baby quilt. My daughters and nieces like patterns that lean toward the traditional but with an update. This is perfect. The fabric colors are very pleasing to the eye.
    Thanks for the chance to win as I have more than one quilt to make for the little ones!

  9. Kirsty this is a wonderful pattern to showcase fabric. I love the way you do colour graduation and your patterns are so detailed and well written.

  10. Love your new web design and this quilt is Gorge!! I think I like the back as much as the front. So lovely. I need to get back in quilting action. 🙂

  11. The back of your quilt is fabulous! The front showcases the fabrics, but the back just pops, and was well worth the time and agony you put into it in my opinion (although I wasn’t the one doing it, so I guess I would say that! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  12. I love the pattern, but discovered after ordering a fat quarter bundle from Hawthorne Threads that you can not cut four blocks 5.5 inches square from the 22 in side of the fat quarter. The fabric is exactly 22 inches wide, but once you cut off the salvage you are short one block by almost an inch. I was able to order another fat quarter bundle to complete my quilt. However, some people might nigh be able or want to invest in another $40 plus to complete the pattern.

    • Hi Donna, I’m sorry your fat quarter wasn’t fat enough! (Sorry, bad fat quarter joke). One other option to maximise your FQ is to cut your squares in a 3×3 configuration and then piece together the 10th square. Some people only want to cut ‘complete’ squares, (which could necessitate the need for more fabric) but if you’re comfortable with piecing that last one you can make it all fit.
      All the best and happy sewing!
