Oh baby, baby!

Some dear friends recently added a baby boy to their family. And when I saw this quilt made up in a local quilt shop I just couldn’t resist making it for them. The fabric is just SO stinkin’ cute! And it reminds me of my roots, growing up on a farm in Iowa.
The fabric is from Studio E and called Farm Friends. The center of the quilt is a book panel that is cut apart and sashed with coordinating fabric. The pattern is free. I couldn’t find it on the Studio E web site but did find it over at Fabric Depot.
The way that the sashing is cut to frame the book panels is goofy. It wastes some extra fabric. But it works. I recalculated the math so that it didn’t waste so much fabric. In addition, the shop where I purchased the kit gave extra yardage beyond the pattern requirements. So much so that I was able to piece it all together for the backing. I love the back as much as I love the front! And look! There is a black “Charlie” cat in the story that is making me grin.
