This is Sweet Beets – the pattern has a lap quilt, a queen bed scarf, in case you want a little pop of color on the bed but don’t want to make an entire quilt, and a coordinating pillow.
The design is inspired by the chioggia beet- when you cut into it, it looks a little like peppermint candy!
For the fabrics, I used some lovely organics from Birch Fabrics from their basics line.
And here it is in some rich fabrics from the Harmony line by Quilting Treasures.
Of course, you don’t have to follow my color scheme, you could make it in blues and greens…
or purples, greens and a pop of yellow…
My daughter Alyssa designed this one- Little Leaves.
Little Leaves has 2 sizes in it; a small crib and a child’s lap or bigger crib quilt. Isn’t it sweet? She made this one from some more organic fabrics from Birch Fabrics.
Aren’t the fabrics are adorable? Little chickens, rabbits, chicken wire… and the outer border is a fox- separated from the chickens and rabbits by the fence (I mean border!). Can’t let the fox get in the henhouse!
A little farmer humor.
For her Little Leaves quilt, Alyssa decided to cut out the leaves using a wavy rotary cutter and then stitch them to the quilt, leaving a little bit of the edges to curl up, like leaves do.
Little Leaves is easy to do- with 4 backgrounds and 4 leaf fabrics, it is fun to move the prints around until you have a design you like.
Oh- and just for fun, each pattern has a recipe inside! Yum!
