Tiny Quilt #5: A House-Warming Quilt

My brother and sister-in-law just bought their first house.  Moving just a few weeks before their baby is due couldn't have been easy!  I was thinking about them a lot as they got settled and assembled all of the baby furniture.  

My favorite way to think of someone is to make them a quilt.

It was a great chance to make another tiny house block from Elizabeth Hartman's Modern Patchwork.   And to use some of the fabrics from the Modern Quilt Guild's Madrona Road Challenge.  I love these fabrics - they're so playful and sweet!

One of my goals for 2013 is to practice some more free-motion quilting patterns.  Santa Clause brought me some great books about it!  In this tiny quilt I tried some swirls, a flower, and writing the family's name in cursive.

The countdown is on - this baby is coming soon!
