PBS Fabrics Herringbone Baby Quilt

 I recently was offered opportunity to sew with
 Paintbrush Studio Fabrics Painters Palette Solid
to making a Herringbone Baby Quilt.

The company sent the fabric and it was 
like Christmas around here.
The PBS Fabrics wanted to highlight the
Painters Palette Solids collection but especially 
Lipstick which is rows 3 and 4 in the quilt below.
Painters Palette Solids Pantone color of the year!

The first thing I noticed where the colors 
bright, the fabrics soft, light weight, and sleek!
Perfect for a baby quilt or any quilt!

The colors included
White, Crimson, Tomato, (2 rows) of Lipstick, Verbena, and Salmon

The Herringbone Quilt Pattern
by Melissa Mortensen
(Link to free pattern)
It is a free .pdf pattern 
and has a great herringbone chart that I used.
It includes directions for making HST’s! 

But I found a wonderful way to make lots of perfect 
HST that once cut apart and sewn are 7” Half Square Triangles


This confused me so much I went and asked an advanced quilter!

Unfinished size - is the size when cut before sewn to anything else
Finished size - is the size of the individual HST after sewn into a block

I used straight line quilting to quilt!

Why we quilt!
To see the joy in your cousin’s eyes when you give her
the quilt you made for her new baby due in 6 weeks!

We are all ready to meet little Marlee!
I love how fast this quilt came together!
Create and be Unique!
