“Baby Quilts (2010)” by Fons & Porter will be coming to newsstands near you toward the end of the month. I received my complimentary copies last week. The magazines come with CD’s containing the 2009 Baby Quilts in digital form. So, you are really getting TWO copies of the magazines:
In it are my Jungle Jim and Jane baby quilts!!! This is my first feature in a Fons & Porter magazine. I am super excited!!
These quilts are actually my first ever flannel project. The fabrics are from RJR‘s Baobab collection. I have a suspicion the adorable animals would make this line of fabrics a popular one. They are soft flannels made with brushed cotton:
I enjoyed working with them. I pressed my seams open throughout the piecing process, and that didn’t give me any problems. My points still matched up nicely.
The kits are available from Fons & Porter in the colorway of your choice. The main fabric for the snowball blocks is actually a border fabric. Border fabrics are not just for borders – they are fun to use somewhere else in quilts too! Keep that in mind the next time you don’t know what to do with a wide border print… the possibilities await you! :)
I didn’t get as much done over the weekend. So, I will have a bit of catching up to do. I’d better get going. I wish you a productive and lovely week.
