Sparks Baby Quilt

I finished a new baby quilt for some friends whose last name is Sparks.  It’s such a good last name, that I’m using it for the name of the quilt! This is another gender neutral one ’cause they are waiting to find out.

I love how this quilt came out.  It’s sort of a mini version of my Land & Sea Quilt.  I actually kept track of the measurements as I made this one, so I’m thinking I’ll post the pattern soon.

A fussy cut center of each block will be fun for the baby as he or she grows up!

    Very Very cute! I’m glad you kept track of the measurements, I always forget, and then the next time I want to make it again I have to figure it all out again, its a pain. I love all your different centers, Its like a way cuter version of an eye spy quilt. ANyways I love it, good job!

    I love this one! I love that whole line of Heather Ross fabrics, the Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries that the dogs came from. Those fabrics are softer than any other designer fabrics for some reason. I love the fish in bags and the loose fish. Anyway, anothe gorgeous quilt! This is my favorite blog! I gave you a shout out over on my blog, I hope that is ok. Thanks,

    This is cute as can be, and I think the baby will spend lots of time studying the little pictures on each block.

  18. Amy January 30, 2009 at 11:05 am #

    I love it! May I ask what the measurements of the blocks are and what the center of the block measures as well? Love the color scheme!

      Thanks Amy! I’m going to be posting the pattern soon so just keep an eye out for it and you’ll get all those details!

    Oh, good! I am so glad that you will be posting a pattern soon. I am eager to know your dimensions. I am working on something similar for my daughter’s new toddler bed. But I haven’t decided on the dimensions of the blocks yet. Thanks!

    thanks for the great pattern on this quilt. I have been meaning to ask you about the fabric on the white background, with the orange flowers. I saw a quilt you did also had that print in green. I saw it a few years ago, but never got it and now i can’t find it. Is it a Moda print? i can’t remember. let me know if you have any info. on it. that would be great! i will check back in the comments.
    thanks a ton!
