PBS Fabrics Herringbone Baby Quilt

Image

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 Painters Palette Solids
White, Crimson, Tomato, (2 rows) of Lipstick, Verbena, and Salmon

It is all very easy to make! One sheet makes 10 HST’s  and they are perfect! If you don’t want to use a Jolly Bar (5”x10”) then  find a nice Layer Cake (10”x10”)
I used Anagram by Kimberly Kite with the Ruby Star Society  (For a different look) and cut it in half (5”x10”)
You will need a background fabric which you  can cut your own to (5”x10”) or use a solid Jolly Bar
Bella Solid Jolly Bar

Put the 2 fabrics right sides together  and a sheet on top!  Pin to keep them from moving and sew on the lines!

Eighteen years ago today the United States of America was attacked by Terrorist!
I pray we never forget the people who where murdered! The Heroes who have died from the dust and fires that day!
Never Forget the First Responders, the families, the are still suffering! Keep these people in your prayers!
I watch Americans elect people who seem to hate us and our values  be elected to Congress and the Senate!
It is a scary time in America!
Praying for Americans! Lisa
