Groovy Crib quilt top done!

or maybe the title of this post should be attack of the photo bomber.

So apparently the floor is not the ideal place for photo taking. So I just put it up on my 'design wall' (batting thumbtacked to the wall).

I really liked working on this. The curves were a little tricky and I ended up using my Retro Flowers templates instead of the cardstock templates I cut out from the pattern. I also did a log cabin approach to the piecing instead of how the pattern was written. I really loved putting it together, so much fun. This is the first quilt I've made using all solids and it's so satisfying piecing cause it's so crisp and clean. 
I'm looking forward to quilting it...I think I'm actually going to try and do it myself on my itty bitty sewing machine *gasp* We shall see. 
Now on to the king size. ;)...first I have to get my 3x6 Quilt Bee blocks completed though. 


  1. Your quilt top looks great! I am using the retro flowers template & doing it in blocks as well - glad to know you're ahead of me and it worked out!! Have fun with the quilting :)

    1. Thanks! Definitely liked using the acrylic templates over the cardstock, they give you a little more wiggle room if you're new to sewing curves (which I am). Looking forward to seeing your quilt. :)

  2. It looks great! I totally think you should quilt it yourself on the home machine you can do it!! Can't wait to see what you do with the king :)
