I have a lot of fabric designer crushes. Sarah Jane happens to be one of those! When I saw this intro to her new fabric line, I knew I had to have some! I only ordered one print because I wanted to fussy cut the adorable designs to make them the center of my main blocks. Then I had to decide how I would finish those blocks. One of my favorite quilt makers of all time is Rita of Red Pepper Quilts. She posted this tutorial in 2009 that I had wanted to use for a while, so this was the perfect opportunity!

Next I wanted to make another overall design within the quilt, so I drafted (on my trusty graph paper) a few different options. I ended up with a simple block, the hourglass. I currently have one quilt top all together! I'll show you all the finished project when they are both done (twins are a lot of work already), or when one is quilted and bound. Each quilt has 84 blocks I think, and each of the 22 bordered blocks have 17 pieces each. Then the other 22 have 4 pieces each. That math is 374+88=462! And that seems like a lot of parts in just a crib sized quilt. Maybe that's why I'm dragging my feet to assemble the second one!
