Six months ago, you would have found me sketching, calculating, and testing pattern blocks for my newly released Gooseberry patterns. I typically make a couple tester blocks for each pattern--mainly to verify my math is correct. Rarely do I have enough time to test a full quilt since--well, there just aren't enough hours in the day. But today, you get to meet a cute little exception to that rule.
This sweet pint-sized version of my Shuffle quilt pattern was made with Mixologie fabric by Studio M for Moda. I quilted it with a whole bunch of crazy, free-motion loops.
Because I made it for a baby gift, I made a few changes that I wanted to share with you in case you'd like to make your own baby Shuffle. For this Mixologie version, I made 20 blocks (instead of 42) and arranged them into 5 rows of 4. It finished at 44 x 55". I only needed 3 yards of back fabric and 6 strips 2-1/2" x WOF for the binding.
Of course, if you want to make one a little bigger, you can make 30 blocks and arrange them into 6 rows of 5. It should finish at 55 x 66" and you will need 3-3/4 yards of back fabric and 7 strips 2-1/2" x WOF for the binding.
Now if you could just see how absolutely adorable the new owner of the quilt is. ;)
