Sassy Sixteen, Crib Size

Today I finished the top of the baby quilt I'm making for my friend who is about to become a grandmother for the first time. She wanted a crib quilt for her house in pastels. I don't do pastels well so I had to add the rose color for some interest.

I used Kimberly Camou's pattern, Sassy Sixteen, and then found that it was really too big for a baby quilt so I took off one column and one row and now it is the perfect size (42" x 54"). Plus I have enough blocks left over for a second quilt. Here's the finished top. Just need to do the sandwich (groan) and the quilting. Does anybody out there like sandwiching and basting??? Or is it just me...



I used the fabric packs I got at the Old Country Store in Intercourse, PA. It's the Simplicity line from 3 Sisters for Moda. This top went together in just few hours. I'll definitely be using this pattern alot. Thanks Kimberly.

I can't imagine that anyone likes sandwiching and basting - well, I can at least testify that I don't! I love the Sassy Sixteen quilt and your fabric choice couldn't have been any better. Well done.

I don't like basting either. I love the fabrics for the SS, it is so pretty!

I have a friend who likes to baste and bastes all my quilts. She doesn't charge me but would like to make $s at it. Any idea what she should charge per size? She a grid about 3" apart over the whole thing.

Can you tell me the name of the first quilt on your slideshow. It's the one with strips on the outside with smaller strips around a center square on the block. I love it!
