My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Scrumptious – Layer Cake Love

Happy Wednesday!

Spring is almost here, and time to bring out the spring décor!

My friend is welcoming a new granddaughter in June and requested a baby quilt in bright colors and florals.

After going through my stash, she and I decided on my Scrumptious layer cake by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. 

Scrumptious is an older collection made up of beautiful whimsical florals in bright pink, reds, orange, green and aqua.

We decided on the zipper quilt patten by Missouri Star Quilt Company.  You can watch the tutorial for this quilt pattern here.

I cut the layer cake into 4 charm packs. I used a little over one 5-inch pack to piece the baby quilt top. She wants Minky on the back of the quilt, I am out of pink Minky so I will order some soon.

With the remaining charms I made a couple of table runners.

The inspiration for the first table runner is also from a Missouri Star Quilt Pattern – Tulip Time. I added my own spin to their pattern by adding machine embroidery to the center and using a pieced border around the entire runner.

The second runner I used the churn dash / Greek cross quilt block, another one of my favorite blocks, it’s very versatile and offers a strong impact depending on fabrics used.

I was going / hoping for a spring Easter look with both runners.

Are you making something special for spring?

Happy Sewing!

  2. Hi Karla! These pieces just scream SPRING IS HERE, SPRING IS HERE! And it truly is, even way up here in the north woods. Snow is melting, bulbs are peeking out of the dirt, birds are chirping . . . soon we’ll have buds on the trees. I love everything you’ve shared. The Minky on the back of that sweet quilt will make it one of her favorites forever, I’m sure of it (both the baby and your friend). ~smile~ Roseanne
