It's very rare now that I make a quilt that isn't part of a quilt pattern release. But when my friend, Ashley, gave birth to - who I'm calling - my new best friend 3 weeks ago, I knew I had to drop everything and make them their first handmade quilt! 

When I was thinking about what quilt pattern I wanted to use for the baby quilt, I couldn't stop coming back to my Weavers Cottage quilt pattern. While this quilt pattern only calls for four fat quarters, I wanted to make it extra scrappy by adding a few extra fat quarters into the mix. I actually asked for some help from Peony Pedal Quilts to get the right mix of fabrics perfected. I showed her my inspiration photo and she put together the fabrics I used in the quilt.

I think my favorite part about this quilt is the sashing details between each block. In the Weavers Cottage quilt pattern, I have it written so that the sashing details are all the same color. But in the spirit of scrappiness, I decided these details needed to be part of the fun too. I LOVE how it looks and might be making all my future Weavers Cottage quilts like this too.

I finished this baby quilt version of Weavers Cottage off with some Mammoth Flannel fabric by Robert Kaufman on the back to make it extra snuggly. If you've never used a flannel on the back of your quilt - I'm here to tell you that it will change your life and you'll never want to back your quilt with anything else ever again. It's seriously so good! 

I went with some classic straight-line quilting to keep the drape of the quilt feeling good and added some gray gingham fabric as the binding. I'm so happy with how this turned out. And if my 3-week-old best friend wasn't so dang cute, I might have kept this quilt for myself!
