FNSI: Herringbone Baby Quilt

"Friday Night Sew In" 
is hosted by Heidi and her cousin Bobbi, and this month there are over 120 participants!

I continued work on piecing another top, using diamonds leftover from the Pinafore Print Quilt.

As with the previous quilt, this design is from the same Kaffe Fassett book:

and is named "Herringbone Baby Quilt", but I think it would also do as a lap quilt.

Every other vertical row uses the wrong side of the fabric.  I love how it gives such dimension to the top.  And let me tell ya, it seemed ca-razy to be sewing them "wrong sides together"!  Had to keep reminding myself!

I've sewn all of the diamonds together vertically, now to join those rows...should go fast!


  1. Oooo... how cool is that! Very nice indeed...

  2. Lovely! I am 100% positive I would go crazy trying to remember to sew them the "wrong way"! Your quilt is fantastic!

  3. Oh, I'd never be able to keep it straight in my head if I had to sew wrong sides together. Great job! Looks like you had a super awesome FNSI. And I love love love the pinafore quilt you linked to. It's fantastic. :)
