The Sketchbook Lucky Baby Quilt

Lucky quilt pattern by Sharon McConnell using Sketchbook fabrics by Art Gallery Fabrics

I recently released a brand new quilt pattern called Lucky. This sweet design is so much fun and simple to sew…it is perfect for any occasion.

Today I want to share a baby size Lucky quilt I made using my friend Sharon Holland’s, fabrics called “Sketchbook” (Art Gallery Fabrics 2015). This size is included with the pattern as well as the larger one I showed you before plus an even larger size.

For my Lucky baby quilt, I decided to make the nine patch blocks in scrappy prints rather than all pink. I like that it gives the overall design a slightly different look…the stars stand out more as the primary element. This also gave me an opportunity to use a greater variety of beautiful fabrics rather than limiting myself to just pinks.

The quilting on this was done by Darby Myers (Quilted Squid). I used Hobbs heirloom batting, which I like for the light weight and nice drape. For piecing, I use Aurifil 50 wt. thread in off white. It is an ideal weight and neutral color for all fabrics.

I always like to play a bit with a pattern and see how it looks with colors or values mixed up. It is an easy way to make a quilt pattern more “you” and unique. You could make Lucky even more scrappy by making the stars all different colors!

The Sketchbook fabrics are still available, look for them at your favorite fabric shop.

Happy sewing this week!
