Vortex Quilt – Crib Size in Phosphor

Y'all know I love a good rainbow quilt! Yet somehow when I saw all the beautiful day-glow colours in my friend Libs Elliott's Phosphor collection, it didn't occur to me that they would actually make a really awesome rainbow, until she posted a picture of them all lined up in rainbow order. I immediately ran over to mock up this baby Vortex quilt and then begged for some fat quarters to make a sample. It was June. It was Pride month. It was the awesome neon quilt that the world needed in that moment!

Cuteness overload warning: Making a quilted apron

This cute little apron is a modification of a pattern from my friend Dara Tomasson’s new book Walk, Jog, Run. I used these adorable Pine Lullaby prints from Art Gallery Fabrics and cut the squares at half the size to make a toddler size version of the apron. It came together super quickly, and I just love how it turned out.
