Hunky Dory!

Hunky A friend gave me a number of layer cakes after publication of a certain new quilt book.   I immediately went searching for ways to use a single layer cake.

My stepsister is expecting a baby girl later this month, so I thought Chez Moi's Hunky Dory collection would make a very sweet baby quilt.   I found this Pattern Basket design, Tying the Knot, and ordered it.  All it takes is one layer cake and some yardage for the border, an you have an easy but beautiful baby quilt!

I modified it a little - I didn't want to make the ties for a baby quilt, although I think they are a cute touch.

I'm going to put some Minkee on the back and have it quilted with a stipple design.


  1. OMG, it is so beautiful!!!!! I need some Hunky Dory. Too bad my budget says "no way".

  2. Well isn't that a happy quilt. I love the borders as well and some Minkee on the back is gonna be great. I'm so glad that you're able to do some things in the quilt room friend. That injury still on my mind, imagining how it's healing and all. Not that I care. You know I don't give a hoot! hee.

  3. That's a lovely little quilt- lucky baby!

  4. What a wonderful quilt...very lucky baby!
