Sienna's Miracle Quilt

This quilt was made for Ashlee, my cousin, and her baby, Sienna, in June 2008. It's called a miracle quilt because each square is 1 1/2 in. finished. It was actually pretty easy to piece. It's just a series of "four patches", which is just four squares sewn together and then four of those four patches sewn together, and so on. It's a easy way to make sure your corners match up, instead of trying to match up really long strips. My other favorite thing about this quilt is that I got to use some scraps of my favorite fabrics.
The quilting is called shadowing or echoing, I think. I just sewed 1/4 in. (a quilter's favorite measurement) from the edge of each corner. I've decided that I love to make baby quilts. It's also becoming very apparent that I like piecing squares.

  1. Most brands do continually play around with the products and and add complications or hublot replica and materials. Does always work, but they do try new stuff regularly, rather than once in a blue moon. So I had to do some quick replica watches sale to find out how this guy botches one rolex replica sale after another and somehow remains. So I looked into this watches store, and I found out how he manages to stay afloat. If people want to do up a boring but well finished watch into something better looking in their replica watches but not as well finished. Rolex has often made extremely difficult to obtain, but also an icon among luxury chronographs. I had one around for a couple of rado replica and, iso long after starting to wear it, I asked myself the question.
