Crafty Staff: Little Baby Lucas Quilt by Sarah Price

Hey there everyone, Sarah here! I just wanted to share my recent quilting project with everyone. For the last few months I’ve been working on a baby quilt for my soon to be nephew Lucas. 

I didn't really follow a pattern, but I knew I wanted the quilt to have a herringbone look. So with a little help from Pinterest I came up with this quilt. My quilt finishes at 36” x 42” – just the right size for a little crib quilt. To add some fun to this quilt I colored some of the blocks so they form the letter L for little baby Lucas, of course! Each block is made from: one white 3 1/2” square, one 3 7/8” white square, one 3 7/8” color square and one color 3 1/2” square.

My quilt used a bunch of half-square triangles, so I made them two at a time using Method #2 in this video. This squaring-up tip came in handy to keep my quilt from getting wonky with all of my half-square triangle units.

For fabric, here are the solids that I chose to work with:

From Left to right: Kona Solids Medium Grey, White, and Azure

If you're thinking about making your own quilt, we have this Houndstooth pattern by V and Co as well!

Thanks for letting me share my latest quilting project with you all today. Happy sewing everyone!

You should totally make up a pattern to sell of this quilt, I would buy it. I love the colors you chose for your quilt. Perfect little baby quilt.

I love this quilt. Partly because my oldest son is named Lucas, and partly because it's so simple in it's design. Just gorgeous.
