Pezzy HST Heaven

Did you see the last edition of Fat Quarterly?  It's chock-o-block with pre-cut patterns, which suits my recent fixation with charm packs and layer cakes perfectly!   Or is it dangerously?  Either way, I can't get enough.  Inside, I found a pattern by Svetlana for a baby quilt that made my heart flutter:

I pulled out my Pezzy charm pack and got to stitching!


168 HSTs later, I am up to my eyeballs in little blocks that need to be squared and trimmed.  Still, I'm happy as can be!


I am a bit focused on baby quilts as of late as A) I need to find a way at craft shows to demonstrate to new quilters what they can make with a charm pack and B) I need to make a few to sell in the shop.  I think this one, though, will also be used to teach me how to hand quilt while again, acting as a demo for the perle cotton in the shop.  I have high hopes for this little cutie!
