Precut Primer Quilt Update

With all of the quilts I'm making for blog hops, the Book of the Month quilt has been pushed aside. Well, no longer!

From the Precut Primer book (affiliate link), I've chosen to make a smaller, baby size version of the 5th Grade Quilt.

It's so cute how this book is organized, starting with a 1st Grade quilt, and working up to a 12th Grade quilt - graduation in a sense!

It's also fitting that the lower grade quilts are the easier ones with simple blocks, working to those in the upper grades with more detailed block structures. It's a fabulous way for a quilter to increase their skills - all in one book!

Now why did I choose 5th grade? Was it because of Mrs Sutton, who took me under her wing since falling behind at the one-room schoolhouse two years prior? Well, that's part of it. 

It's also because the quilt pattern looks fun and easily adaptable to a smaller size. So 5th Grade it is!

Now just because I don't have a jelly roll for this doesn't mean I can't strip my own fabric. Wanting to work with my hoarded stash of dots and stripes, I've put this collection together, along with a soft, buttery yellow background.

Not sure about that one pale blue stripe in the upper left corner - looks a bit boring compared to the others. I'll see how the others go, holding that one out till last.

See you later - I'm off to cut and sew!
Happy Quilting!
