Betsy’s Latest Baby Quilt

Betsy Maislen has been steadily quilting all winter up in Vermont.

I think she has completed 4 or 5 baby quilts in recent years and at least 3 this winter. Plus, she just made a BIG quilt of her own design that will be gifted soon—it’s out at the longarm quilter’s at the moment.

I love this pin wheel block quilt she made—and this is the second one of these. What I especially love is the star print background behind the pinwheels. I think that is a Cotton+Steel print. Anyway, it just makes this quilt sing, don’t you think?

Betsy has a really good eye for combining fabrics—very different from mine—and I always enjoy seeing what she has done. There are other blog posts here of her quilts, if you care to explore her “eye” choices.

I smiled when I saw her backing—and she sent me a piece of it too for my stash, which was fun. I sent her something in return that I hope will be fun for her too.

She got me into trouble a week ago when she sent me a picture of a fabric print she loved. I wound up ordering YARDS of it for a backing. But more on that later…

Meanwhile, have a great weekend!
