Quilt #17 :: Jeffrey's Blocks


We are continuing my trip down quilt memory lane. I am revisiting my early quilts and finally writing posts about them.

My 17th quilt was another baby quilt. 2014 was the last year I was involved with MOPS as my son was in school and I had discovered quilting to fill my days. My friend Emily, who I knew from MOPS, was the godsend who told us about the AMAZING school that D would end up attending the next six years. In 2014, her son Jeffrey was born. He and his mom are definitely quilt worthy.


I bought the blue heart fabric in the Netherlands at the Utrecht fabric market. I was saving it for something special. 


I was young and uninformed when I made this quilt. I found the pattern on Pinterest and reverse engineered the pattern. I learned when writing this post that the blog from which I liked the sample quilt has been taken down. A Google image search led me to Ana Crafts, who does have an English-version of her pattern Manta Bebe Squares available.

It's fun to see how my craft room has evolved. I now have a full wall of IKEA Trofast storage bins. 


This is a great pattern to show off a favorite print. I chose it because of the plus-style crosses that emerge when you focus on the grays.


We had a fresh blanket of snow the morning I gave the quilt to Emily and Jeffrey.


I mimicked the cross pattern with the label.


 Fun fact, the next year I made another quilt for Jeffrey's little brother, Jonah:
