Brighten up a baby's room with this fun "Flower Child" crib quilt pattern combining clam shells and flying geese. The center of the clam shells is perfect for highlighting a few great large floral and geometric patterns.
The cover quilt was designed around Kaffe Fasset's Brocade Peony in Aqua from the Kaffe Collection III. We pulled two geometrics, 2 tone on tone greens in different shades, a blue polka dot and the white background to coordinate with the colors in the flowers. Minky on the back gives it a soft, warm touch. We had it quilted in an all over swirling pattern to complement the circles in the clam shells. The finished size is 36" x 48", which will fit a standard crib. I would recommend this quilt pattern to the confident beginner to intermediate level and above because you need a knowledge of appliqué.

My mom and I decided to team up for a block of the month quilt that would be a showstopper and we are thrilled to introduce Baltimore Woods! We wanted to take the feeling of a traditional baltimore album quilt and infuse it with some fun and modern elements, and what's more fun than a purple skunk in a bowtie?!
This pattern includes instructions for applique and 11 months of patterns and is now available for retail or wholesale orders on my site or on PinkHippoQuilts.com. For wholesale orders please contact me for pricing and quantities or order your retail copy now.
This quilt is currently on display at Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, Utah, at Pink Hippo's Booth #2046 if you want to see it in person.
Welcome to the final stop on our Dresden Carnival Blog Hop! I hope you have enjoyed all the wonderful projects and reviews and commented on each one to win a copy of our new book.
As you may have read in my mom's blog on Pink Hippo Quilts, our love of Dresdens runs deep as we both have a treasured Dresden quilt made by my grams, my mom's mother, Esther Howard. When deciding on a theme to present to Stash Books for a book, we kept coming back to the Dresden. So we decided to take this classic block and see how many unique variations we could come up with to reinvent the Dresden and present it in a modern way. I'm so ecstatic about how these quilts and the book have turned out! There is so much variety in design and different techniques that I know there is a quilt (or three!) for every level and style of quilter.
I was especially happy to get to put my own fabric line, Fontaine by P&B Textiles, into two of the quilts. Below are the Ferris Wheel Quilt and Carousel Table Topper. I gave them an Art Deco, vintage modern influence to go with the fabric line and did a deconstructed Dresden medallion in the center.
My other favorite that I designed is the Lily Pad Quilt. I love more modern and geometric designs, so I wanted to create a Dresden that felt fresh and current.
Comment below about your most treasured quilt for the chance to win your own copy of Dresden Carnival. The winner will be announced on Monday, May 2nd here on the blog. An international winner will receive an ebook, while a US winner will receive a hard copy.

I'm so excited to announce the release of my first quilt book "Dresden Carnival" that I co-authored with Marian Gallian of Pink Hippo Quilts! It's been 2 years of hard work and lots of fun since we first submitted the proposal to C&T Publishing and we are looking forward to its release in April of 2016.
Our book is a parade of modern Dresden quilts, packed with playful color choices, all-new layouts, and exciting borders. Peruse 16 projects, 4 bonus variations, and 5 alternate colorways for creativity that knows no bounds! Basic needle-turn techniques are included, and patterns range from beginner-friendly to more advanced. Take a vintage favorite and infuse it with pizazz. These truly innovative Dresden blocks will become heirlooms for the next generation.
