Potluck Baby Blankie

When we first moved to Payson, our sweet neighbor Jennie was only 10 years old.  


Now she is having her first baby in a few weeks.


I knew that I had to make her a special quilt for her new little boy :)


After making a Haul-It-All tote for the Moda Bakeshop, I had the better part of a jelly roll left to make into something fun.


I thought Potluck, the herringbone design and straight line quilting would make a perfect design for a baby boy blankie.


Of course, a special label was in order.


For the back, I used assorted American Jane prints.


I had hoped to use these letters for the straps on the Haul-It-All tote, but they were TOO big.  (I imagined them to be scrabble tile size ;)


For the quilting, I used my walking foot and did an organic line design ;)
