I made Amelia this quilt for her first birthday. It’s called orange, blue, green….
No, it is really a St. Louis 16 and is a classic patchwork quilt design. It is also an awesome tool for teaching colors, when using solids. I chose Kona because that is what my scrap baskets are full of!
I made this one with 2″ finished blocks. 5 columns by 6 rows and finishing at 40″ x 48″.
It barely hangs over the fence to capture all the blocks. This is how I balance all those shorter quilts on the fence! Clamp-on lamps, that’s right!
Yellow gingham made a perfect binding for this colorful little quilt.
Of course, I had to add her name in embroidery. I always embroider the recipient’s name, usually in cursive though. This was different.

How precious! What a lucky child! lily
Sweet quilt for an even sweeter little girl! I knew those clamp on lights had to be good for something else – thanks for sharing that tip , it’s a gem.
I’m sure that quilt will be much loved. I guess I should be happy to have a park fence nearby for taking photos … of course not as picturesque as your setting.
That’s what makes life interesting; everyone’s view is so unique, in more one ways than one!
Clamp on lights? Genius! I have those same lights so I will be taking this tip with me next time. Beautiful quilt, Lori. Love the detail of adding Amelia’s name! Can you add a link to TGIFF! so your readers can find us too? Thanks!
You were too quick out of the gate! I was posting link ups as you commented M-R! Or maybe I should have added the links before I joined them? Hmmm I never know which order to do it if I have already posted the link.
Thank you and thanks for stopping by.
So bright, happy and cheerful – it will bring joy wherever it goes. The best part is this – it is a very simple pattern. Your choice of colors just makes it sing and dance!!!
Cute quilt! The simple design and solid colors look great!
Bright and beautiful! Love it.
So simple and so effective. Just beautiful and a fun way to teach colors! 303 Kona colors to be exact!!!
