This blog post is a total baby bomb, but this quilt made me do it! How can such a soft and cozy quilt not also include my two-month old baby? Impossible! The New Horizons quilt pattern is now available!
This pattern checks all of the boxes for what I love in a quilt:
- Large pieces: These blocks are big and use large pieces of fabric making it perfect for double gauze and other scrumptious wovens!
- Beginner friendly: The blocks are made with only two beginner techniques.
- Looks harder than it is: Although the pattern uses one simple block, it achieves a dynamic design by visually creating both horizontal and vertical "stripes," making it appear more complex than it actually is. So cool!
- Lots of sizes: The pattern includes queen, twin, throw, baby and pillow sizes!
- Sew along: Need some extra guidance or maybe just a chance to win cool prizes? Join us for an online community sew along starting June 30.

Laura chose an all-over pantograph of triangles for the quilting, which was done by BERNINA of Naperville. The cream thread nicely matches the background fabric. For more information about longarm quilters, check out these posts:
Isn't that Nani Iro double gauze the dreamiest?? It's the one print if you're wondering. I think it gives the quilt a delicate watercolor effect. Making it even more perfect for my baby photoshoot! Haha!
Ta-ta for now! We'll see you again for JoJo's 3 month photoshoot! 😉
