I have been wanting to quilt a blanket for Bailey and Jasmine for a few months now, but didn’t feel inspired and had no idea what pattern to use. Until, I ran across this gorgeous quilt on Instagram, featured by the lovely Holly aka. freshly baked mommy from @decor8 but made by Luiza Pimpinella.

I cut the triangles, and laid them out to get a better picture on how I would want the quilt to look like. I am sure, for some it will be easier to create the pattern on a desktop. Not for me, I just couldn’t get it working, and everything took too long. So, this morning I laid the triangles out on the floor, and I think I found my favorite layout!

Since this is my first attempt to quilt, I am not gonna go deep into a DIY on this. I am pretty sure I will make mistakes, and there is no way I will complete this quilt in a few days (although, I hope I will)!

Please, be patient with me and wait until I have it all done, I will share everything I did when completed. Do you have any tips for me about quilting that may help me along the way, maybe some “how to’s” or “how not to’s”?
