OMG October Finish - Herringbone Baby Quilt Replacement

My One Monthly Goal finish for October is the repeat of a baby quilt I first did in 2017. You can read about the original post here and the reason for the repeat here, but basically the owner lost her baby quilt and wanted a replacement.

The original quilt looks very similar to the replacement, as you can see from the two pictures below. The difference in the blues is simply due to different lighting - cloudy in one and sunny in the other.

I was unable to find a few of the original fabrics, but I actually like the new
quilt fabrics just as well as the originals. I hope the owner does too!

I did more quilting on this one. I started with "in the ditch" quilting
and as always was amazed at how much easier it looks than it is to do. Then
I added a criss-cross pattern, which gave the quilt more texture.

The binding was the same fabric I used as part of the pieced back.

Fabrics used:

Serenity by Amy Ellis for Moda
Meow or Never Tomcat Grey, by Erin Michael for Moda
White with multi-colored mini triangles and light aqua with white polka dot, both from Hobby Lobby
Grunge in Cream (I think - lost the label!), by Sweetwater for Moda

Backing: Meow or Never Playthings in milk, by Erin Michael for Moda

Binding: Light aqua with white polka dots from Hobby Lobby

  1. Both are pretty! Both have interesting fabrics in there!

  2. It is very generous of you to replace the quilt.

    1. Thanks for visiting Karen! Well, since the first quilt was free, for this one I charged a nominal fee to cover the extra fabrics and postage.

  3. Your replacement quilt is beautiful Linda! You have done such a great job with the quilting and matching the fabrics to the previous quilt! Have a lovely weekend! Christine xx

  4. I just love this quilt! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish!

    1. Thank you Patty. I appreciate your linkup, it motivates me!

  5. That's such a pretty quilt, Linda! I'm sure the mom who lost the original was heartbroken. I would have been! I love the design - you made a lot of HSTs!

    1. Thanks Diann! Yes I did make a lot of HSTs, and I don't enjoy making HSTs - lol!

  6. The owner lost the quilt? LOST IT?! A beautiful, handmade quilt? I'll say no more. I need time to process this and recover from the shock. The new one is gorgeous, as are all of them.

    1. Thank you Pattie! The owner lost it at a zoo, and I imagine it was in the stroller and fell out in the crowd. She was very upset about it and looked everywhere for it. Hopefully someone else got to enjoy it. :)


Thank you so much for visiting!
