    I found the cutest pattern Posey Pops by The Quilting Collective using Beautiful Day by Corey Yoder. I got the kit from an Etsy Shop. I decided that I would go ahead and cut the pattern out.

She shared that it was going to be a girl and Petal Power by Me and my Sister Designs had just released. The pattern is Trifles by Its Sew Emma. It was a really easy sew. I finished the top in a weekend. I then was able to make the backing and pillowcase the next weekend. I bound the quilt over a couple of weeknights after work. I always like to make a matching pillowcase. I usually make my baby quilts a bit larger – so that they fit a toddler. I make the matching pillowcase so that the baby can drag it around and love on it for a long time. In anticipation of getting more quilts finished this year, I ordered 25 of these labels. I love using the sweetwater labels, but they usually don’t have the…
