Next Up baby quilt featuring fabrics by Elea Lutz from Carried Away Quilting


Have you been searching for a sweet and simple baby quilt pattern? Look no further than my Next Up pattern! This charm pack friendly pattern finishes at 38” square and is easy enough to stitch up in a weekend.


My sample quilt features darling prints from three Elea Lutz collections. When I sew with Elea Lutz fabrics, I find myself stopping often just to gaze at the tiny details.

Custom kits featuring Ella & Ollie by Fig Tree & Company from Carried Away Quilting

Happy National Quilting Day! As promised, I've made up several custom kits with Carried Away Quilting patterns, all featuring the beautiful new collection by Fig Tree & Company, Ella & Ollie! 

Please note that I am not a fabric store, and I only purchase a small supply of fabric annually for use in my pattern design. So these kits are limited in number and once they are gone, they are gone. I appreciate your support and enthusiasm, but please remember that my blog sponsors (whose logos run along the left-hand side of my website) typically carry the same collections that I ...
