Ok, one more baby kit. Ok, maybe another one very soon but let’s just start with this one. It deserves a post all on its own. It’s so stinkin’ sweet it makes my teeth hurt!

Milk sugar flower baby kits

This is Elea Lutz Milk, Sugar, Flower line from Riley Blake. I ❤️❤️ her fabrics soooo much! MSF is reminiscent of vintage fabrics and nursery decor. Sweet and full of cottage charm. Magpies, strawberries, & little bunnies and kitties all rolled up into my most favorite line of hers yet…at least until the next one comes out in April. And let me tell ya…I’m pretty excited about that one too!

I figured what better way to show off these prints than in the Lucky Stars quilt pattern by Atkinson Designs. I’ts scrappy, just they way these fabrics would have been back in the day.

This pattern is super simple too. And don’t forget to check out the blog post I wrote about an easy way to square up your stars without the fuss. You can find that by clicking HERE.

Goodness, I just love retro and 30’s prints…The stars set on an aqua dottie background. I think that extra touch makes it feel even more vintage.

This KIT can be purchased with or without the backing fabric. With the backing included, you’ll recieve a complete quilt kit, the fabrics for the top, the pattern, backing & binding. Each option can be found in the SewModDesigns Etsy shop.

Even better is that this quilt finishes to a child’s lap quilt, measuring 45″ x 60″. So that means the quilt will be with them from baby to toddler to child…a keepsake. Or if you’re like me, you’re keeping it for yourself!!

Daisy even loves this quilt!

SewMod’s latest quilt kit is made using Lila Tueller’s fabric line Halle Rose from Rikey Blake. It has all my favorite colors…the teals, oranges and pinks of course!

Lucky Stars Quilt Kits

I used the quilt pattern from Atkinson Designs called Lucky Stars. You can’t go wrong with this one ya’ll. It’s so versatile. All you need is some background fabric and a bunch of beautiful fat quarters!

The great thing about Lucky Stars is that you can chain piece almost the entire quilt. I’m not kidding. And that means a quicker finish:) OK, so there’s several great things about this pattern aside from chain piecing…it’s simple with very little seams to match up, an entire line looks and works great with it so there’s no thinking about what fabrics to choose, it looks great with the star points scrappy(like mine) or all the same fabric, and the pattern has all of the different quilt sizes and fabric requirements. That means you can use it over and over. One for baby, one to keep your lap warm and one for your bed!

Paige quilted this one in a pretty, all-over design.

Lucky Stars Quilt Kits

I do have a a tip & short cut on trimming your blocks down to size. Trimming for me is so cumbersome and it never fails…I always screw up at least one block trying to figure out how to trim without having a lopsided block!

Start by cutting a 9-1/2″ square from freezer paper, fold it into fourths and mark the center with a x.

Fold your pieced block in fourths and finger press.

Place your freezer paper on top of the right side of the pieced block, shiny side down, lining up your ‘X’ in the center. Lightly press to keep it from shifting.

Trim the block using your rotary cutter and ruler to the 9-1/2″ square.

Remove the freezer paper and repeat with all of your blocks. Easy peasy! Perfectly trimmed 9-1/2″ squares.
