Ruby Star and Gypsy Rose Cottage

Today I wanted to share with you my new offerings for my Etsy store Made by Melody Lake. I love making baby quilts. No joke I finished 6 tops in one weekend. I am slow at getting them all quilted but they are there, in a lovely little stack, waiting to be turned into a little one's treasure.

This is Ruby Star made with the Ruby line from Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics. I added a small white lace to the end borders. The background is solid white and the binding is scrappy. The pattern is Silver Star by Villa Rose Designs and it measures approximately 32"x42".

This is Gypsy Rose Cottage made with the Gypsy Rose line by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics. The background is cream and the binding is chocolate polka dots. The pattern is La France by Villa Rose Designs and it measures approximately 36"x45".

Both quilts have pieced backs. I love the way a pieced back adds a second look to a quilt. These two gems are perfect for a crib or play mat. They are machine pieced and machine quilted by me.

A little about the Villa Rose Designs patterns.... These are simple patterns but I think they do a fabulous job at showcasing fabric lines. The patterns come on postcards and were less then $3 a piece. I great value for a pattern that will look different every time with different fabric choices. I got mine at Sew Katie Jean in Lincoln, CA.

By the way, its Sew Katie Jean's 1st Anniversary so go and say Hi to Katie.... tell her Melody sent you. :)
