Rising Star Quilt

I love my job and the company I work for, I am so lucky to have met so many great people and life long friends through work. One of those friends announced they were expecting a baby. I love anything "baby" and was over the moon when hearing this news.

... and so the quilting began. I have about a gazillion quilts I want to do and have them stowed away for the right time. I am sure every quilter can relate to the "wish list" of quilts they want to create.

I had a jelly roll and did not know what to do with it (very normal for me, I tend to purchase any jelly roll that spikes my interest... no matter if I have a project or not.) When I stumbled upon the tutorial from Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Company I knew this lost jelly roll would now find a home.

I think my motto should be KISS "Keep it Simple Silly". The reason being: keeping it simple is the main criteria I use when selecting a quilt project. This quilt definitely upheld the KISS motto, seriously check out the tutorial to see for yourself how simple it was. Rising Star - Tutorial

*Drum Roll* Here is the final product and the introduction of the CUTEST baby ever !!!
Ashton Matteo Drapeau
I have to say that the name for this quilt is very fitting as Ashton is a rising star.


Until Next Time
-The Youngest-
Don't forget to leave us a comment, we love hearing from you!

Adorable....and the quilt is pretty cute too! :) I like that pattern, thanks for the link to the tutorial. I have a stack of jelly rolls and charm packs that I buy just because too. One day I'll find a use for them, right? Thanks for sharing your quilt and that sweet little baby on Main Crush Monday!

Beth - I am glad I am not the only one who has an addiction to Jelly Rolls, thanks for taking the time to read my post, and for hosting the link up ☺

Jayne - You are 100% correct little Ashton really does steal the show.
