Baby Love Quilts - Simply Retro

 We're still following along with Jana's quilt along for the book Simply Retro by Camille Roskelley. This quilt is titled Baby Love and yes, we are loving it! It's a really quick one to piece together, which makes it nice to make for baby gifts. 
 This one above was pieced by my mom, Laurie. She is an awesome piecer, you can see how all her seems line up perfectly and how flat her quilt lays on the ground, especially compared to mine, which is below. I really should have squared up all my blocks, which I normally do, but I decided to try to skip that step to make it go just a little faster. Big mistake, oops ;)
 The fabric that we used is Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille. I love all of their fabric lines, so bright and cheery! The best part is seeing how different our quilts look just by using different fabrics from the same line. 
If you want to check out more of the quilts from the book Simply Retro, there is a flicker group set up or you can check out Jana's quilt along.

They both look wonderful and that does look like a terrific pattern.

Looks great, my squaring up ended in corners behaving badly :( I love Happy Go Lucky, wondering what to do with mine!
