My Life, quilt as you go lap quilt

Hadleigh’s Freebie Friday

Three days before we left for market I became a great aunt once again!

I told you, I knew it would happen!

I’m so glad I had the foresight to see this.

So, shortly after I made Lucy’s quilt last summer that I showed you here,

I also made Hadleigh’s quilt.


Yep, I used my favorite “Name That Quilt” pattern!

It saved me hours & hours in several ways.


I didn’t spend forever trying to figure out WHAT to make.


(once I made all of the fabric choices)

It didn’t take long to trace & cut the letters,

then cut a few strips each of the chosen fabrics.


It’s Quilt-as-you-go, so it went together quickly

& best part, I didn’t have to fret over how to quilt it,

or pay someone else to quilt it.

Within a few hours I had a finished quilt.

Love it when I can look back at something I did and realize how smart I was!

It is pretty convenient how modern medicine allows new parents to be so prepared.

They made her an adorable nursery.


From this photo I was able to shop for just the right fabrics.

(My favorite part!!!)Suzn+Quilts+Hadleigh+Pieces

Then  I spent about half an hour cutting…

And of course, mom was surprised & loved it…


Now for the fun part.

I’m going to give away two of my

Name That Quilt books

so you can make one or several for yourself.


there are both baby


& lap size options


& the entire full size, reversed alphabet is included!

Just leave me at comment above and I’ll draw two lucky winners Monday

who will receive their own copies.

Until next time,
