Double Up Baby Quilt | Giveaway | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a baby quilt made from Shannon's new pattern, Double Up!  The pattern goes together quickly because it's strip pieced, my favorite kind of piecing!  I am a stripper at ♥!  The pattern includes instructions in 5 sizes and is fat quarter and yardage friendly.

Shannon is my pattern editor and tester and does a great job making sure my patterns make sense.  You will find her patterns are well written with detailed charts, graphics, and instructions.

Quilt Stats:

Size:  40" square.
Fabric:  Pam Kitty and polka dots.  The backing is black with white polka dots.
Batting:  Warm and Natural White.
Quilting:  Daisies allover in black thread on Gratitude.


Here are Shannon's versions of Double Up.  This one is made with fat quarters for a scrappy version.  Yes, it's all still strip pieced!  I love how sweet this quilt is.

The dramatic two-color version is made with yardage.  Isn't the difference between the three quilts amazing?!?  You may not have known it's the same pattern if I hadn't let you in on that secret!

In celebration of Shannon's new pattern, she's giving away a PDF copy of Double Up on her blog!  Hop on over to her blog and enter to win a copy of the pattern, and be sure to give her some ♥ and support in her pattern shop.

That's a great quilt Myra! Amazing how different in different fabrics!

Sylvia said...

I love patterns that look completely different when you vary the color scheme or amount of fabrics used.

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

It looks like three different patterns. Amazing how colours and prints made such a difference.

You are so right - I'm constantly amazed at how the same pattern can look so different! Beautiful quilts!
