I just added Camille Roskelley’s Little Man pattern, from her Simplify book, to my Summer of Quilt Tops to-do list. It’s a quilt I’ve made twice before, once in a contrasting blue and orange palette ...
And again in a more subdued palette ...
The beauty of this pattern is that the blocks don’t require much fabric—I made the first two versions with mere scraps of novelty prints I had stubbornly held on to. Plus, the final product is about 40 inches by 51 inches—I prefer gifting generously sized baby quilts.
My third Little Man quilt will be more of a Little Lady quilt, featuring Seaside Carnival, a collection by Rae Ritchie for Dear Stella. There is no intended recipient for this quilt yet, but since it’s the Summer of Quilt Tops, I don’t think that matters. Let the unquilted tops pile up!
If you want to make your own Little Man quilt, you’re in luck: I have a copy of Simplify to give away. Just comment below to be entered to win. (If a prompt would be helpful, let us know whether there’s a quilt pattern you find yourself making again and again. What’s so great about it?)
Update: Kathy S. is the winner!
