Friday Finish: Homespun Baby Quilt

I recently showed you a homespun baby quilt that had been sent to me by a reader, Mary in CA, for me to quilt and use as a charity quilt.


I’ve had several people ask me for a full view of the quilt.  I’ve had people even ask for a pattern.  To be honest, I wanted the pattern too so that I could make one of my own.  I finished up the quilt and wrote a pattern out for it because honestly, I want this for a go to pattern for a baby boy quilt.


Isn’t it a gorgeous quilt??  I just used a very small stipple design for the quilting.  My daughter Kalissa saw it and immediately claimed it for a benefit that she knew was happening.  There is a little girl name Lanie who is very young who just underwent a double kidney and liver transplant who lives  in the town south of us.  They are having a benefit for the family this Saturday.  The quilt will be up for auction at the benefit.  Unfortunately we can’t go to the benefit as we have a wedding in Minnesota.  If you are interested in learning more about Lanie.  Here is the families facebook page where you can follow her progress.

If you’d like the copy of the pattern, here’s a link to that.  You MUST have an Adobe reader program to view the pattern.

Thanks for sending the quilt tops Mary…I love it and I am sure it’s going to do a lot of good for Lanie’s  and her family!!  Mary sent other fun quilts.  I can’t wait to work on them.

Today, we are hooking up with……Confessions of a Fabric AddictLink a Finish FridayHouse of Hepworth’s,  Freedom Fridays and Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. The link to the pattern is not working right – but I know it is a Jacob’s Ladder block – love how she extended the HSTs into the border. A wonderful quilt for a good cause.

  2. Thanks Jo for the picture as requested. But to include a pattern too !!! BIG THANKS for that !! Definitely added to my TO DO list…………

    Thank you so much for the pattern…it is a gorgeous quilt! Your quilting is wonderful…I enjoy your blog so much! Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi Jo,
    Thanks for writing out the pattern. I need to make some charity blankets and this will be a great leader and ender project.

  5. Thanks to both you and Mary! I have a bunch of “rescued” shirts that I could use. I also like the border.

  6. Wow Jo, thanks for working up a pattern for this! I need to make some baby quilts for donation and will add this to the patterns I’m collecting for that.

  7. Jo, that’s a great quilt – and a really simple pattern – thanks for sharing it! I can see it becoming a go-to pattern for our quilt ministry too! Whoop whoop!!

  8. Is there any way you can email me this pattern. I have consistently tried and failed to download the quick convert and I’m very leery of putting any additional unknown apps on my computer. Just had it serviced and cleaned up of thousands of unwanted files.
    Thank you.

    1. I no longer have the file. Our computer was taken out by a storm some time ago and that file was on that computer. Sorry. Here is the link to the reader that you need to view the file. This is a safe program and needed program if you are going to download anything. Here the link to the program.

  9. I can’t get to the pattern either, and I would simply love to do this quilt!
    Could you take a couple of mintues and e-mail it to me please?
    Thank you in advance.
    Manon Bales :)
