Here are the pictures of my Herringbone baby quilt finished and offered to my niece in Paris.
The gray color recalls Paris' sky, the blue is for the baby boy and the yellow gives a sunny touch.

For this quilt I did 80 blocks of 4.5" x 4.5 each (11.5 cm)
To make the triangles I cut strips of 5" wide (12.7 cm) from each color, then squares of 5" (12.7 cm) and then cut diagonal to obtain 2 triangles. 

The final size of the finished quilt is 32" x 40" (81.5 x 101.5 cm)

    1. La plupart des tissus sont des "scraps" de différents designers, tous importes des USA.
      Beaucoup font partie de la ligne Honor Roll de Anna Maria Horner pour Free Spirit, Artisan de Pat Bravo pour Art Gallery, Cloud 9, Birch Fabrics, Michael Miller...
      Mon site préféré pour les commandes de tissus :

      Joyeuses fetes a vous de meme.

  10. Beautiful! The color choices couldn't be better, and I love that your herring bones are 'mix & match'.

    1. Thanks Robby! The "mix & match" is always a chalenge for me but I think that it is more interesting than using the same colors and the result is as well more interesting.
