Father's Dream

 I have always wanted to try a "low volume" quilt.  Although I had to toss in some splashes of colors to help the blocks stand out.  Here is my "Father's Dream" baby quilt.

I recently purchased the 500 Quilt Blocks book by Lynne Goldsworthy and Kerry Green and instantaneously fell in love with the "Father's Dream" block.  I liked the main block and all it's variations!  ** This book is great because not only do you get every block imaginable, you also get every variation of the block as well.  The cover says the only book you ever need, they were not joking.  

Here is my version of the main block.

And, my versions of the variation block.

 The backing is going to be a cream color with light pink dots to tie together the low volume theme.  The blocks each got sashing and a light aqua square in each corner.  (Sorry about the blurry picture)

 Another variation of the block. 

This little beauty is currently laying on the floor all basted.  Hopefully, there will be final pictures soon.  The plan is to stipple the top, but I may use a heart loop pattern.  I am still deciding.  

Sew long,
