New source for baby quilt patterns - Deborah's Designs

There are so many pattern designers out there and small shops to buy from that it's sometimes difficult to catch everyone. (Which is why I'm here for you!)

I've been meaning to mention for some times this online store called Deborah's Designs, in particular her line of smaller quilt patterns. These patterns are for quilts up to 54" in size and some are specifically designed for baby quilts. But with the right colors and fabrics, just about any of them would make darling quilts. I of course love the Crayon Box design pictured here with it's bold colors.

I was first drawn to Deborah's site by the Spring Fling design, though. It's a great example of an oversized center applique, which can take a simple quilt to extraordinary. This design would work well as is for a baby quilt. Think about what else you could applique - a kite on a string, a teddy bear, a series of circles. The options are unlimited!

Prices for the patterns on her site run $8 each and some of them you can get kitted for prices ranging from $36-$62 that I could see.
