Carle Baby Quilt

A baby quilt for a lovely baby born this summer to some of our favorite hippy-dippy friends.

I love that polka dot fabric so much I wish I had bought more!

Seuss Quilt

Made this just in time for a baby shower for a good friend with a Seuss themed nursery.

Sometimes I find it hard to work with a print like this one. I tried to stick to some simple blender prints and I am thrilled with how it turned out. Not gender specific and bright and cheerful!

I wish I had gotten better pictures but it was late the night before the shower. That is the gift bag there on the left that I crammed it into a few minutes later! … Maybe I will get one with the baby on it! 

This was my March finish for a 4 month Work-In-Progress challenge at the local quilt shop. I started easy, the next 3 WIP’s are much larger so I will be back in a little while with a Kaleidoscope quilt.

Pluses baby quilt

A throwback to some warmer days. When it edged above 30 degrees for days at a time. I pulled out some squares and made a good scrap buster in the fall.

I am just waiting for a baby shower for a girl baby to gift this away.

And I got to use this backing that I have been hanging on to forever. Love!

Black and White Baby Quilt

A baby quilt for an expecting music teacher. I bought the only music fabrics at the 2 stores I visited,  embraced the black and white idea and found a pin on pintrest and away we go!

IMG_0872

Why yes, I did just finish painting the front hall and adding these hooks. Don’t they look swell?

 

IMG_0874

The applique flower, needed a little something, so I added that stitched swirl.  It makes me want to add more stitched detail somewhere… but where?

IMG_0871

And the back is part of an IKEA duvet cover I got from AS IS for $10. It couldn’t be more perfect for a baby girl!

IMG_0878

Yes, this darn quilt is a rhombus. How I did it, I don’t know. I trimmed at right angles! I Swear!  You don’t notice at all until you hang it… Maybe I will blame it on the new hooks, they must be off… right?

pink and orange fish scale quilt, WIP

I got a request from a far away friend to make the orange fish scale again. Here are the pillows I made this summer. After I cut out an enormous number of orange prints, we chatted about the colors in her daughter’s room. None of which were orange (HA!) and I worked some pinks in.

Last time I used  the efla circle cutter to cut 7″ circles and then I cut them in half.  But this time I went big and bought the circle die for my new Go Baby Accuquilt fabric cutter. I got it for my birthday (after emailing the exact model I wanted to my ever-so-loving-hubby) and I am addicted. I used the 5″ circle die and then lay them in a row just inside the 2.5″ strip die and they were cut exactly in half, 30 at a time!!

It is measuring at 36″ x 40″ right now. Currently this is heat-n-bonded to a piece of muslin with no stitching yet. I plan on top stitching the whole thing.

I am making excuses to keep this hanging on my project wall. I truly love to look at it!

Baby Paintbox Quilt

I started this while in the last days of pregnancy. Baby turned 3 months old this past Tuesday.  So, this is what 20 minutes of sewing a day will get you;

I was stumped on what the binding should be for a while but ran across this lovely polka dot satin at the Joann’s and made half a yard into just the right amount of binding.

I added a stripe on the back in the dead center. The minkee came up just a smidge short and this is how I made up the 3 inches I needed to match the front.

In full disclosure I should tell you I did not use any batting in this quilt. Strange, right? Well, it was very intentional. I noticed that we had not been using the baby quilts I had for miss d. but instead using the store bought minkee blankets, and I realized the reason was the quilts I had made, even with thin cotton batting, were just too bulky to use. So, this is just fabric and minkee and it feels like just the right weight, better for traveling from room to room and snuggling with at naptime.

Pink and Green Baby Quilt

For our baby!

I have spent a long time on this quilt, partly because my big belly makes sewing a little tougher, but partly because I wanted it to be awesome.  I think it ended up pretty awesome.

I used some scraps for the back, not really what I had imagined in the beginning, but I am pretty pleased with it. The minty green stripes are minkee, I think maybe I should have made the whole back minkee, but the pinwheel squares were too hard to resist.

Green- pink- brown for baby

In theory this quilt is for a baby that is due in September. However if it gets sold at the Farmers Market next Saturday I will have to make another one for that September baby. Mom requested green with a touch of pink and brown. Which is not exactly what this became. But who can really blame me? The Heather Ross VW van fabric found it’s way in and I couldn’t convince it to come back out.

IMG_1844 And pink minkee? Well…  it was in the off-cut bin with a good markdown, and I love a good markdown.

IMG_1847 This is called a “card trick” square. They have always been very difficult for me. I have tried a couple different ways to make all the little points line up and quite honestly- this is the best I have ever done, and it is far from perfect. I seem to loose the outside points every time. I always revisit it after I give up in frustration but I have never been able to make them well.

Doesn’t this look familiar? Blue and Brown for Baby

I enjoyed a weekend with no real plans and was able to finish up 2 quilts that have been “marinating” for a while.  This one is every single little scrap left over from the wedding quilt from 2 weeks ago. Along with some pieced together batting. It is almost a genuine scrap quilt but I did buy the blue minkee backing specially for it.

I am  regretting not using a true binding, however not enough to rip it out and start over. One more quilt for the Farmers Market!IMG_1842

Pink and Red Baby Quilt

img_13692

It was sold before it was even finished! I would have thought twice about selling it if I knew how much I would love it, the pink and red, the lattice pattern, the dress with the same fabric, all of it makes my heart sing.
