Carle Baby Quilt

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

Scrappy Baby Quilt

This was a special request quilt, which also happened to be a stash buster. The mom requested a quilt that has lots of different images, to have fun identifying things with baby. dscf1461

As a result there is a little of everything in here. Ladybugs, cupcakes, rabbits, birds etc.

dscf1467I used some batik for the backing that I got on the $3 a yard sale cart at On Board Fabrics and some butterfly fabric that had been cut in squares for a long-abandoned project and all in all, a great stash buster!

Shorter days means more photographing inside. It is so hard to get a good quilt picture without sunlight. Thank goodness for photoshop.

I am starting a new chapter in baby quilts. Blanket binding galore and minke ( I think that is the right name) as backing. I did some crazy all over stitching on this instead of my normal stitch-in-the-ditch practice. It was time consuming and I’m not very satisfied with the final result.

I thought it was looking plain so I made 2 of these little flowers, not really certain where to put them on the quilt but loving them a lot. I spent a ridiculous amount of time moving them around the quilt last night…

2 new baby quilts

I have decided to stop buying fabric for a while and use what I already have. I am pretty fond of this quilt. I love that the Kaffe flowers stand out with very little fabric. I also enjoy the quilt pattern, I invented it to accommodate the red fabric which was only skinny remnants from Jules’s quilt. Fast, easy, lovely.

I was itching to do an appliqué on the center square but couldn’t find the right inspiration before I had to take it to the Maternal Wellness Center on Saturday (where these are both on sale, hint, hint) .

The red one I like a little less. It turned out to be an exercise in screwed up measurements and I used every last thread of the cherry fabric, , one inch less and I would have been forced to added another print entirely. I also think the blue clashes. Those are itty-bitty crabs in case you can’t see them. I used them on my brother-in-law’s quilt so I could say “you have crabs in your bed”. A funny joke for a college freshman, probably not as funny for a crib quilt.

The only saving grace, in my opinion, is the red blanket binding. I think the key to blanket binding is a darker color, last time I used pink blanket binding and the print showed right through, not the case for the red.
