Baby Quilts

I have been sewing just a little bit, making two simple baby quilts.

This small baby quilt, 36×36, is simply snowball blocks using animal alphabet fabric and nine patches that always start with a light square top left. Perhaps there actually is a name for that block. Fabrics were in my stash and needed to be used. It’s quilted with Hearts A Flutter pantograph. It will go to The Children’s Center through my Guild.

The back is leftover white and animal fabric strips.

The flower baby quilt is larger, 40×42. Flower shapes were cut using an Accuquilt Go and machine appliquéd to white fabric. I did a swirl background fill around the flowers and hooked feathers in the flower fabric. I needed to stitch around the flower centers. Don’t know why I didn’t because I always do. Probably just hurrying. This one will be a gift for my next door neighbor.

This is Carolyn’s Dresden Plate quilt for a granddaughter. Last one I’ll quilt for a customer for this year. I try to take December off each year as decorating the house and baking cookies fills up my days.

Pantograph is Ambrosia quilted with a light lavender A&E Permacore thread.

Max and Beau were groomed this week. This is Beau, my pretty baby.

Yes, once again I have two customer quilts to show.

First is Marian’s Pine Tree. Isn’t this a perfect fall quilt? Quilted it with Pine Trees pantograph. I’d like to snuggle under this one since today is a rainy and cold day.

Or we could board a jet plane and go to Hawaii. Barbara’s Hawaiian quilt is quilted with Ebb and Flow which gives it such a wavy, water effect.

Next time I have some recent simple projects of my own to share with you.

First up is Nancy’s Quilt. The fabrics are soft and lovely and this one definitely has an old time feel with modern design. Pantograph is Variety which is a large flowing design. It is best used on this type of quilt top where there are pieced blocks with little pieces.

Next is Betty’s Star Quilt. Blue and yellow are such cheerful colors and she did a great job on a difficult star to piece. Pantograph is Feather Fancy.

Thanks quilters for letting me quilt your quilt top.

I need to postpone posts of more pictures from our quilt show to post pictures of my customer’s quilts. They’re beginning to pile up!

First is Marian’s pumpkin patch. Perfect for this time of year. This has a freehand allover design of pumpkins and leaves.

Barbara’s Christmas Quilt. For some reason, the red looks orange, but that cardinal and border is actually red.

Nancy’s sweet quilt

The edge that is standing up is the binding. I machine sewed it on and Nancy will do the hand sewing.

Marian also has two of our Guild’s mystery quilts.

Okay. I’m exaggerating. I didn’t plan on two posts about our mini vacation but I was traumatized!

When we arrived at the cabin, I was driving. So the first time driving on the road to the cabin, I didn’t have a clue what was ahead. It’s over a mile long and you feel like you’re on this road for a long time since you’re going 2 miles an hour. The road is steep so the car is angled up and you can’t see the turn because you’re looking at the sky. I would stop, stretch to look over the hood to see where the road was and then proceed. The rest of the time Craig drove. Being 6’4″ he could see more than I could.

I took pictures going down. Believe me. Doesn’t do it justice. The worst time was coming back from the ASU football game, in the dark.

Keep in mind, that road is in some places barely the width of the car.

Here’s a the art quilts and miniature quilts from the show.
