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 appliqu├ęd 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.

Love Dr Seuss – Brightens My Day

The first part of the title is LOVE.

This “Quilt of Love” was made by the Sandhills Quilters Guild. It was given to a Guild member this past week because her husband passed away. It’s how our Guild shows that our members care about each other.

Blocks made by members of the Guild. Quilted by my friend, Jackie. The hearts in the middle of the heart block are perfect.

Dr. Seuss is next – rather a Dr. Seuss character called Lorax. I’m not familiar with him but I love this quilt anyway. The alternate blocks really set off the preprinted blocks. Would love to make it for grandchildren. You can purchase the kit (or fabric and pattern) from Linderella’s. Quilted with bubbles pantograph. I love how playful it looks.

The last quilt is springy and comforting, really brightens my day. Betty had leftover Moda squares and some magnolia fabric. She very cleverly combined them in this simple row quilt. The setting is so effective for these fabrics. Quilted using Anne Bright pattern called “blooming “feathers.”
