oh baby

 I've been working double time on getting as many baby quilts made as I can lately. 

I love how quickly you can assemble one. Almost instant gratification!

Here are a few I've finished recently.

This is one of my favourite baby quilt patterns. 
It takes just 4 FQs and a wee bit of yardage and in no time flat, baby quilt.

I used a FQ stack of this line and ended up with three quilts. Yay!


I did each quilt a wee bit different. These first two are lovely soft pastels.


Those Grunge borders. Love

This last one turned out even better than I expected.
Such gorgeous fabrics.


And you knew I was going to do a chevron quilt ;)


And started on another.














quilt monday

 I have a real love for chevron quilts. And chevron baby quilts?

Yes please! I've made so many of these out of the same fabrics that I had enough leftover hsts to make this little table runner.


I love the simplicity of the colours with the pattern.
It makes it so much more striking.


I kept the quilting simple and did a stipple. 

That subtle grey print.


I loooooooooved these fabrics. 
I finished of the bolt on both and used up every single piece.


Simple muslin on the backing. 
It looks so crisp and fresh.

And just because, one of the baby quilts.


Happy Monday!

quilt monday

 Short and sweet today. 

I was going through the pictures on my computer(I've filled the memory again) and realized I hadn't shown this picture from last Christmas. 

My favourite print and my favourite quilt block 
and a cute little table runner


I kept the quilting really simple and went with a meander.


I wish I could remember what line this print was from.
 I bought it a few years ago on an after Christmas sale and snatched up the rest of the bolt.

I also used one of my favourite blenders for the backing.


I only have one planned project for Christmas. 
And it's a Tshirt quilt so I really need to get started on it.


Happy Monday!









quilt monday

 Earlier this year, I was asked if I wanted to be a part of a group donating gift baskets to new moms. The idea came about due to covid and new moms feeling lonely and unsupported with quarantine and social distancing guidelines. And Rising Mama Collective was born.

I loved the idea and signed up right away. I love making baby quilts and had quite a few on hand that I donated over. I've been making baby quilts almost weekly since.

This was one quilt I've seen on and off on Pinterest for a few years. I finally decided to go ahead and make a version of my own.

I contacted Erica at Studio39; sent her a picture and fabric requirements and let her do her thing.

 Then I did mine.

quilted with Laurie

Originally I wanted a large lap quilt. But quickly changed my mind to a smaller one to drape over my favourite chair. That meant I had a lot of extra squares and was able to make this second quilt for the Rising Mama Collective. 


I had just enough of the dark grey for the binding. I had hoped I could find more of the mustard but none of my local LQS had it and I didn't want to wait for any via the mail.
I'm getting close to the end of my Joanns bolts of baby flannel, I was able to piece enough together to back this one.


If you are local to me and would like to donate to Rising Mama, feel free to send me a message. You won't regret it.


Happy Monday.
