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.
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.
It has been waaaaaaay too long since I've done a show and tell post and I have so many great quilts to show you. Sit back and enjoy!
This fabulous quilt by Val,
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.
I've seen some interesting things in my 14years of longarm quilting.
But this may have been the most interesting.
I got a call from Helene.
Helene has sheep and wanted to use their wool for her quilt. Would I do it?
Helene brought out the wool and I'll admit, I wouldn't have guessed it was 'homemade'. Well, not exactly homemade. The sheep get sheared and Helene washes the wool a minimum of 7 times; combing the wool each time to get all the bits and pieces out of it.
It then goes to a factory where they batt the wool.
The catch? The wool needs fluffed before it can be used.
And fluffed A LOT.
