Ready. Set. Go! Baby Quilt

Island Batik industry partner, AccuQuilt, surprised each 2019 Island Batik ambassador, with a Ready. Set. Go! Ultimate Fabric Cutting System!  I was thrilled and anxious to try the Qube.


Ambassador challenge - Design a baby quilt with Island Batik provided fabric using Qube 8 dies included in the Ready. Set. Go! cutting system.


I used the Qube 8-inch Mix & Match set to cut fabrics for 10-inch finished blocks.  Yep, I went off road!  LOL :-D The Bazaar collection looks amazing against basic grey.


The pattern, Square Dance, is made with two blocks. Square Dance was design ...

Jack's Basket baby quilts from Art In Search

     Every year, Sarah Craig, of Confessions of a Fabric Addict, has an event called Hands2Help. Different groups are listed every year for quilt donations. In the past, I have been fortunate to make quilts to give to one of the groups. Last year, I made a quilt, but couldn't quilt it due to my heart attack, and Sarah graciously quilted it and donated it for me.
     This year, new, is Jack's Basket. It is a group that celebrates Down's syndrome babies and gives a basket of goodies to the family. One of the items is a 36 ...

Ready, Set, Go! {Last blocks and Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

I've managed to finish up all 25 blocks for my Island Batik Ambassador challenge for this month!

For the last blocks, I needed to mix in a few more black fabrics, but I ended up using only two different pink fabrics for my blocks.

Here are the last of the blocks:

In the process of making all of the blocks, I made sure to press my blocks such that it would be very, very easy to nest seams in the blocks as I put the quilt top together.

Now my quilt is a lovely 40 inches square (as specified ...

Blogger Bundle Baby Quilt Top from Goer

Last year, Bernie from Needle and Foot had a series of blogger bundles featuring fabrics from her shop. I curated this bundle of five fabrics to kickoff her series in January 2018, and in December I still had only made two of the four blocks I designed for my bundle.

I participated in Miss Love's Finishing School for Winter session in January 20 through March 16 of this year. We each identified eight projects for the eight weeks which we wanted to make progress on. I previously shared that I put my Swoon project in two of the slots ...

I Use Cute Fabric from The Snarky Quilter

My seemingly bottomless trove of cut squares was useful for creating a baby coverlet for our newest impending family member. Since I didn’t know the baby’s sex when I started, I opted for the always safe yellow and green for … Continue reading

My first baby quilt on Throwback Thursday from Quilting & Learning

Welcome to Throwback Thursday. I'm co-hosting with Sandra from mmm! quilts. We will take turns hosting on alternate months.

My first baby quilt

My son was looking for something in his closet last weekend and took out his first baby quilt. I made it with my mother in 1991! We picked out a cute dinosaur wallpaper border and made the quilt from the design.

My first baby quilt - made with my mother (1991)

I don't really remember making the quilt but I do remember making the matching skirt and bumper pads for the crib - so it's possible ...

A Bonnie & Camille Color Pop Baby Quilt | #Finishit2019 Number Five from Canoe Ridge Creations

There's no such thing as too many baby quilts, right? I mean, it only makes sense that Harper would have ALL THE QUILTS - she is my daughter after all. Spoiler Alert: this scrappy Bonnie & Camille quilt didn't start out as a baby's just where it ended. 

I just love Cluck Cluck Sew's patterns - not only is Allison Harris a true gem, but her designs are fun and fresh. So it should come as no surprise that I instantly fell in love with her Color Pop pattern she released in the Fall of 2018. Scrappy ...

Ready, Set, Go! Challenge with Accuquilt and Island Batik {Baby Quilt Beginnings} from Little Bunny Quilts

Being an Island Batik Ambassador for the last three years has been an amazing experience with some pretty nice perks (Fabric! Thread! Batting! Connections with new quilters!) and this year Accuquilt has graciously given us a Go! Fabric cutter starter kit (not an affiliate link). So this month, our challenge is to use our cutters and dies to make a baby quilt! 

One of my fellow Ambassadors, Connie, already posted her finished quilt, but her post has a great photo line up of all that came in our starter kits from Accuquilt.

Asking me to make a baby quilt is ...

BABY O BABIES! from Kwilty Pleasures

My step daughter has several friends having babies!
She asked me if I make baby  quilts for
3 little girls due early 2019!
I agreed to help her out as long as she would pick fabrics
from my stash.  I have lots of novelty baby prints to use.

First up was a February baby and the sea creatures
would work...but could I make the blue green fabrics
look more girlie by adding some PINK!

Nailed it!

I cut apart a large piece of the novelty
to make the fish and whales into their own blocks.
Added a frame and ...

Another Baby Quilt! from The Quilt Yarn

This must be the year for babies...I am in need of another baby quilt! I only got baby girl quilts that are already finished, so I was looking for a very quick project that I could just throw together. Initially I was looking for a panel, but could not find anything that I really liked. When I was at a recent quilt show, I discovered a packet of fabric, already cut up into 6 1/2in strips. Bought that and cut it up into squares and just mixed some applique hearts with it. 

Very blue and cutesy ...

Island Batik Vintage Reimagined from Goer

The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik and Aurifil.

This month we were asked to use a vintage quilt block as inspiration for our Island Batik Ambassador projects. I considered this challenge an opportunity to use Modern Traditionalism in my design, using a traditional block with some twist to modernize the look of it.

I chose the Antique Tile quilt block to work from. I shared my design process in a previous post, but these digital images show the block I started with and the mockup for the quilt that I made.

By Your Side Finish from Dizzy Quilts

I seem to have been able to find some sense of balance between work, home and my need to sit at my sewing machine for a few hours every week. And as a result, I managed to finish another project last week.

Here is By Your Side.

Isn't she pretty? I love that I used scraps for the coloured blocks, I love all that negative space and I love the quilting I did on it.

I used binding scraps to finish her off - I started keeping all my left over binding and then stitching it together as I get ...

Twirls and Stripes {Finished Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

It's time to show off my finished vintage inspired quilt and compare it to its inspiration!

My finished quilt:

The original quilt:

After finishing the quilt, I decided to see if I had any Hobbs batting in my Island Batik Ambassador box that would be the right size for my 40 x 48 baby quilt -- and I was in luck! As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics and Hobbs batting to use and share with you!

In my box, I had a crib size (45" x 60") cotton batting ...

Rocking Horse Baby Quilt from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

After I made this baby quilt: I knew I'd be making more using the pattern:                                               So I pulled another fabric I have been hoarding for probably at least 6-8 years:                           I didn't have much of it, but this pattern allowed me to make good use of what I DID have                                 And I turned it into this little

Easy Baby Quilt With Nature In Mind from Studio Dragonfly Quilts

 I'm going to a baby shower this weekend for a coworker who is about to be a first time grandmother. When she first told us the news, she added that she had already purchased baby items with a camouflage and a John Deere theme. 

That meant this quilt had to represent the outdoors as best I could.

This almost camo fabric was the inspiration for all the others. At first there were some bolder prints in there but they were too distracting. The subtle prints in browns, greens, and golds did the trick.

Each block includes a 5x8 inch ...

Flock of Geese Quilt Finish & Kit from Needle and Foot

As you may know, I began to stock a fun selection of modern quilt patterns in the shop a few months ago. I have been working on building up a variety of patterns so that my customers will have plenty to select from. So far, I am carrying patterns by Meadow Mist Designs, Bonjour Quilts, Devoted Quilter, Quilting Jetgirl, and – most recently – Cooking Up Quilts. There has been really good response to these and I am enjoying seeing the gorgeous patterns from these talented designers.

2019 – Squares in Squares from Lotus Cove Quilting

Here’s a view of my design wall today. This project is using lots of fabrics from my stash. Only purchase so far was one yard for the center squares. The blocks should finish 12″ square, making a single-sized quilt.


Squares In Squares on Design Wall

Note on design walls: I used anti-pill fleece on this wall, wrapped over insulation panels. Fleece holds much better than flannel. Completed blocks would rarely stick to my old flannel wall unless I pinned them. No problem with the fleece.

Accidental Baby Quilt from Tea Rose Home

Have you seen the cute fabric line Gretel designed by my sweet friend Amy Smart for Riley Blake designs? I had a chance to work with them and I made a quilt top a few weeks ago. What? the quilt up above? NO. That isn't it. The picture below is the quilt top I made first. For some reasons, my dog always shows up from nowhere when I start taking pictures of my quilt and gets in the pictures. Sorry if you are not a doggy lover. ;) It is not quilted yet, but I love how it turned out ...

My Tribe at Last from Gray Barn Designs

Oh happy day – it’s official—I am a proud new member of the Catherine Schuyler chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Yippee! A 40-year goal finally completed!

As I’ve mentioned before, my fascination with this group began when I was in high school. I loved history then (and now) and I remember asking my parents if we had any “patriots” in our family tree. Since my mother’s family emigrated from Bavaria after the American Civil War, I hit a non-productive branch of the family tree early on. But my father’s family has been in ...
