Time for a Baby Quilt! from TheEclecticAbuela

 My niece has a new (big!) baby boy, so you know what I did--made a flannel baby quilt!

Baby Quilt--36" x 54"


The red flannel is printed with a funny assortment of animals (cows, horses, owls, foxes, giraffes, elephants, and dinosaurs--dinosaurs?!?). I think the fabric designer asked some kids what their favorite animals were, rather than sticking with a theme.

Happy Valentine's Day from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


So yesterday, I said I might have to move to a smaller house. Elle pointed out that I might like to walk around my existing home (with less stuff) and enjoy it. And you know what? She's right! It's such a joy to walk around with ease in the same space where I had to hop over things to get from A to B. I know - not safe, and how ridiculous. Or something would fall off a shelf if I passed too near. 

I have to confess that I even opened the door to that storage room several ...

Positively Pineapple quilts from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Let's start with some follow-up. You are all the best out there. I've got suggestions for acquiring book series to read and "approval" to keep the mistake in the blue string quilt! And I'm now the proud owner of the instructions for the Pineapple Rule. Remember that??

Pineapple Rule

Thanks to Jane for that. I should have contacted her first. For whatever reason, and we won't go there, but Jane seems to acquired EVERY ruler that was ever made. At a guild garage sale a few years back, I remember that she sold a few of ...

Tom's Big-Boy Quilt from TheEclecticAbuela

 I like to make a flannel baby quilt for additions to the family.

Here is my grand-nephew's baby quilt.

Safari Baby

Once kids get big enough for a bed (rather than a crib), I like to make them a big-boy or big-girl quilt.

This big-boy quilt started with the backing--I wanted to use this Thomas (as in Tank Engine) fabric since my grand-nephew's name is Thomas.


I didn't know how I wanted to do the front, but the RR crossing sign gave me the idea to use Xs.

baby quilt finish from Making A Lather

 I have emptied a project box with this finish. I finished flannel #2 his week. It feels so good to move another UFo to done. I finished flannel #1 last week as part rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy.

46x58- 7 yards of fabric

I found an old blog post about the pattern including a share it  of my copy of the pattern. It's a great pattern to use for a baby quilt and/or a donation quilt.

flannel quilts and a finish from Making A Lather

My ufo # 2 and #3 for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy was 2 pink flannel baby quilts. I didn't know, when I opened the box, if I had just collected the fabric, or, had it cut for what I needed. I saw labels on the fabric, so I was excited to learn it was already cut and ready to sew.

there are 2 quilts cut out in the box

I had all the letters I needed for the pattern -quilt #1

I arranged them on tray with all the letters showing

I have looked all over the ...

Study In Softness: Marybeth's Flannel-Backed Baby Quilt from Cheeky Cognoscenti

I just finished quilting this sweet and snuggly-soft baby quilt for my friend Marybeth.  Her #1 priority was keeping the quilting light enough so the quilt would be as soft as possible for tucking around a little one in a stroller.  Isn't it sweet?

Marybeth's Snuggly-Soft Baby Quilt

We chose the pantograph Gingersnap from Urban Elementz and I adjusted the pattern density in my IntelliQuilter to where the scale of the double circles complemented the scale of Marybeth's pieced squares and HSTs.  The thread is Glide in a pale blue color called Cloud.  

Gingersnap Pantograph from Urban ...

baby flannel from Making A Lather

I had a jelly roll of flannel, that, I have moved from place to place, until, I was tired of it. I decided I would just use the treadle at night to do a baby quilt with it. It wasn't supposed to be an official project. I was just sewing the strips together. But, it was across the couch for awhile, until, I was tired of it. The only way I could put it away, was to get it ready for quilting. geesh

It wasn't very big, so it just had to have borders. These are not the ...

All the Stockings Were Hung... from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Both Teri and I (Kara) have been working on all things stocking lately. Our Cardinals Christmas Stocking was released earlier in the week, and now we would like to introduce our Floral Christmas Stocking!

This flannel and wool stocking is simple in its color scheme but is full of little details that give it a unique charm. All the simple embroidery is done with Weeks DyeWorks crewel wool, giving the stocking a lot of texture. We have a limited number of kits available that include the flannel, wool, ribbon hanger, and a whole skein of the Weeks crewel wool. All ...

September OMG done from Quilting & Learning

Hi! I'm cutting it pretty close but they are done - my niece's curtains for her cottage bedroom. These are my September One Monthly Goal (OMG). 

Tab top curtains in buffalo red & black plaid flannel

This was the first time that I made tab top curtains. In my curtain making days, we made a sleeve to pull it though. These curtains weren't very difficult but I'm really glad that I didn't have to buy a pattern. YouTube can be pretty wonderful.

Buffalo red and black plaid flannel curtains

Farmhouse Flannels II: Detailed list for Hometime quilt from Carried Away Quilting

After releasing my new pattern, Hometime, I received requests for the details on which fabrics I used for my sample quilt. You know that I used the new Farmhouse Flannels II collection by Primitive Gatherings for Moda, but I didn’t list out each SKU number. Since that fabric collection is now available in stores, I thought I’d share that information with you!

Listed below are the fabric requirements for the top and binding of the Hometimequilt, along with the particular SKUs I used. The Moda swatch page for Farmhouse Flannels II is also helpful!

New pattern: Hometime from Carried Away Quilting

Earlier this spring I shared a graduation quilt I made using the new Farmhouse Flannels II collection by Primitive Gatherings for Moda. The colors in this collection are warm, earthy and masculine, and the prints include an assortment of traditional plaid, stripe and houndstooth. It’s the perfect collection for a striking guy quilt! When my son saw the quilt I had made, he piped up and said he needed a new quilt too . . . and out of the same fabric! That is music to a quilting mom’s ears, isn’t it? I was so inspired by Luke’s request ...

Scrappy Sewing {Flannel Burp Cloths} from Little Bunny Quilts

As I mentioned in some of my recent posts, one of my sewing goals for The Great Stay Home Marathon is reorganizing my sewing room. I use flannel for backing baby quilts, but I often end up with flannel scraps that I don't know what to do with a lot of the time. However, there is another impending baby boom in my circle of friends (four babies between June and November!) I decided to pull out the flannel scraps and make some really simple burp cloths.

There are a lot of different burp cloth tutorials out there and I ...

From creative family and friends from Sew Sunshine

My lovely niece Lisa made this fabulous scene. The tall white tree was cut with her Cricut machine. So were the framed picture and the tiny bits that make up those cool balls. These are all so wonderful. Like a wonderland!  I like to think I am creative with my quilting but this was all another level that i just had to share. 

Also recently my last post was on the test quilt "Eternal Moment' That I did for Simone Quilts. Read about it HERE 
Her pattern is in the last issue of Make Modern Magazine. I thought I would ...

Baby Girl Quilt for Olivia from Studio Dragonfly Quilts

This commission quilt was made for a coworker and friend who is expecting her first grandchild. One of the requirements was that it not have too much pink as the mom is not fond of all pink for her baby girl. However, purple was most definitely acceptable and I was fortunate to find this cozy cotton flannel fat quarter bundle by Studio RK for Robert Kaufman. Another request was to personalize the quilt with the baby's full name. I "purpled out" the last name for security reasons. 

Typically, I print a label onto fabric using my inkjet printer but ...
