Just for the Babies

It must be spring, there are lots of babies on their way. No grand-babies though. I have to admit I don't make baby quilts just for anyone.  Most people don't realize how much time, effort and $$ are involved in creating a quilt.  So you need to pick your recipients carefully.

Here's a mini quilt show of the baby quilts that are done and just waiting for their new owners to arrive.

This one was fun using Ricky Tims' convergence method of piecing.  It was made with 4 different fat quarters.  It's bright and bold and full of life.

This Chinese Coin pattern was made with a charm pack from a line of fabric called Whimsy.   A perfect name for the quilt.

This Animal Alphabet quilt was a quilt of convenience.  It's a panel with a few borders.  Nothing could be easier or cuter.  It will be warm and cuddly because it's flannel.

Another Charming Chinese Coin.  I hope somebody has a girl.  The fabrics I used were from a line called "Love U".

This quilt was also made from the same "Love U" line.  It's fun how different they look.  The pattern is from the book Warm Welcome by Mary Hickey.  It has some delightful ideas.

I named this one "Wild Pony".  It has found a home already with a baby girl.  Her parents love horses and the borders are colorful wild ponies.   The pattern is also from the book Warm Welcome.

I've sewn and quilted all of these since the first of the year.  I still  have one more cut out and ready to be sewn, another one as a pile of fabrics, and one ready to be quilted.  Once I get those done I should be ready for WHO ever comes next!

Until Next Time-Kyle
