A Baby Quilt.

Posted on | March 19, 2023 | 10 Comments

Lots of babies are on the way for friends in the form of grandchildren. So a few little quilts will be needed as gifts. I thought it would be easier to make several at once. So this is the first one.

This is an Amy Bradley panel from way back. It was simply waiting for the right time. I kept it easy by adding a thin green inner border and then the striped outside border.

I kept the quilting simple but made sure it would stand up to a good wash in the machine and then a turn in the dryer. I know most quilts are now used as play mats, so they have to handle regular washing.

The striped border was from the same range as the panel. And I has more of the range for the backing. Surprising what is hiding in the stash.

Purple was the right colour for the binding, again from stash.

Quilting consisted of straight line, meandering and outlining.

That’s one down and a couple more to go.

It is great to use up favourite fabrics and make something special to give.

Back to the sewing machine. Cheers, Karen
