Baby Quilt #1 finished!

Two of my DD's friends are having babies this month. When I agreed to make baby quilts the deadline was still far off. Not any more!

The first one is finished, and I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. I used Kristy Daum's tutorial for Modern D9P, found here .  I did as Kristy suggests, and played with fabrics and layouts to make it "mine".


Instead of a single white background, I used lots of different white on whites and a few other low volumes. I like the effect. I also increased the number of background squares to give it more negative space.


The backing is white Minky, and the binding is a narrow stripe in navy blue, just right for a little boy I hope!


The quilting is freehand Baptist fans. I love the effect, and I really enjoyed doing the quilting.


This was a quick and fun baby quilt to make.

  1. Oooh, I love those fans! That's one design I really want to learn to quilt.

  2. This quilt is fabulous! Anything Lotta Jansdotter is wonderful, but I love them in the DP9 format, especially with the layout you picked. It's great! :)


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you. Really!
