Baby Quilt # 2 Finished

My last post showed you pictures of a baby quilt made using lots of low volume prints and white on white with a little Echo and some other brights.

I'm glad to announce that I've finished the second quilt too! The format is similar, Modernized D9P per the tutorial by Kristy Daum found here .

It's so much fun moving the blocks about to find the layout you like the best. I'm sure no two quilts could ever be the same.

 This time I used oranges and yellows from a charm square swap, a very little Kate Spain, and a  touch of Echo.

It's backed in white Minky, and I quilted it all over in a design called Paisley.

The border is an orange and white print from my stash, just perfect I think!

Here's the back showing the lovely soft Minky and the quilting.

Till next time,

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.
