Baby Quilts

Joan brought me this adorable baby quilt, that was made using a

pre printed panel.


These panels make quick work of creating a baby quilt. Joan wanted

some custom stitching done of the top and I had lots of fun fulfilling that

wish for her.


I quilted around all the motifs on the panel and matched thread color

to each motif. In the palm trees, I used a Glide green thread. The thread

really shines and glistens; it was the first thing Joan noticed when

she looked at the quilt.


In the bottom border, I quilted grass to resemble the grass

that was on the panel, in the area beneath the animals.


On both sides of the panel, I quilted in ferns which was on the

panel as well. Sometimes, the panel or fabric will give you a

clue as to what to stitch on the quilt.


On the top of the  panel, I quilted in palm leaves. They are my

favorite part of this outside border.

As usual, the backing tells its own story too. I love the lime green

fabric. The stitching really shows up because a variegated King Tut

thread was used.



The backing is alot of fun as well.

The second baby quilt is adorable as well.


The fabric in this baby quilt is really quite classy.  Marilyne

wanted this quilt to be extra special so she wanted it custom



In the 9 patch, I outlined the square and then stitched in

curvy lines. The solid colored blocks beside it have a nice

feather wreath in it.


I cheated when it came to quilting this feathered

wreath. Can you believe that I actually had a

stencil that fit this space  perfectly?  All I had to

do was mark the feathers and stitch away. I used

an air erasable pen to mark the wreath.

I love the feathers and they dress up this quilt beautifully.


The outside border also has feathers in it. They are hard to see

due to the printed fabric but they are there.

I used a taupe polyester thread for the top and on the backing,

I used a white polyester thread.


The backing fabric shows up the quilting a little more, in

the outer border.


Even the backing has a classy feel to it.

Marilyne did a  beautiful job on the piecing. Everything

laid flat and square.  Someone is receiving a very special

baby quilt.

Have a great Easter.
