A Week of Baby Quilts…

It seems to be a week of baby quilts lately. There seems to be

a baby explosion around here. Arlene has completed her second

baby quilt.

Arlene’s Quilt

I think that Arlene is covering all her bases by creating 2 baby quilts, just to make

sure she has one on hand for whatever sex the baby is when he/she is born. Smart

grandma!

Close up

I love the colors that Arlene used and she is so precise in her piecing. She chose

a simple all over design called “Popcorn.” It has alot of curves so it works well

with all the straight line piecing and blocks.

The backing

Doesn’t the fabric make the quilt? I love the backing material used here.

Cute fabric

A white polyester thread was used for the top and the backing.

Anne’s BAby Quilt

Anne is also expecting some new grandbabies as well. Being the smart grandma

that she is, she also made 2 baby quilts  as well. This is the second one.

The colors are very soothing and the same panto-“Popcorn” was also

used for the quilting.

The backing

I used a light blue polyester thread for the top and the backing.

“Popcorn” panto

The quilting design is really visible on the back of the quilt.

Linda’s Quilt

Linda has been busy completing these next 2 quilts.   She chose a light grey

polyester thread for the top and a dark blue polyester thread for the backing.

“Brocade” is the name of the panto used for the quilting design.

The backing shows up the quilting nicely as well.

Around The World Quilt

LInda also owns this quilt. The same panto was used on this quilt as well.

A light cream polyester thread was used for the top and the backing as well.

The backing

The backing of the  quilt is similar to the floral fabric on the top of the

quilt.

Try checking out the Needle and Thread Network; a Canadian site

dedicated to Canadian quilters and textile artists. Have a great week.
