Wholecloth Baby Quilt

Wholecloth, my hand-dyed fabric, my design, freehand quilting, … is there more to say?

For a sweet great-nephew who has been waiting awhile for his quilt.

100% cotton top, 100% Hobbs cotton batting, 100% cotton flannel on the back.  So warm & cuddly as I hand-sewed the binding down in the evenings.

Baby Quilts x 2

One blessed grandma had both a granddaughter and a grandson due this summer.  She was great in getting quilts made for each of them before they arrived.
This is a beautiful fabric line in reds and tans with sweet small floral prints.  It is really pretty!

And the little man has a bright quilt with trucks and signs and all sorts of fun toys to see.

Both quilts are backed with minkee and are lightly quilted at her request.   They are so cuddly!  And the baby pictures have been so very cute!

Embroidered Baby Quilt

SP is new to quilting but a pro at embroidery!  She saw this idea at a quilt show and together we worked out the instructions for cutting.   Her embroidery is perfect!  🙂

It is 45″ square with 6″ blocks and 6″ Nine-Patch blocks.

The pieced blocks have a freehand quilt design that coordinates with the border quilting.  I added meander quilting around the embroidery.

A new border…. and I like it!  🙂  I used a pastel variegated thread with a touch of shimmer to it.  Love the effect of Superior Rainbows thread!!

I added the binding for her and our mutual friend is hand-stitching it to the back as we speak!   I think this is a lovely baby gift!! ♥
