Baby Quilt Top Finished

Yeah – the baby quilt top is finished although those black squares are really dark purple.

041115 (845x1024)Since Baby Girl is due the middle of May this top needs to be a completed quilt soonish.  I plan on machine quilting Succulent from the Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting book on this quilt.

In the interest of being honest, I have to admit that this is not my favorite quilt.  However it is a great baby quilt to be used and abused.

It is time to find some backing and cut the batting.

Blockhead Quilt Progress

I have been busy working on the Christmas gift Baby Blockhead quilt.  This is what my design wall looked like on Friday morning –

121513A  (768x1024)and this is where I am now – stitching the binding on.

121513B  (1024x768)I am very pleased with the progress made this weekend, but now I have a date with Charlton Heston in Ben-Hur along with my thread and needle.

Birthday Baby Quilt

071713    (745x1024)My Mom enjoyed making baby quilts like this one.  It has french knots on the white eyelet and is hand quilted.

071713A  (767x1024)I think that this was originally intended to be a stuffed doll, but it sure is an adorable quilt.  The back side of the doll went on the back of the quilt.

071713B   (741x1024)I feel connected to Mom when I look at this quilt.

While my Mom liked handwork, my preference is piecing.  My current project is this birthday Blockhead quilt.

071713C  (1024x936)

It needs to be finished by next Wednesday – wish me luck.

Baby Quilt Finished

I did it!  All three of my quilting goals for April have been completed.  Here is the finished baby quilt.

042913    (967x1024)I quilted 1/4″ inside all of the blocks and did a square loop design in the white & border.042913A    (1024x768)I found 1/4 yard of this fabric for the sleeve.  Isn’t it perfect?

042913B    (1024x768)This quilt was so much fun to make.  I may need to make another one.

Baby Quilt Progress Report

The baby quilt top is finished.  It measures 43″ x 43.75″.

042613    (1017x1024)When or if I make this pattern again, I think that I will look for some striped fabric for the borders.  Right now this one needs to be completed and I have already decided on quilting designs, so I need to get busy.

Happy Friday,

Baby Quilt

I have been busy on the third project for April – a baby quilt.

042513   (1024x815)The pattern is called Blockhead Baby Quilt by Allegory Lanham.  It is a free pattern found here on the Moda Bake Shop site.

I am making several changes to this pattern.  My baby quilt will be bigger, the blocks are stacked differently, and I am planning to use fabric marker on the face instead of applique/embroidery.

This quilt needs to be finished by next Tuesday, so I had better get busy.
