Sunny, happy unisex baby quilt

    I wanted to make a unisex baby quit in bright, sunny colors. Things have been so busy at work lately and a few tough things have happened to people around me that I found myself craving happy colors.    These big blocks went together very quickly. The white border helps to focus the eye…

Zoofari Baby Quilts – Easy!

I bought this awesome Zoofari line of fabric close to two years ago, planning to make a baby quilt for a friend. She had wanted blue and green, so I thought this would be perfect, but she wanted LIGHT blue and LIGHT green. So, this fabric, along with the brown/orange color way, was added to…

It is a Jungle Out There!

Just shipped out this adorable jungle-themed baby quilt. I actually made one of these a few weeks ago thinking it would sell as a quilt for a baby boy. At the show there were two people interested in it so I offered to make another one. This one is for a baby girl and it…

All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go

I used to belong to a quilling guild in upstate NY and we made quilts for charity. I set a personal goal if making 12 charity quilts this year. They come together quickly using charm packs and leftover blocks and I think everyone, especially babies, should have a handmade quilt. I have three ready to…

Scrappy Baby Quilt

I love pink, scraps, and simple quilts. This one gives me all of it – lots of pink, postage stamp style 2.5″ squares, and an adorable baby quilt. I am cutting scraps in every color and hope to have lots of them available for the spring craft shows. I think they will look impressive when…
