Baby Quilt

While searching for another project I found this baby quilt top. It was packed away with the batting and the backing so I decided to sandwich it together and quilt it. I probably made the top 2 or 3 years ago, so I guess it was time to finish it up, don't you agree?! This one will be donated at my next quilt guild meeting. My guild donates baby quilts to our local hospital and also to a children's home.

It measures about 30 inches X 42 inches.

Twin Quilts

A friend requested quilts for her twin grandchildren. She chose the colors and I made the quilts. These quilts turned out sweet! They measure about 54 inches square.

The backs are grey tone on tone prints.

The babies have arrived and are healthy! I can't wait to get pictures of these little ones with their quilts <3 p="">

More finishes in April

I had a pretty good quilting month in April! My favorite finish was the K quilt. This was a collaborative effort. My sister messaged me in February I believe and said "let's make our sister something for her birthday" which is in April. So she suggested a wall hanging made of "K's" (our sister's name starts with K). I thought that was a good idea so I whipped up two K blocks and then I said "why don't we make a quilt?" And so my sister made half the blocks and I made half the blocks and then I mailed my blocks to her. The K's are various solids and the backgrounds are all fabrics that make us think of our sister. She put them together and while she did that I pieced the back. I opted to just pull all the red fabrics I had and I used them. Red is my sister's favorite color. I added the appliqué 40 for interest and fun. My sister mailed the top back to me and I took it to the long arm quilter. We chose to have it quilted with a star pattern which made us think of fireworks and celebration. I bound it in a solid deep red. I really love how this quilt turned out! I loved collaborating with my sister. I loved picking fabrics that made me think of my other sister. We gifted it to my sister and she loved it!! It measures 56 inches X 70 inches. My only regret was that we finished after March quilt guild and gifted it before the April guild meeting so I didn't get to take it for show and tell. Lol! This was such a fun project!
