FOUR BABY QUILTS

Once again, I'm woefully behind on my blog, but I've been sewing a lot! Our Church has been having a baby boom in the last year and we host a shower for the Moms who have their first babies.  I try to make a quilt for each of the babies.  Here are the four quilts:

This was a really fun quilt to make.  Emily's baby, Sawyer, has an elephant print in his room so this was the perfect fabric for his quilt :-).

I couldn't decide on which colour to bind it with so I used both colours.  I just did a simple straight line quilting to give it a modern look.


I didn't have enough elephants to do the back so used the rest of the blue as well.
This quilt was for Esther's baby, Mika.  It is a pattern by Christy Marnell of Blue Underground Studios, Inc. called, Posh Tot.  I thought it would be a great pattern to practise some free motion quilting and ruler work.  It took quite awhile, but was fun to do. 

I quilted 5 different motifs in the squares and repeated each one three times.

Again, I had to piece the back as I didn't have quite enough of the Lotus leaf print from the Kaffe Fasset Collective.

This quilt was so much fun to make.  It's a pattern from Lorna McMahon of Sew Fresh Quilts.  It was made for Teresa's new baby, Spencer.

Fox block #2

I almost had enough of this cute fox print for the back so another pieced backing.

Unfortunately this photo is a little washed out.  It's the same pattern as the first quilt above.  I've misplaced the pattern and will update the information when I find it!  This quilt was made for Lisa's new baby girl, June.
I quilted this one with a feather flower pattern with pink thread.

The backing and binding coordinated perfectly with the Kaffe Fasset Lotus Leaf print.

What great baby quilts. I know they will be appreciated. We have 2 more ladies with babies due, at church (both ladies in my class, too). I'll have to get some baby quilts done soon.
