Baby E’s Quilt

It was such a thrill to work on this quilt.  One of my dear friends gave birth to beautiful Baby E.  They decided to wait to see if Baby E was going to be a boy or girl until the birth…so I needed to make it unisex. 

Baby E also has an awesome older brother so I wanted to make it a nice size so they can lay together on it.  The quilt measures about 45″ x 45″.

The back is pieced with strips of scraps from the front.  I quilted about 1/8 inch on both sides of the seams.  The blue binding is the same blue from Baby W’s Quilt.   I used the “wrong” side of the fabric again to get a more mottled blue than a leafy, flowery print. 

incidentally Baby E is a boy…so i hope he likes it!



Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Ya'll!

A little late…But hoping you all had a wonderful holiday!



Robot Love Quilt

This is such a fun quilt to work on!  Recieved a request from a customer to make a quilt based off a wedding invitation.  The invitation is super cute and really speaks to the couple’s personality.  I have something pretty cool in store for these little beauties.

You can check out the wedding invitation here.

(Disclaimer: I have contacted the maker of this invitation to request permission to use her designs in this one-time quilt.  Please respect her creative genius…I sure do!)
