Here comes baby……

not ours yet, or at least I hope not!  And when it rains, it pours!  I had 4 baby quilts to make last month. One was for a baby shower for a young mom at church,one was for a new baby born early, and another was for a “Grandma” shower we have for our sorority group and one more to take with me to Europe for a friend that is due there.  Most of the baby shower gifts I make are the Super Sized 9 Patch quilts P6280003

 P7270032 (this is one of the fabric in two of those quilts—isn’t it  just adorable? and it’s at JoAnn’s of all places!!)

that were featured in Quiltmaker Magazine a few years back. (click on the link for the FREE pattern!)   Sometimes I add the name of the baby if I know it ahead of time. A little scary to do for a variety of reasons, so I only did it on the one.  I chose to do these as the one group I’m in has 24 women and I’m in a church where the majority of women are in their 20’s and 30’s and of PRIME baby making ages!  So, it’s a nice easy quilt to make a LOT of and not break the bank of $$ OR time. I’d rather make a quilt for ALL of them rather than ones that I had the time when it was their turn.

this last one is one from the Baby Fats book. Baby Fats You take 24 FQ’s, cut them all up the same way, but use different parts and pieces to create 4 different quilts. This is 1 of 4 done from that fabric.

I have enjoyed scrolling down and viewing your work, specially where you showed what you made last year.

Terrific to see you back here. I had thought maybe you had headed out to visit Ted and just stayed. I'm really sorry about your head banging but glad that (basically) all is well. We're trying to make little baby quilts for each new baby born in the church. So nice!
Write sometime.

What a great idea, super cute. I find baby quilts so hard, I never know what to do. Well done I say.
