Baby Windowpanes

11.23.2010

The reason that I started to learn to quilt was because all my friends started to have babies and I wanted to make cute things for them.  This makes baby quilt #6 (with a couple more in progress of course since I can never finish something 100% without starting something new).

And I still love making them…..

This took just a charm pack of fun fabric and a solid color for the background. It pieced together very quickly and I love the windowpane look.

And the back in a cream soft flannel with a pinwheel….

I think I am in love with that curvy stitch on my sewing machine…..

I also made a light weight blanket with a fun boy animal print.

This was super easy.  I just got a yard of fabric I loved and sliced it, turned different sections around, and inserted white.

More snuggly flannel on the back.  This was the first time I attempted a machine sewn binding.  I have to say it was so much faster than a traditional hand sewn binding (like on the quilt) and I was so happy how the front looks.  But it was a little wonkier on the back than I would have liked.  Oh well I guess that just means more practice.  Hopefully Baby K won’t mind.

We had a great time at the shower and Sarah, the mom-to-be, looked so cute.  Sarah is actually the friend that convinced to start a blog and that people would actually read it (besides her and my mom). 154117_592771270129_66801178_33502088_2849917_n

So now you know where to direct your hate mail/fan mail to.

Hope Baby K loves his new quilt!

  3. Both of these are so adorable! I love the curvy stitch too. Do you use a special foot on your sewing machine to do the machine quilting? I have a real problem getting an even feed and so I do really limited quilting. I think I need to get one of those special foot things!

  10. The quilts are beautiful. You are so good at quilting. Love the square you did on the back of the windowpane quilt and I love the squiggly stitching. I was totally going to ask if you did that by hand.
