I love to make baby quilts.
First of all they are a great gift and secondly they are smaller and then I have time to make more quilts :)
Last winter I gifted these to quilts to twins.
The pattern is called Sea Glass BABY Quilt. I bought it on Craftsy and I love it.
I have never been a fan of appliqué but I learned a lot making these even if all the shapes are the same :) I think I might try some more of it soon.
I also loved to choose the colors, these pictures are a little misleading because they were taken in Iceland in December so there was not a lot of light. The colors are much brighter is reality.
The fabric I used was all something I had in my strach already. I have blogged about it before but I am a subscriber of a monthly fatquarter club from Fatquartershop.com. For the two inner circles of each star I used fat quarters and for the two outer circles I used fabric I had at hand.
Hello again. I have missed my blog but I have been so busy for the last 2 years I have hardly had time to do anything except work and take care of myself and my family. 1st of March I had a baby girl and I will be on maternity leave until November. I am hoping that I will have some time for my blog and my sewing in this time, while I take care of my baby girl.
So my first sewing project in months will be to make a quilt for my older girls bed. This is curtain in her room and I wanted to match the colors, at least get the theme of colors from it.
This is what I came up with. I have a monthly subscription of a Batik Fat Quarter Club from the Fat Quarter Shop (not sponcered, just love the shop and want to let you guys know about it) and for this quilt I used fat quarters I have received from them.
I used the rail fench pattern since it is easy and I wanted to make some this easy and quick for my first projects this year. My grandmother helped me make my first proper quilt many many years ago with this pattern and I love it. I am still not sure about the colors but I am still going to finish the quilt and then make up my mind if I use it for my daughter or not.
I thought I had done a little tutorial when I did a rail fench quilt when I was in Japan but it appears I did not so maby I will use this quilt to take some pictures and make an tutorial for this easy and goog beginners quilt :)
