Finished - Milo's Tummy Time Quilt

 I love making baby quilts.  There, I said it.  Bed size quilts may be more practical but little quilts are not only much quicker to get to the reward of completion but also experimenting with new techniques seems less risky.  And I especially love making baby quilts when the recipient is my adorable grandson.

The pattern is Glitter and Glow Quilt by SuzyQuilts and was a joy to sew.  My last visit to a fabric shop was in March when I picked up most of the fabrics for the quilt.  It was my first time visiting Quilted Threads here in New Hampshire and then COVID hit. I look forward to returning as I was impressed with the shops mix of quilting and garment sewing fabrics.  This quilt has a combination of quilting cottons and linens for extra textural interest.  

This is another instance of the backing fabric, a soft flannel from Joann Fabric, determining the quilt top colors.  

Keep smiling!


Finished - Irish Chain from Scraps

One of the main reasons I started this little blog was to create a catalog of my finished quilts.  Although I am considering creating a paper notebook to document my quilts.  Has anyone done that?  

So, here's a quick quilt that I finished earlier this year from scraps remaining from the bunk bed quilts (posted here).  Another quilt completely made from materials on hand and added to the quilts to be donated collection!

 More finish posts to follow!

Keep smiling,
