Ducky Baby Quilt

This post contains affiliate links.

Look at this adorable quilt my mom just finished! She made it for my sister Anna (who is not pregnant...yet), so she chose gender-neutral fabrics. The ducks are raw-edge appliqued with machine button-hole stitching. She used her favorite rotary cutter to get those accurate seams. Because this is the first quilt she's made for Anna, she wanted it to be extra special and spent hours hand quilting it.




We also did a pink and brown version, without the ducks, here.

Fox and Stripes Baby Quilt

Just wanted to share one of my new favorite quilts (I think I say that every time!). This aqua and gray fox baby quilt was lots of fun to make. All of the fox squares were originally going to be the same size. A shortage of fabric called for some creativity, though, so four of the fox squares got gray sashing. I think I like how it turned out more than I would have liked the original. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow.

Arizona Baby Quilt

I think I just finished my favorite quilt that I've ever made. This was my first time using Art Gallery solids (I usually use Kona) and I was impressed by their softness and beautiful color. I also really like this simple Greek Cross design and I think it lends itself well with the business of the fabric on the back. April Rhode's Arizona fabrics have been wildly popular in the quilting world. I'm glad on got my hands on some of it because I can see this one going out of stock everywhere soon.

I recently purchased a walking foot for my Bernina and this was my first time quilting with it. It's definitely a completely different process from quilting swirls with a darning foot, but I think it will get easier with time.

It's for sale in my shop.

Vive La France Quilt

Mom and I just finished up another quilt for the shop today. The design of this one is very simple, being just simple squares, by we used a mix of cotton and chenille to give this quilt something special. The chenille was a little tricky to sew on, but I love the extra softness and texture it gives.

The applique bunny on the back is chenille, too.

These topiaries are so petite and girly.

And there's matching burp cloths too!

Nautical Nursery

I just wanted to share this picture I got today of a nautical nursery with my sailboat quilt draped over the glider. It makes me so happy to see that my quilts are used and loved!

Red, White, and Blue

Just in time for the Fourth of July... Mom and I finished up our Independence Day table runners.





Simple Elephant Baby Quilt

Just a quick finish for the weekend -  I pieced these squares together several months ago. They were leftovers from the Elephant Splash quilt I did last year. I threw in a few extra prints and colors too. Sometimes you just need a really easy project, you know? Last week, mom came up with the cute elephant applique, I quilted it, and she bound it. We make quite the team, I think.

The swirly quilting is supposed to look a little like an elephant trunk.
The cute flannel back is from JoAnn.
