baby bonanza!

I think those huge queen size quilts really took a lot of energy out of! So I have been recharging by making some quick and easy baby quilts! I love how quickly they get finished, and also like the fact that I can try out fun colours or new ideas on something small and not commit a lot of time or money.

I previously posted this pretty yellow and grey .... (and I had enough fabric to make 3 of them)

So then I tried it out in some different colours...

love this colour combo..
and they are all backed in fun,cozy flannel..

And had some fun practising my machine appliqué..(these are both basted, but not quilted yet)

you have seen this one...

And I just love this little guy..
And my final finish is a "cheater" panel.

And I just used the backing for the border, by folding it double and then bringing it to the front to stitch down.

I didn't mitre the corners either, just made folded corners. (I know....really a cheater !!)

I have given a few away already, and will likely give some to The Children's Cottage Society, where my daughter works.  It is always nice to have a couple on hand for gifts too.

so that's my finishes for now...I am going to link into TGIFF over at What a Hoot.



  1. Those are so cute! And perfect for gifts and give-aways!

  2. I love all of these. Baby quilts are my favourite to make!

  3. Oh my Flo - they are all just darling!

  4. What a great set of baby quilt finishes! Yeah, it is so nice to work on those after a run of large quilts! :D Thanks for sharing at TGIFF.

  5. Pretty! I like the cheater version the best, probably because I'm cheater myself, lol.

  6. Nice to have some in the vault. You DO get a lot done!

  7. They are fun to make as they are quick and manageable - I love the grey and yellow one especially :)

  8. Wowzers! What a great show. And nothing like a baby quilt to make you feel like you've really accomplished something!

  9. very nicely done! i love the baby quilts especially.


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
