I designed this easy baby quilt pattern on EQ7 using 5 inch squares in shades of blue. Click on the link below to print the pattern. It is in PDF format. If you can’t open PDFs email me and I will send you a copy in .doc or .odt format to open in Word or Libre.
I recently had an email in my inbox from a lovely lady who wanted to know the name of the pattern for this quilt.
It is called a Double Irish Chain. I originally made it for my mother in a queen size. She bought a bigger bed and it didn’t fit so she sent it to my brother. I hope he is keeping warm under this beauty.
Here is my mini quilt for the Summertime Mini Quilt Swap. My friend Laura showed me a pattern on how to do a stained glass quilt. So I made up my own design. It turned out ok. So imagine you are looking out a stained glass window. This is what you see. LOL.
This is with a flash. The blue batik is a little darker.
No flash here. Here are some close ups of the free motion quilting.And please remember I am new to free motion so be kind.
I tried to make it look like abstract waves. I used black and blue thread.
Don’t forget to leave me a comment for the 400th give away HERE.
I started a baby blanket for my cousin’s son two years ago. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to finish it. It is one of those projects that I have felt some guilt over not finishing. Terrance isn’t a baby anymore so I had to add to the original blanket to make it bigger. I had to think about what I wanted to do to it for a few days. I don’t have anymore of the cowboy material so I wasn’t sure what exactly I was going to do. I just know that I didn’t want to scrap it and start over. Here is it before adding to it.
After some much needed sewing, yesterday it was turned into this.
I think to finish it off I am going to add some 4 patches to the top and bottom and then a dark blue border.
And the winner is TLC Stitches. Congratulations. Here is what she won.
