Baby Quilt...quilted!

What a great start to the new year... I stayed up late last night and got the baby quilt quilted...feels so good!
All I need to do now is the binding, but as the baby is due in the next couple of weeks, I think I'll wait and see if it's a boy or girl.....then I'll bind it in either blue or pink....
At first, I was a bit apprehensive to start quilting it on SS, but once I started it just flowed.
Nothing fancy, loops and hearts over the pinwheels.... as I'm hoping this quilt will be loved and used lots, so it will need to stand up to to lots of laundering.
Cross-hatched squares, and a bit of meandering around Spots pictures......
        ♥♥♥♥♥♥
 
Also I needed to make another baby quilt...fabrics were already out, so I've started another baby quilt.
This time the baby is one month old so I already know it's a boy....
I thought I would do  scrappy Rail Fence blocks this time.....what little boy doesn't like to climb fences and such. I'm using a multi coloured little spot feature fabric in the rail fence, picks up all the colours of the 1930's baby repro fabrics...
 
I'll keep this quilt simple, and just use up the rest of what's left of Spot's panel fabric.
 
OK, no UFO's this time round...
 
Happy stitching.....♥

The baby quilt turned out so pretty, and I'm glad you could practice more FMQing on it. WE did a great job, didn't we?! ggg

Very cute, Julia. I love to FMQ baby quilts. I know the baby is not going to criticize my work, so I feel so much less apprehensive about it. : )
The rail fence is very fun, too. Good work!

Shirley said...

Whoa Julia, you are a work horse. Wish I could get as much completed. Well done to you they are both super quilts and such lucky babies.

Lurline said...

Love the quilting, Julia. I personally don't like dense quilting on cuddle quilts, this is perfect!

It's turned out great Julia, a lucky little baby to be receiving this.

Hi Julia,
Both of the quilts are gorgeous and when I saw the Spot book that certainly took me back.
Cheers, Anita.
