Two Baby Quilts Done....

I LOVE how these two little baby quilts/toddler quilts came out. I think I made about a zillion of these squares so I had enough for two baby quilts and one queen size quilt. I just finished quilting both baby quilts
for my Etsy shop.










I quilted this first one in a wavy pattern and pulled the backing around for self binding. It really came out nice. Once it was washed the fabric just snuggled right up to those little stitches for a beautiful heirloom look.

The second little quilt (they both measure about 36x36) I simpled ditch quilted and then hand tied each white square with turqoise grosgrain ribbon. This one has a navy blue and white polkadot calico binding and is backed with a teddy bear soft fleece. Because of the fleece backing it has a wonderful drape and is oh so fluffy.

Both of these are going to be offered on my Etsy shop in a few days. I've got several others going up that I will be posting about in a few days.

P.S. Any of my blog followers or Facebook followers who are intested in either of these quilts - you can e-mail me privately.

Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.

I really like the wavy stitching - what a comforting quilt that must be! Best wishes.

Gosh Cathie, these look as good as store-bought quilts, and I'll bet they last a whole lot longer. Your work is impeccable.
