Adventures in Fabric Art

Two Finishes












Here are two little baby quilts I finished yesterday.  Both are aqua and gray, very popular colors.











I finally got these log cabin blocks oriented correctly.  You might have said something after Wednesday’s post, or did you think it was something artsy I was doing?  I found two to fix after that post, but I didn’t see the last block till I had it sandwiched.  Fortunately, it was in a corner, so it wasn’t too bad to un-sew and re-sew.  If you spot a problem now, please don’t tell me.




















This one with the chevrons was more of a minty aqua, and hard to photograph.  I like it, though, and I had fun doing the feathers.  I even remembered to add extra batting to the gray areas when I sandwiched it, so the feathers pop more.  The odd triangles are seersucker, and the texture is  great.


I like the flying geese backing.

These are smaller than I usually make, 30″ x 36″, which I still think is a useful size.  Usually, mine are around 36″ x 42″.  What do you think is the ideal size for a baby quilt?

I’m linking up with Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. Oh I love these colors!!!! Look at you go…two quilts. You’ve been a busy girl 🙂 How are the kitties doing?

  2. They are lovely! I have no idea what a good size is… I haven’t really made any. Seems like if it is big enough for the baby, you’ve done your job. 🙂

  3. Size depends on how much time I have allowed myself before the baby was born or if the new mom has seen my work and would have her feelings hurt with a small quilt.

  4. Missed the part where I tell you how great your quilts came out. Both are wonderful. Love your color choices.

  6. The colors of the quilts are great! And the chevron-pattern is so cool.
