A sweet lady, Wyoming Nana, donated fabric to our Project Linus Chapter. All of the fabrics in is quilt are from her. I saw a picture of a similar quilt and decided I could make it with some changes. I don't know the name of the block but I call it Up and Down. Hope a child likes it.
This is out of It's Sew Emma BOOKS, Charming Baby Quilts By Melissa Corry. I think it measures ~ 52 x 52 I think. In the book it is multi-colored, but I thought I would stick to 2 colors. I free motioned quilted this. This is the most densely quilted I have ever done a quilt. It took forever and in the end it feels more stiff than I would really want in a cuddly baby quilt. All in all, it was a great experience and excellent practice.
I saw Bonnie Hunter's step by step instructions on making her Carolina Chain Quilt. I wasn't in the mood to set the 2 blocks on point so I played around with them and came up with this design using 2" squares from Nana's donation. Hope a child likes it!
A handsome baby boy tumbler quilt for a friend of my husband. I used two packages of "Pinewood Acres" by Penny Rose for Riley Blake Designs, and cordinates for the two borders. I found a matching flannel at a local quilt shop for the back. I also used Missouri Stars 5" tumbler template to cut the tumbler blocks. Getting the blocks to align properly when sewing them together is a little frustrating, there is another template out there that has a little notch in the bottom corner to help align the tumblers, that might work better. I echoed stitched about half an inch away from all seams. I just love how this quilt turned out and I found a matching bear stuff animal!
