Sewing Sweet Baby Quilts!
These 2 little quilts are about 37" X 49". I pieced the blocks last year using odds and ends of leftover 2" strips (lights) from making log cabin quilts. Today I added the 2" inner borders and 6" outer borders. Aren't they sweet? I intentially made them narrow on the top so the borders and backing aren't pieced. I think they are a perfect size for a washable baby quilt!
My plan is to back them in a soft flannel and quilt them myself on my sewing machine - not sure when I will get to that seeing that I don't have any flannel or batting, but at least they are ready to go once I do.
Thanks for all the kind comments about my quilting attempts on Little Boy's I Spy quilt. I really did have fun doing it - and if any of you haven't tried free-motion quilting yet - you should try it! Start with something small - like a placemat - and go from there.
And the hat pattern - I used my sister's but will ask her for the pattern information and will post it for all who want to know!
