About Me

My photo
Sewing and cooking are two of my favorite things. In the past, I often found myself searching for pictures and details of projects I have done, without success. So I decided to start documenting my creations. Then my son suggested I add my recipes to the blog so that they are documented also.

Two More Baby Quilts

So I have been busy traveling the last month but before I left on my trip I had 2 baby showers to attend.  I like making quilts for these events because the quilts usually are a very manageable size and I can be somewhat creative.

The first quilt is a sailboat for my expected grand nephew.  This was actually made with the rail fence pattern as depicted in the book Picture This by Billie Lauder.I have been wanting to try out the technique and since this baby will live in New England I thought the sail boat was perfect.

The theme of the nursery for the next expected baby is World Travel so what better quilt than one of the world.  The hardest part of this one was scaling an outline of the world so that it would fit the expected quilt size.  I wasn't sure how this would work out but I was thrilled with the outcome.  I appliqued the continents onto the pale blue ocean and then did some basic straight and wavy line quilting.

Now I can't wait till the new babies arrive!

  1. Great quilt, the world one! Just one little tiny omission.....you forgot Tasmania, under the bottom right of Australia....LOL, that's where I live ha ha ha. Oh and also New Zealand to the right of Australia.
    Well done though - quite an effort I bet. And thanks for all your info on your blog - very informative and helpful. :-)
