Babies, Babies, Everywhere
Having dealt with the Blogger issue, I'm happy to be back in business, so to speak. I have some baby quilts to share with you.
This quilt is for my daughter's oldest friend, Kim. They became thick as thieves when they were in the second grade and remained close until around the time Sherry got married. Facebook brought Kim back into our lives a couple of years ago, and in mid-November, she and her husband produced Devon, a dear little boy who looks a lot like his maternal grandfather, IMNSHO.
The quilt is from the pattern Index, by Kristy Daum. It is the last quilt I've made using only one line of fabric. The pattern is very easy, and kind of fun to do, and you can find it here.
I just realized that I've never posted a photo of my finished Mazed flimsy, the cool batiks on black version that I so loved making! Must remedy that . . .
Meanwhile, the baby sized Mazed quilt is quilted and bound using left-overs from the maze fabrics.
My good friend Dottie's daughter Em is expecting a little one on January. She and her husband opted not to find out ahead of time what gender their baby is, so I needed something neutral for the quilt. Can't go wrong with pale green, I think. I'm happy with how this quilt turned out. Oh, and the pattern is also available here.
The shower is this Saturday.
I still think it would be fun to half-size the blocks for Mazed to make a different baby quilt.
Timothy was born a couple of weeks ago. His quilt is back from the machinist and bound, and I'll be connecting with him within the next week to deliver it.
I don't have a pattern for this quilt; it's just something I do from time to time with batiks and is very, very easy. I wonder if I should attempt to do a tutorial.
