Last month I planned to take sewing to the next level. All this time I have been using linen or thick cotton as a fabric for my bags. The prints and colors available for those are pretty limited in comparison to the ones available for quilting. Whoa!! there is so much variety of print available for quilting it is pretty crazy.
For a few friends, with due dates in november I decided to venture into making baby quilts. I chose very easy freely available quilting patterns. and got started with what I always do, Chevrons.
My first baby girl quilts has three main fabrics, binding and backing in a fourth fabric.
Here is the tutorial and pattern for this quilt.
My second quilt was for a baby boy and I chose a fat quarter pack from Lincraft and got matching backing and binding fabric.
This is the quilt pattern I used for this quilt.
I have really enjoyed making quilts. But I quickly realize that there is so much to improve upon as not always the squares match up. Won’t stop me from making more of these beautiful bundles in all possible colors.
Have a great crafty weekend.
