Baby Quilts

My daughter, Emma, is due in June with her third child, a boy, and I'm working on a quilt for him.

I do quilts in my own way.  Sometimes I make squares, but sometimes, I find darling fabric and make a solid front and back and then quilt around some of the design on the fabric.  That is what I am doing this time.

When Emma was having her 2nd baby, I knitted him a blanket, but didn't do a quilt, so she asked if I'd make him a quilt, too.  Of course!

I found this darling sea turtle fabric.  The colors are vibrant with blues, greens, yellows, and oranges.  I love it, and I think Clark will, too!

I have a bit of work to do on them still, but its going to be a good project to occupy some of my time here at home.

I hope you have a great day!

Oh! Also, I added a photo to the chocolate chip cookie recipe post from yesterday.  You can find that post {here}.


  1. Finally got your blog to open! Cute quilts, SO sweet. Enjoy your day and as always, thanks for being my friend:) HUGS!

  2. Such adorable fabric designs!! Those baby boys will enjoy those sweet quilts from their Grandma!!

  3. What a clever way to make a quilt! I’ve promised Louis Dean a denim quilt for years and actually cut it out last year. I fully intend to make it before his birthday in November. It’s a Texas Flag quilt using red white and blue denim. I think I cut it out too big. It will be a HUGE quilt but Louis Dean is a big guy!

  4. great fabrics and wonderful idea for a quilt. Somewhere along the way, I've forgotten that there was a new grandbaby coming.

  5. I love the colors! And your labor of love. You know you are creating heirlooms!

  6. Lovely fabrics. My grandchildren all had handmade quilts. I dont think I'd have the energy to do them now.

  7. Indeed, those are darling special to give your grandchild a homemade quilt....I love it!

  8. Busy hands are happy hands!
    Those are really sweet patterns...
