Baby quilts are great fun to make - luckily we seem to know lots of people having babies ...
|Jenn's Ebb quilt (designed by Carolyn Friedlander) is for a |
friend's newborn. The background fabric is linen
|Mermaid Stars is the baby quilt that Jenn is sending off with the |
parents' wedding quilt (which is a little overdue).
|The star centres feature a mermaid print ...|
|... and the backing is Heather Ross's unicorn print.|
|Jill has mended and hand quilted her son's baby quilt, made |
with nine Goose Tracks blocks, by a friend in 1985. It was
originally tied, and is very faded from much washing and wear.
It is being returned to her friend's daughter as a keepsake.
|The 1980s prints are visible at the edges where the original |
backing was rolled over and stitched. On the right is a small
single block keepsake quilt that Jill has made to keep.
|The alligator baby quilt is Jill's daughter Emma's first |
attempt at applique (which she designed herself). Jill
machine quilted it for her, using the serpentine stitch
#4 on her Bernina to quilt the alligator skin (below).
