Baby Quilts

I managed to get four baby quilts done for my craft show a couple weeks ago and I'm just now getting around to sharing them with you all.  Two boy-ish and two girl-ish.  They were quick and easy, just what I needed to get them done for the show!

Pooches and Pickups Baby Quilt

For this one I used Kona cottons and these cute truck prints form Pooches and Pickups.  I just did some simple straight line quilting and bound it in Kona cotton.

Hello Luscious Baby Quilt

This one is made with Kona cotton in white and a Hello Luscious charm pack with Hello Luscious yardage for the back.  This one is also straight line quilted and bound with Kona Cotton.  I made this one from start to finish the day before the show!

Get Together Baby Quilt

This was the first one I pieced.  It's made with more Kona Cotton (pretty much the only solid I work with) and selected prints from Get Together.  I chose to stipple this one and I was pretty happy with how the quilting turned out.

Vintage Modern Baby Quilt

Then there's this little pretty thing!  I love this quilt.  It is probably just the colors, but I want a throw sized one for myself.  I used Kona Cotton in Ash, a Vintage Modern charm pack and Sherbet Dot from Ruby for the back.  For the quilting I gave wavy lines a try and love the look.  I bound it with a dot fabric from my stash.  I just love the whole thing!

Drummer

And then there is this little guy, he was my shadow while I was photographing these quilts.  Isn't he just soooo cute?!  This is Drummer, my little long haired chihuahua weighing in at six whole pounds.  He is my constant shadow.  Whether I'm sitting at my sewing desk or sitting on the couch, cooking dinner or brushing my teeth he is always at my feet.  In fact, in this very picture he is sitting at my feet!  Oh I just love him so much!

Have a wonderful evening!
