Even more baby time!

I posted a few months ago about two babies quilts that I was working on, and a way to speed up the time it takes to set up the long-arm machine. Unfortunately, the binding still takes just as long so it’s taken awhile to get the projects finished. The quilts are finally complete, photographed and passed along to two very special babies!

Here are the front and back of the first quilt:

I used Bottom Line thread in light blue for both quilts, following a pantograph pattern of swirls for the quilting. I thought this would soften the straight edges of the geometric patchwork patterns.

Here are the front and back of the second quilt:

I bound both quilts with a striped fabric – I really like the effect around the edges!BabyQuiltChair2

Details of the front and back show the swirly quilting:

I love making baby quilts! It’s a great opportunity to use bright colours and experiment with new ideas with a smaller quilt size!

 

Happy quilting!
