Baby Quilt!

farm fresh baby quilt

I have been on maternity leave for a week already! You would think this post would be about me making things for my bub, but you’d be wrong!

A while ago I posted about this quilt I made. Well that bub’s little sibling arrived in December! So I thought it about time I got another quilt made!

The quilt I made for our friends first bub

Sticking with the same theme, I chose another panel by Gingiber for Moda, “Farm Fresh” in black and white. I added the same bright fabrics for the sashings and binding as I did for the first.

I used the same thread to give it that hand stitched detailing. But this time I added a little machine quilting as well!

I backed it with a snuggly flannelette!

I also managed to finish a little wall hanging that has been sitting in the UFO (unfinished objects) pile for quite some time!

Scrappy pinwheels

This quilt started life as a bag of scraps some of my mums quilty friends sent my way. I stitched the triangles into pinwheels almost immediately, then mum gave me the blue to alternate with them. I loved how the orange gave it a bit of a pop! It was such an easy quilt I wonder why I left it so long to finish!

Phew! Thats week one down! I have three more weeks until BB’s due date. I still have to make curtains for his bedroom, and I just started designing him a quilt too! Wonder how much I’ll actually get done in between all the naps I’m taking!

Have a creative week!
