Jelly Roll Posies for Baby

59” by 59” (152 cm by 152 cm)

Made for Gracie.

 Instead of making lots of tiny, setting triangles I use squares.  Then I do the quilting.  When the quilting is done I trim the squares into triangles and then do the binding.

Updating a 30 Year Old Baby Quilt

Coco’s Baby Quilt – 50″ by 58″

Click HERE to download free baby quilt pattern (.pdf)

My friend, Melissa Erickson, had a treasured 30 year old baby quilt.  She took it with her to college and to Europe when she went to play professional basketball abroad.  Melissa’s quilt was made for her by her godmother.

She was recently asked to be baby Coco’s godmother and decided to pass her baby quilt to her new godchild.  She called me and asked if I would update her baby quilt for Coco.  Coco is the daughter of one of her dear friends.

Melissa’s quilt was made from squares of a synthetic fabric, probably polyester.  The white squares were made of brushed nylon and these were the only parts that were too worn to be used in the new quilt.   The quilt was in amazing condition considering all the love it had received over 30 years.

I took Melissa’s quilt apart.  When I sewed it back together I added some squares of Hawaiian fabrics to the pastel colored squares from the original quilt.  When I made the border I alternated squares of flannel backed satin (available at Joann’s) with squares of Hawaiian fabrics.  I used a cuddle fabric (similar to Minkie) for the quilt back.  The original quilt had been sewn together with a cotton/poly blend thread that lasted in perfect condition.  I may rethink using cotton thread in future quilts.  Of course I have thousands of yards of cotton thread which I will use up first.

I hope the new quilt will last another 30 years.

I knew Melissa would miss her baby quilt.  I took the backing for her quilt, added the same backing I had used on Coco’s quilt and a Hawaiian fabric binding so she could have at least part of her original quilt back to love.

In 2008 I made another quilt for Melissa.  You can check out the pattern here.

Here is my quilt top.  This is my version of Bonnie Hunter’s Double Delight Mystery Quilt with the new border pattern.  It will be quilted soon and off to its new owner.  I changed Bonnie’s block a little by replacing 4 of the cream triangles with pink triangles in the four corners.   I used my Repro 30′s bubble gum pink baby print fabric.

You  can use this pattern with any quilt that has (9) 9″ finished sized blocks.

I love how sweet this little quilt looks.

Scrappy Spring Tulips Baby Quilt

Available size – 42″ by 42″

My good friend, Marie (http://chestnutsquilting.com/) , made this quilt for a baby that is on the way.    She wanted smaller baby blocks and wanted it less than 44″ wide so she didn’t have to piece the back.  The new block size is 11″  (the original is 16″).    I love it.  The grandmother died recently and the fabric is from her stash so this is a very sentimental quilt.

NOTE:  Please download the Fabric Requirements again.  I have modified them slightly.

Also.. after making my quilt I had a great lesson learned.

Buy 2 yards or meters of the fussy cut fabric.. it is much easier.

The pattern will work with one yard so if you already have your fabric it will still work.

I made mine with one yard since I didn’t feel like finding that fabric online (I bought it on vacation in Oregon a while back).

This quilt is available in one size:

Baby Quilt – 42” by 42”

Metric – 108 cm by 108 cm

I bought one yard of pirate fabric, found some coordinating fabric in my stash and challenged myself to make a baby quilt pattern.

This is a good pattern for fabric that has 8″ panels or has a border print like the pirate fabric that can be fussy cut.
