A Trio of Baby Quilts

I have recently finished quilting a number of quilts which are going to be gifted to new-born babies.  I always find these little quilts rather special.

The three baby quilts I am sharing today have been made by my customers Hilary, Cath and Sharon.

Hilary has made a simple baby quilt, setting squares of beautiful fabric with white sashing. The quilt has been quilted with an all-over feather design which has given it a lovely texture.

The next photo shows the back of this quilt - I do love pieced backs!

The baby quilt made by Cath was her first effort at making a quilt and she has done a lovely job combining piecing and applique.

Cath's quilt has been custom quilted - swirls to go with the sea theme, straight lines in the borders, continuous curves in the sashing and blocks.

The central boat applique square has been quilted with the sun, clouds and water.

Sharon's quilt is a gorgeous quilt which is made almost entirely from the tiniest hand pieced hexagons.

This quilt has been quilted with continuous curves around each hexagon, a feathered heart border and some random hears inside some of the hexagons.

Each hexagon is just over 1 inch across - I do love the tiny hearts.

Hopefully by now, the babies for whom these quilts were made have safely arrived and have brought joy to both the recipients and the quilt makers.


  1. The random hearts in the hexagons is a really nice touch.

  2. Three beautiful quilts, all beautifully quilted! Karen I love how you get the feel of each quilt and then quilt it for its own personality. That makes them all very special. xo

  3. Wow, any baby will be lucky to receive these quilts! They are fabulous!

  4. I just love the curly-q hearts thrown in with the hexie quilting. :)


I really appreciate your comments - they will appear shortly.
