FO: Flowery Quilt

Posted in Sewing with tags , on January 12, 2012 by annatestadoro

I just found these pictures of a flower baby quilt that I made probably over 5 years ago. In fact it was so long ago that I can’t even remember who I made it for. What I do remember is that I had these really cute squares of different flowery fabric, and each square had a different pattern on it.

I can’t┬áremember many more details of this particular quilt, but I┬áremember it being really easy to make, I just used squares and sewed them together. I had a back piece, put wadding in the middle and then added a pink border.

Soft Quilt for Baby Prasad

Posted in Sewing with tags , , , on November 3, 2010 by annatestadoro

Even though I’ve been making lots of knitted baby blankets in recent years, I also used to make smallish baby quilts. Although, I often don’t do any actual quilting, apart from some minor sections. I prefer to patchwork the top and then chose a nicely coloured piece of fabric for the bottom, then in the middle I use some wadding to make it nice and soft.

And even though I know that we’re having a little girl, I still decided to use a good selection of yellows, a nice red and green, with a nice pinkish bottom piece of fabric. It’s worked out well, and is nice and soft.

This quilt brings my collection of blankets to three, a woollen one, a cotton one and this one. I think I should probably stop making blankets now, but they’re nice and easy to knit/make and I love the idea of being able to chose very different colours.

Starry Starry Night

This was the one piece of sewing that took me the longest. Probably because It was all sewn by hand?! It’s a quilt that was made from simple cotton, with a star design, see picture:

The fact that it took so long to make made it that much more rewarding when it was finally finished. It’s found a very good home with a good friend of mine.

I’d like to think of this quilt as a bit of a work of art, especially as it looks rather good, don’t you think?

The back was a bright red, which works quite nicely.
