Baby quilts are fun to make because they’re smaller, so they go faster; the fabrics are always colorful and fun; and welcoming a new life into the world is a joyous occasion, whether it’s a family member or a dear friend.
Here are some baby quilts I made over the years.
This one was made for my son’s best friend. The focus fabric is adorable–animals on vehicles of all kinds.
This one was for Sadie–obviously! She is my great-niece, who wasn’t a baby when I made this. But she was adopted by my niece, and she loves pink and purple and hearts.
This one, with frogs as the focus fabric, was made for the son of another niece.
Made for the granddaughter of a dear friend.
I made this one for my brother’s grandson, whose father is in the military.
This one was for Holly, Sadie’s sister. It’s an I-Spy.
This one was for my brother’s second grandson. Adorable bug fabric.
For my brother’s granddaughter. Love the colors in this one.
This cutie was for my sister’s grandson. Dinosaurs!
For my son’s dog, who is my grand-dog, and that counts!
And here is grand-dog Indie on his quilt!
An I-Spy for the grandson of a dear friend.
Love this one! I donated it to San Antonio Latch-On, a non-profit breastfeeding organization, to be a door prize. Great fabrics in this one–
This one is sort of a scrappy that I made because I liked the pattern. It hasn’t been given to anyone yet!
These were blocks that I bought from a lady on the Quilting Board. I put them together and quilted it for practice, and now it belongs to my Yorkie, Skeeter.
Isn’t he adorable? He deserves his own quilt.
And here he is, on it.
By the way, Skyy, on the right, is wearing a little flanned quilted jacket I made for her. We keep her trimmed really close all the time, so on the rare occasions that it gets cold in South Texas, she needs a jacket.
And last, but not least, this is a scrappy I made for my other Yorkie, Skyy.
Love my fur-babies!
