Two Baby Quilts

Both of these baby quilts have been finished for quite awhile, but I haven't posted about them yet! They are both made of 5" patchwork with a 4" border; they are quilted on my simple Brother with a walking foot about 1/4" from each seam.

 Low Volume Vintage Sheets 
The patchwork was a giveaway win and then I used my own stash for the border and binding. I found the perfect backing at a rummage sale or a thrift store - I had just enough for the back!

 This quilt was quite girly and because we didn't find out Peanut's gender before she arrived, I kept telling myself that I'd donate it if Peanut wasn't a girl. I was happy when I was able to use it ;)

Seaside!
 I still can't believe I let myself buy Seaside (October Afternoon for Riley Blake). I couldn't help myself - it was just too cute! And then two months after the purchase, I found out I was pregnant and I knew exactly what I'd make with the two charm packs and the two half-yards! This was gender neutral enough that I knew it would be used no matter what. The backing is a JoAnns' flannel that I purchased on Black Friday two years ago.

I have since purchased Sasparilla (again...October Afternoon for Riley Blake) with a gift certificate from a giveaway win)... you know, just in case Peanut ever gets a sibling, I wanted to have another cute, gender neutral quilt all ready ;)

  1. These are great quilts. I did a couple gender neutral quilts before Mikaela was born. I am starting to have a stack to give away now as I have a few too many for the kids.
