I currently am working on the most dope baby quilt I have ever made. Not kidding – truly the greatest. But because that baby quilt is secret sewing, here are some pictures of some other baby quilts I have wrapped up quickly. They are pretty ok…
This was made based on a pattern in wanderlust quilts. I modified and simplified it a bit so there weren’t any Y-seams. I used V and Co. Ombre. Something about the ombres, especially the yellow and turquoise make it look light the quilt is lit from within. I used Kona Medium Gray… and my favorite baby boy quilt back fabric of the season, this Zoology print..
I loved giving this quilt. The mom recipient is one of my favorite people. And she really loved the quilt.
Next up is a quilt made for a friend who was going to be surprised by the gender. When I ask what colors a nursery is going to be decorated, the trend is going to get very specific answers. Which I would be the EXACT SAME if I was decorating a nursery. But as a quiltmaker, I yearn for free color and artistic control. So when this mom said, “um, I don’t know, green?” I was thrilled. And wowzer did I get crazy with the green. I had a lot of fun with this quilt.
How sweet is that? Love all of those greens – and I do think it will be equally cheerful for a boy and girl. This has become my favorite baby quilt pattern. It is on-point 5-in squares and tied. The tieing and no binding make the quilts lay flatter and look cleaner.
I backed this quilt with a fun all-over numbers green print.
I have made 4 boy quilts in a row, so I was ready for a girl quilt. So I used the same pattern and went crazy with the girly flowery prints.
Oh my gosh, that quilt is my jam !! I still have to tie it, but then it will go to Project Linus. I think it will make a small girl and a family happy. With all those beautiful blooms, how couldn’t it?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that first one!!! Can I request a copy for the L-M baby at some point in his life? I hesitate to ask because I don’t want to be greedy with your quilty awesomeness, but ohmygoshiloveit! You are so right that it looks lit from within. The colors are gorgeous! Or maybe you can teach me how to make it myself at some point? Love you!
