Quilt Finish: A Baby Quilt Trio

**This post wasn’t working right.  It’s fixed now**

You might remember a couple of weeks ago I said I sat down and in one day sewed all three of these quilt tops.

The pattern is a free pattern here on the blog.  You can find it HERE.


This quilt is perfect if you have leftovers from a jelly roll project as it uses 2 1/2″ pieces of scrap.


This one is made of primarily Kaffe prints.

I had the nice stripe print and used that for the border and then pink for the binding.  The binding fabric is one I got at a garage sale.

The backing is a print I had in my stash.


I typically don’t have a lot of orange fabric.  This one seemed to look pretty good with the top.

The next one was …
made with Kaffe prints too.  All of these prints came in a box of mail from a blog reader.  They were small pieces and rather than throw them in a scrap box, I decided to deal with them right away.

When scraps come in that are a fat 1/8 or less, I typically keep all of that as I don’t know how many other people want to deal with all of that.  Me, I love it!

The border print was leftover from another project.  My Wild Child quilt.  See more about that HERE.

For the quilting motif, I did my hook and point edge to edge design.


You can see it better on the back of the quilt.  The backing was a nice woven plaid.  I picked the piece up at the thrift store some time ago.

Here is a video that shows how I do the Hook and Point quilting.

The next one was also cut from scraps that a blog reader had sent.  All of the fabric was solid.  It seemed like they were leftovers from a previous project that used 2 1/2″ strips.  It was fast to cut out as the strips were already 2 1/2″ wide.  I paired the fabric with muslin as the fabric almost has the feel of soft high quality muslin.

For the quilting on this, I simply used a wave that was totally free form.

The backing matches better than the photo shows.  It was also a thrift store find.  I miss being at the thrift stores and finding the goodies!!  The binding matches the border fabric.


It was fun to whip these three up and cross more UFOs off of my list.  I think I’m going to need to do an updated list pretty soon.  I’ve gotten that many things done!


So curious minds want to know…which of the baby quilts was your favorite?

    Hi Jo, Merry Christmas. I think something went wrong with the delivery process of your blog, at least to me. I got a repeat of a precious post of 12/19/19 then also a repeat of the sewing room reveal during the triple play baby quilt post. Only got to see one of them! Hope all is well in Iowa. It’s cold in CT!! Thanks for keeping us posted.

    Jo,
    Thanks for the quilting motifs. I have used the bump and hook and the poinsettia. They are great.
    Thanks again.

    Each one is beautiful in its own way. I love the orange backing you added to finish off the first one, the leftover border of the second one, and the wavy quilting of the solid one. Nice job of working through those scraps, Jo!!

    I really, really like the first one with the striped border the most. The backs…no preference from the photos. I’m sure they’re all gorgeous in person.

    I love the softness of the baby quilt done with solids, so peachy and warm!! Glad you got the post fixed, it was a bit confusing but I knew you’d notice it and put it right.

    I like the striped border with the Kaffe prints in the first one. I also really like the plaid backing on the other one. So, basically, I like them all.

    It’s a great pattern!

    I like the one with the purple border and the hook and point quilting the best. But they all came out cute. I’m sure there won’t be any complaints.

    All 3 are lovely! My favorite is the one with Kaffe prints and the purple border, all the colors look so pretty together.

    What a neat trio of quilts! Love them. And that video is cool. I’ll be giving that a try with my domestic.
    Merry Christmas, Jo.
