**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?
