Aqua Baby Quilt

Here is the second baby quilt, made for a present when needed.  I found the pattern online and here is the tutorial
I purchased this charm pack with a couple of my quilting buddies, we like to go to new stores and this was our first trip to this particular store. I was drawn to the unusual color combination and thought how fun for a little girl, not the traditional pink.

I love the connecting circle quilting, check it out closer:

The fabric is from Moda.

  1. Very lovely. Lori, do you "stitch" your quilts, (as in the circles above) or do you have someone else do them? I am going to make a small quilt (first one) and I have the machine , fabric and know how- I am stuck at the stitching step after all is assembled. Does this make any sense?
    And advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Joanne

    1. Joanne, I send my quilts to a long arm quilter for the quilting. If it is a small quilt you could stitch in the ditch, make diagonal lines or stitch 1/4" from the seams. I would lengthen the stitch a bit through all the thickness. Do you have a longarm quilter around, an all-over pattern is very reasonable. The only downfall is they tend to be backlogged. My longarm is about 6 weeks out.

    2. Thanks Lori.
      I like the idea of sending it out also.

  4. I like those colors too, Lori. Very different but pleasing. I've seen that pattern on Sewing with Nancy/Nancy Zieman. She did it much larger though. It would be a great scrap buster too.

  5. I like this one Lori. The colors are so unusual. The quilted circles add a unique look to it. I've fallen in love with quilting. Love seeing the ones you do.

  6. So pretty. I like the circles, too. That's a rather unusual quilting pattern. So, when are you going to buy a long-arm quilting machine and do it yourself? I mean, since you have so much spare time! Ha!
