Bloom Baby Quilt

This past spring I puchased this pattern


Bloom by V and Co.

And the fabric to make this quilt.  I just kept putting it off and putting it off.  All that tracing on the fusible web, then cutting and then applying onto the background.  Finally, I just had to get to this project but I made it much smaller, baby quilt size in fact.
a bit overexposed so you can see the quilting.



It was perfect size not to be overwhelming for me to make  but yet will be so cute for a little girl


I did stitch around each petal after I fused it onto the backgroud fabric. A better look at the quilting:

My new quilting of late is just baby quilts.  I love to make them and have some on hand when a friend or family member has a baby.  I look through my little stash of quilts and pick one out that is perfect for the new baby.

  3. Did you do the actual quilting? Or do you send them out? If you do it, do you use a pattern to transfer the markings onto the fabric? That is beautiful!

    1. I absolutely love this quilt! I'm working on finishing my first quilt ever - at shirt quilt for my son- and sent it out to be quilted. I really enjoyed working on the quilt and would like to do more. I had the same question as Linda: Do you do your own quilting? I was so proud of my little t-shirt quilt that I was terrified to send it out!

    2. Thanks Linda, I do send my quilts out to a longarm quilter. She does a stunning job and it is reasonable.

  7. What a beautiful quilt. Simple, yet stunning. Wondered the same question as Linda, "did you do the 'quilting' on this one", because I loved the way there are flowers as well as swirls quilted in. Very, very pretty.

  12. what a great idea, a stash of quilts! I promised to make each of my nieces and nephews a baby quilt, but maybe not a good idea considering 2 of my sisters are popping em out ASAP! I was just lamenting that neither of them are interested in finding out the sex so how will I ever be able to make a flower quilt! Perfect idea! :) plus I'll look prepared :)

    1. I do like to quilt and there are so many ideas out there I want to try, so baby quilts seem the solution. Have fun making all the quilts for your nieces and nephews.
