Pastel Baby Quilt

New theme of the week - Quilts.  Last week's theme was all garments red, so why not another theme this week.

I have had a few quilts that have come back from the long arm quilter, they all seem to come back at once!

This one is a quilt Meredith started last fall and it sat on the shelf needing one more row completed.  She had a charm pack and cut it up in these patterns, I am sure she found the pattern on Pinterest.

The quilt sat on the shelf due to the fact, Meredith ran out of charm pack.  I went through my scraps and found a couple pieces that worked with the charm pack colors and finished the quilt.

Thanks to a dear friend we have lots of baby quilt size  batting pieces.  This helps reduce the cost of the quilts and a great way to use up the pieces.

As you can tell, this is another baby girl quilt.  How many baby boy quilts do I currently have in my closet for gifts?  A big fat zero!  One is at the longarm quilters, so that is a start..

This is another cute little quilt, which is no longer an UFO but a lovely gift waiting for a sweet little baby.

Thanks to Meredith for constructing most of this quilt, it took me about an hour to finish it.

Don't forget to enter my current giveaway, celebrating my 8 years of blogging.

Meredith and I  have  more company in the sewing room.  Kaitlyn has decided to do more sewing, which I am thrilled to have more of my girls sewing but leaves us one machine short!  LOL.


  1. Time to go shopping for another machine? ;) What a beautiful quilt. The baby that receives it will be blessed by it!

  2. You always make the most adorable quilts. ... lovely colors.

  3. What are mom's for but to finish up quilts! :) And gosh darn I really need to try quilting - you do such a great job!

    What a lovely quilt! I really need to start quilting... I have two baby boys to make gifts for and I'm feeling so uninspired!
