2 down, again in the nick of time!

Babies, babies everywhere… both teacher’s babies that were due 11/9 arrived, safe, healthy and happy, just before their due dates. And aside from the teachers, 2 other friends welcomed babies last week! What a boom!


And, happily, I got teacher baby quilt #2 done and quilted, and dropped off at school and handed over to the new mom, one whole day before her son arrived! Phew! I showed you this one last week:


I am so happy with how it came out- bright and cheerful and fun. I used super simple diagonal lines for the quilting. It’s becoming my go to for these simple quilts.


The binding worked out perfectly. I had just a wee bit more than I needed to both be binding, and also to help make the backing wide enough.


The pink of the backing looks more red here, but in reality it’s a pretty hot pink (see below). And it’s covered in really fun animals, just like the border on the front. I have no idea who made this fabric- it’s more than 10 years old, and dug out from deep in my stash.


I think it is gender-neutral enough to be fine for a little boy. The green binding helps…

2 down, 2 to go.

    You’re a baby quilt making machine! I am jealous of your fabric time. I need some fabric therapy…

  3. That looks like Laurel Birch animal fabric. Woo Hoo for meeting deadlines 🙂

  4. I’m really enjoying this baby quilt parade. Do you know which gender all the babies are, or are some a surprise?

    • The teacher babies are 3 girls and one boy. The 3 babies born to friends recently are 2 girls and a boy. Girls are totally winning right now- which is great as my stash is kind of girly!



I love to find new friends through this blog, and I try to reply to all comments as soon as possible... I hope you'll consider leaving one!
