Baby Quilt Finished

The Batik Baby Quilt is labeled, bound, and on it's way to the new baby boy.  I've done many baby quilts for this client, and she always asks for quilts that will grow with the baby into adult-hood, not too "baby-ish".  This batik quilt fits the bill.

I quilted the center with straight lines, forming an 8-pointed star in each block, and used the same curved line design in the border that I used on the last baby quilt.  All ruler work, done on my APQS George.

Fabric Fun

It's so much fun to dig through  my collection of batiks and pull fabrics for the placemats I've been making to  list in my Etsy shop.  The color play is addictive!  Can't wait to start sewing these together!

Batik Strip Quilt Top

Yesterday I finished piecing the top of this Batik Strip Quilt that I mentioned in my previous post.  Borders are on and it's ready to baste and quilt, once I find a backing fabric.  Time to go fabric shopping!

A New Year, A New Quilt

I rang in the New Year in my Cotton Cellar, working on a custom quilt order.  My client asked for a Winter palette of dark blue, green, and gray batiks, so this is what I selected.  I think it's just what she requested.

I'm using a Tube Strip Set technique I learned from this Missouri Star Quilt Company video.  It's a duplicate of this quilt that my daughter pieced, and I finished for this same client, other than the color scheme.

And while I was waiting for those batiks to arrive in the mail, I put the borders on my One Block Wonder quilt.  I hope to quilt it soon...
