Over the weekend, I made TWO, yes, TWO baby quilts.  My friend Darlene asked me to make a baby quilt for her great grand-baby, expected in August.  The colors she wanted were pale aqua, pale green and mocha and she mentioned a lot of white.  I pulled the fabrics from my stash.  The fabric that looks black is really a brown pindot.

I've been wanting to make The Super Stars Quilt from Fresh Fabric Treats.  The quilt is too large for a baby quilt, 70 x 70", and uses pre-cuts.  I love the design, so I pressed forward and adapted.

The background fabric is a white on white, for a little interest, and the backs feature a simple strip of dashes of color.  The quilts are 50 x 50".

These are my two supervisors, Lizzie, who's 14 years old and Dudley, he's 12.  They're great dogs.

In case you're wondering why I made two, Darlene didn't ask for a second quilt, but she's actually adding two great grand-babies in August.  Her daughter is becoming a grandmother, twice - not twins, both in August and I wanted to be prepared.  Now I have to wait for the long are quilter to work her magic.

May your bobbins always be full,


  1. Love them all! I wish I could spend the time you do making things for other poeple. Maybe this winter...Love the stars...thought they were almost Ohio stars. Keep up the gret work!

  2. These are lovely - so fresh.
    I wish I had a friend called Darlene! What a great name. Not one you come across in England!
