Here are 2 baby quilts I recently finished:

This one went my nephew and his wife:
She picked a lavender crib set with butterflies.


Here's a closer view. I handstitched the bby's name onto it.


This one went to a friend:
Again, I stitched the baby's name.


I backed them with a soft furry fabric.
I'm so mad, the picture with the full view is missing!  Arg!

Oh well! Enjoy! C&C welcome.

HOw did the backing quilt up? I was looking at backing a quilt formy nephew with a furry/ fuzzy or a flannel backing, and I was told it wouldn't quilt, or it wouldn't wash the same.
How did it work out for you?  They are both beautiful

"Heirloom" is  code for "This pattern is so difficult that you would consider death a relief.

I actually hand tied these.  I am not that comfortable with machine quilting yet anyway, so this was the best option for me.  Also, I use fleece for the batting, so it didn't need a lot of quilting to keep the batting from bunching or shifting, just some tacking here and there to keep the three layers together.

Flannel would probably do fine for quilting though, I recently did a quilt with some flannel, and it looked like it would have done fine quilted the traditional way.

I am doing some "Quilts for Kids" (www.quiltsforkids.org) kits though and they have to be machine quilted, so I guess I'll be getting some more practice!

These quilts look so snuggly!  Love the colors.  Where did you get the pink paisley fabric in the last quilt?

I got it at Walmart.  It was about a year ago though, so who knows if they still have any.  You might be able to get them to order it though...
