6391  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Sampler baby quilt on: January 28, 2006 05:14:23 PM
Last summer I wanted to make a baby quilt for a friend and so turned to the internet for square patterns.  I thought it would be fun to make them all different but with the same color themes.  This is what I came up with:

I was trying to make a quilt with Maple Leaves on it (since I'm from Canada) but had so much trouble with the stems that I left them out, which left me with more a flower pattern.  All I had for this was the square pattern so I had to decide how many to make, how to put them together, what borders to use and how to bind it.  It's approximately 61" x 61".  I'm open to any comments or critiques :-}

A for thread and

B for yarn.

Not sure why but that's how it is.

I have a friend who holds her hook and yarn in the same hand.  She was a knitter first and self taught to crochet and that's what worked for her.  I've seen pictures of how she holds it and still can't understand how it works.

My neice called a few weeks ago and needed help with a new crochet pattern she was trying (what are Aunties for?)  I got to her house and she handed me this two sided crochet hook which I'd never seen before - well, the short story is we got it figured out but I hope she sticks to the regular crochet hook.

You can learn if you practise - I have yet to meet someone who has tried and not eventually got it.

Regular crochet is so much fun, I should know as I've been doing it for 30+ years  Smiley

The bathing suit looks great on her but I wouldn't be caught dead in it  Shocked

What a wonderful friend you are!  Not only to make a quilt for her during this difficult time but to make it so personal.  I wish we all had a friend like you  Grin

How cute!  Glad she liked it - what a conversation piece she has - wonder how many people who see it wish they had one.

I like them both but especially the colors of the variegated one!  I love working with variegated and, for me, the brighter, the better  Smiley
