Bloggers' Quilt Festival

WELCOME TO MY QUILTING BLOG!!!


My favorite quilt is one I made for my baby boy. I just finished it this week, even though I was hoping it would be an Easter present. It's just a few days late. I'm still a new quilter, but I had such a great time with this quilt. I finally used some good fabrics! This is from Moda's Sleeptime by Lori Gardner. The frog prince is from a sheet of panels, and I can't wait to use the rest of the panels in more baby quilts! I even used a stripe fabric from the Sleepytime line for the backing, and the blue inner dotted border for the binding. For the quilting I just did a straight line 1/4 in. from the border seams, and then in all the squares.

I thought about stopping at the charm squares row, but decided to put another border on to make it bigger for him to play on it on the floor. So the final measurements are 33 1/2 in. square. The frog panel was 11 1/2 in. square to start. The inner blue border was 4 in. Then a round of 20 charm squares, followed by a 5 in. green border.
Thanks for stopping by and reading! I'm excited to read about all the other quilts in the festival. Feel free to leave me some comments :)

  24. HI Amy,
    Your boys quilt is very fun- just perfect for a little boy. It is very nice to meet another "quilt mom" I chose the name because my son ( who is 21) would ask: "What are you going to do, quilt mom?
    Keep enjoying your quilting adventures..
    Regards,
    Anna ( aka quiltmom)
