This is Labyrinth.
and this is Time to Shine.
And I just love how cute and adorable they both are!!!! I made these two quilts last July for the newly released Baby Quilts for Beginners book and I have been so excited to see all the adorable quilts ever since then. I just love making baby quilts!!! I can't help but smile when I think of a sweet little angel being wrapped up in all that quilty goodness. And this book is jam packed with 14 adorable quilts that are perfect for beginners to learn on, but also perfect for those who have a little more experience, but need a fast "go-to" gift. Most of these quilts be made up in a day!!!
So let me tell you a bit about my two quilts found in Baby Quilts for Beginners. First up is Labyrinth. When we were asked to submit ideas for baby quilts that would be suitable for a beginner, I immediately thought of Jelly Rolls. They are just so great to learn with as they mostly involve strip piecing. So I came up with this fun Maze design that gives lots of movement, but is really just an easy strip pieced block that has been rotated. So fun!!!
And speaking of soft and snuggly, how adorable is this picture from Baby Quilts for Beginners!!! I just love little baby toes, and this picture had me all excited for the quilt to return and to gift to a special little one!!!
And the second project I am blessed to have featured in Baby Quilts for Beginners is Time to Shine. You all know how much I love Star Quilts!!! Well this fun, offset trio of stars just make this little baby quilt pop :) I love the big bulky border around each star that lets the actual star really shine :)
And it's perfect for beginners as the star can be broken down to some basic stitch and flip and a 9 patch. Easy as that!!! Which again, makes it great for the more experienced quilter to use it as one of those, "I have a baby shower tomorrow and nothing to bring" gifts that can really be put together in an afternoon. Just grab three fabrics from your stash and you are good to go!!!
And that is Time to Shine!! The quilt measures 45" x 45" just perfect for wrapping up some wee little fingers and toes and pudgy little cheeks. Oh, and I just love that you can turn this quilt any direction and it will give it a new look. There really is no up or down or side to side, and that just makes it all the more fun!!!
Thanks so much for popping in today and each day!!! I just love being able to share my daily quilting adventures with you all ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
