We recently showed off some of our readers’ more traditional baby quilts. Tonight we want to highlight some vibrant ones that have been recently shared with our quilting community at 24 Blocks on Facebook. We’d like to say “Thank You” for everyone who has uploaded a photo of their work. On a Monday like today, baby quilts are heartwarming.
We’d like to thank Susan Majure Gandy not just for posting such a pleasing and happy baby quilt, but also for giving our readers information about the pattern and its source. Susan writes,
“…hereis a baby quilt I made for a good friend. It is from the book CuddleMe Quick by Christine Porter and Darra Williamson. The pattern is titled “Rubber Duckies”. It is machine appliquÈd and quilted.”
It is just so cute…like an armada of duckies. Does everyone see that one duckie has a mind of his own? It would be a delight to babies and toddlers and parents alike.
This is just one of the three amazing baby quilts made by Jean Giorgetti for her three great-nephews. Each one is very different. She created this rooster for the first little boy, including his name in patchwork. Her other two quilts are based on wonderful car and airplane themes. In all, Jean reports that there are 1102 very small squares in this quilt! It is vibrant and something we are very pleased to crow about!
Barbara Boyle writes that she made this “I spy” quilt for her twin sister’s newest grandson. The baby’s mother is a veterinarian, so Barbara tried to include as many animal pictures in the fabric as possible. “I spy” quilts are so good for toddlers and Barbara’s combines that “sleepy-time blue” with colorful fabrics to make a very lovely work of art.
If you’d like to share a photo of one of your own quilting projects, or a much loved vintage quilt, just come to our 24 Blocks Facebook page and upload a photo. Our readers always like to have pattern information so, if you used a pattern, include the name and source if you can. We also love quilts that are original designs, quilts made by new quilters, charity quilts, memory quilts, and those with family stories.
