{ Vintage Baby Quilt }



It's done! I actually FINISHED making it! I'm pretty proud of myself as I think it turned out pretty darn cute & that it only took me a couple day's working on it here and there.
The quilt kit came from Quilt Taffy I think I'm going to make another but I want to make a twin size for Brinley. Don't know if it will work or not as that's a whole lotta fabric to be wrestling with while trying to stitch it all together.
Sigh.....decision's are the worst! :)


Edited: The Fabric used for this quilt was from 
April Cornell's Poetry collection.

  11. That is wonderful! I also bought that kit from Quilt Taffy, and need to get it done before February as it is a gift for a friend. I'm very worried about using the fabric adhesive and all that, not used to doing things that way, so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it works out!

  15. What a beautiful quilt. I can't believe it only took you two days. Are quilt kits that easy or are you just that good? I love your blog. Hope you don't mind if I visit once in a while.
    Thanks, Lisa

  16. ACK!! It's fabulous! That Bridget, she can get you hooked on all sorts of bad habits, not to mention that horrible music she listens to. :)

    I've thought of a twin sized as well, and here is my brilliant thought. What if you did it in sections? Then when you have the sections finished you could sew them together, wrong sides facing and you would maybe have cute raggy seams going in a grid around your sections???? make sense??

    Just a thought. Your pictures are great!

  20. Awesome! That is such a cute pattern!
    You did a great job!

    I agree with you. That would be a lot of fabric to wrestle with. What type of machine do you have?

  50. Hey there,

    Back for a second comment to tell you...
    A) I ordered this quilt (pattern) from Quilt Taffy. Thanks again! I think I got her last one.

    B) When I opened your page just now, my little princess G was standing next to me and said, "Oh, can we order that baby?" speaking of your little pumpkin standing next to her new quilt.

    I laughed out loud and knew I had to relay this to you. : )
