babies and their quilts

One of the best parts of making baby quilts is getting to see a picture of the baby with their new quilt. These two sweet little girls were born last year to family friends and I had the opportunity to make them each a crib sized quilt and a coordinating doll quilt.

The doll quilt seemed to be the perfect size for each of them when they were first born –


This little doll quilt was done in colors to match her nursery, and coordinates with this larger quilt


(these two quilts were sent out in a hurry, and I completely forgot to snap a few pics of my own before I mailed them!)

For the second little one, they were waiting to find out if it would be a girl or a boy, so this quilt was done in a more gender neutral color scheme. The doll quilt is a little coin quilt in shades of orange, green and brown-


And the larger coordinating quilt is the predecessor to the Animal Sherbet Squares quilt. It’s done in the same fabrics as the mini coin quilt, with a variety of block sizes and random block placement.


For the backing, I did one larger strip of all the fabrics


I had fun making these, especially knowing that they were going to these two cute little girls. I hope they’ll be enjoyed for a long time to come!
