Its that time again!


Blogger Quilt Festival is here. Now that I am writing this I am just realizing that the last festival was that last time I blogged!! Eeek! The only excuse I have is it has been a long crazy year at school and I'm having a baby so I may have been preoccupied a tiny bit.  Not that school is winding down maybe I can get myself back in the habit. With that said let me show off my favorite baby quilt ever!!

I made this quilt for a friend of mine's first baby girl and I love it. I had been wanting to make a ticker tape quilt for a while and a baby quilt was the perfect size. It was a struggle figuring out how to get the pieces to stay put while I was quilting but I eventually figured it out.



I love everything about it-the monogram, the fabrics, and the bright blue backing. It was so hard to give away but it makes me smile every time I see a picture of baby Hannah with her quilt.

  4. I haven't made a ticker tape quilt. Is it tedious? Do you frame each square with white? or just every other one? Your H is so clever! Beautifully done.

    1. You start out with a whole piece background and then baste it to the batting and backing. Then, using scraps, I placed each piece and stitched around the square to attach it. It leaves the edges free to fray as it washes.
