Quliting for Baby

 Quilts with love

Babies are coming and I have been really busy with holidays and family...but still I have managed to finish three little quilts.

I have used the gorgeous 'Sleepy times animal pals' embroidery pattern from Nanacompany, all Amy's creations are inspirationally lovely. The pattern was originally designed for a dolls quilt but I scaled it up a little to make this dear bassinet quilt. 
My favourite fabric 'Milk,Sugar and Flower' from Elea Lutz is just so storybook sweet.

This bassinet quilt is very simple just machine appliqued 'Leaping Lambs' and diagonal quilting at about 1 1/2 '' apart.
I usually sew my binding onto the wrong side of the quilt then fold it to the front and machine sew.

This is the little cot quilt I made from the most gorgeous fabric, unfortunately none of my photos were that good...they don't do it justice.
The little yellow check is just the softess warm maizey colour and the wee grey mice dance all over the quilt.
 It is made from five inch squares with a top border of the mice fabric and trimmed with narrow cotton lace.
I just loved the mice fabric which I got from my lovely local store 'More Than Fabric'  and still have some left for some other project.
Well that's it so happy sewing
