Bits & Pieces

Addalyn’s shower gift

Published on 08/16/11

We had had several new babies born in our church over the past few month and this last weekend was baby Addalyn’s shower. A few years ago I made a group of 7 kids quilts as a Christmas gift for a family that had taken in several foster children at the holidays. This is baby Addalyn’s family – so she obviously needed to have her own quilt. You can see all of the other quilts here. I LOVE making baby quilts. It lets me play with fabric on a smaller scale and it makes such a wonderful and lasting gift.

I made her quilt with fabric I have had in my stash for at least 8 years. I used the old churn-dash block pattern that my grandmother used to use a lot. I had figured the number of blocks I needed wrong – so I ended up putting them on point and adding some solid squares. I also did not have a pattern – just a drawing – and I ended up making my half-square triangles a little small. My points are all missing – at least I am consistent. (Oh bother!) I quilted it with a large feather that went through each row, at an angle. The backing is pieced with leftovers from the front.

Carrying on mom's tradition of baby quilts, but at a much higher level. I like the hummingbird.

These are very pretty. Is your quilting done by hand. I started trying to quilt in January 2011. I really enjoy quilting. I am involved with the club at Susans Sew & Vac. One day I hope mine can be as nice as yours are. Where are you located?

Thanks for the pictures. Melody

@ Melody Thank you! I do all of my quilting on my Bernina 150 (domestic machine). I am located in Pensacola - actually quite close to the shop you mentioned.
