I love making quilts. I love that you are essentially making something that will wrap somebody in a warm and cushy hug. I love that a quilt is an heirloom that can passed to another generation, even if it is a little worn.

I love that quilts can be made in all sizes. Baby size. Lap Size. Picnic Size. I love how quilts are all warm and crinkly when they come out of the dryer.

I love that quilts can look like a piece of art. Or that they were stitched together from scraps of fabric and look homemade with love.
Both quilts are baby sized, approximately 40" x 40". The first quilt is made from this charm pack of vintage sheets, and backed with a vintage sheet. Binding is DSQuilts gingham. The second quilt is made with DSQuilts Sugar Creek and done with my favorite scrappy binding.

Both quilts are now available in my etsy shop :)


  1. These are both just beautiful! I love the colors you put together:>)

  2. I totally agree with everything mentioned in this post. Quilt making is an art in itself. So satisfying for a creative soul. Lucky babies to be owners of these cuddly sweethearts one day. :D

  3. The colours are great and love all your reasons for quilting.

  4. I love how you used that fabric. Both quilts are beautiful.

  5. What a bight, beautiful and fresh quilt! This might tip me over the edge to actually finishing my first one!

  6. Love both the quilts with all the colors and the bright white. Quilts just make you feel all warm and fuzzy, don't they.

  7. Such fresh and pretty quilts in beautiful fabrics! Quilts are such a joy to make and to use, and make lovely gifts for others to treasure.

  8. These quilts are so lovely! Again, I love your choice of fresh springlike fabrics with the white.
