This weeks show and tell are my children's baby quilts.
I made this quilt in 1991 when I was pregnant with my first child. It is the second quilt I ever made. I got the pattern from a TV show. It is strip pieced and hand tied. There is no binding on it, I just folded the outer border around to the back and hand stitched it. I had a lot to learn.
I made this quilt in 1997 when I was pregnant with my second child. It is Debbie Mumm's Noah Ark fabric. It is the first "real" quilt I ever made (blocks, sashing, borders, hand quilted, binding...), I was so proud. It was the first quilt I quilted with a hoop. It is still proudly displayed on a chair in my bedroom. I used Judy Martin's "Scrap Quilts" book for most of the blocks (some I just graphed out). Both quilts are 48"x48".
When I made both quilts I just bought fabric I liked (although 19 years ago there wasn't a big choice!), I didn't know before hand if I was having girls or boys, it is funny how they both turned out "colour appropriate".
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! ♥
