Ginger Blossom Baby Tumbler

18 comments

I finished my Ginger Blossom Tumbler Bows baby quilt. Acutally I made 2 of them. I'm going to sell one on Etsy (it just sold) and give one to my new grandniece when she is born. I have an extra set of blocks all cut out and I'm going to list it as a kit on Etsy (including pattern).

One fat quarter of each of the fabrics in the line will make 2.5 tumbler baby quilts. So I augmented one of the quilts with extra fabrics from my stash that coordinated with the colors. And for all 3 I added some little pink bird fabric for a novelty. I machine quilted them with stitch in the ditch.
I love putting minky on the backs of baby quilts. It just makes them extra soft and special. The Ginger Blossom fabrics are quite bold but I think they are attractive for a young mom and baby.

I love the colors that you used! So cute. Thanks for the baby advice, btw. I definitely should've been stricter to start with...let's see how it goes now! Thanks again!

Jen was telling me about this line of fabric. She was going to buy it but knew she would never get around to making a quilt. It is so cute. Love your ability to put colors and patterns together. Your the best,

Love, love the quilt. The ginger blossom brought out the pattern beautifully. Any baby (and mom) would love this. The colors will raise the babe's IQ by 50 points!
When is it going up on Etsy? Nerm

What a good idea to use Minky for the backing. I'll have to remember that when I make a baby quilt for my grand-niece due in June. Your Tumbler pattern turned out gorgeous.. LOVE those fabrics!

SEW very beautiful Nanette! I've been making baby blankets the past few days with Minky backs but I can hardly even tie them, let alone machine quilt that slippery stuff! I'm very impressed! (and congrats on the quick sale!)

My fave too (ala PKM's comment)! What a perfect pattern for Sandi's wonderful fabric. It's simply beautiful Nanette!
