Day 5 - For Baby

173 comments
I love to design and make baby quilts. I also make prototypes of full sized quilt designs in baby quilt size. When I entered the Fons and Porter Baby Quilt contest I originally sent 5 baby quilts. They are all cute but the Cascading Baby Blocks and Stripes quilt that they kept to use in the magazine was by far my favorite. Today's item up for grabs is a baby quilt I made using the mosaic idea. Each of the 4 sets of squares is unique in color and pattern. I made the original mosaic quilt 4-5 years ago. You can read about it and see pictures here. It is huge and I love it still. There are also pictures of this baby quilt in that post too. This is a one-of-a kind quilt. There are no others. It was designed, pieced and quilted by me. And it has the "One of a Kind from Freda's Hive" label on it. Wowie - aren't you impressed! (not)
You never know when a baby quilt might come in handy. I usually have several in reserve and since I enjoy making them so much it isn't a problem - I have at least a dozen.
Go ahead and "Freda's Hive" today and if you get your name picked this baby girl quilt just might be something you will have delivered to your door - like it or not - if it is the last item standing.

I'm still working my way through the comments but I am telling you - deciding the winners will all be done fair and square. Thanks everyone. Have a great Thursday. Holy Cow it is already the 11th of December today! EEK

Love the baby quilt - such pretty colors.

Funky Kim said...

What a pretty quilt for some lucky baby!

Country Log Cabin Quilter said...

That's a very cute baby quilt! I think it's a great idea to have some quilts on hand to give away. I need to work on that with some of my many scraps. I think that in 2009 I will try to do that. Please add me again to the drawing!

MichelleB said...

What a lovely little quilt! You do such great work.

hetty said...

Love your baby quilt!

Kim said...

Another WOW!!!

I love this quilt and have had intentions of making it at some point. You have lots of fun things to give away and I think a quilt tops them all. What else do you have up your sleeve? I look forward to tomorrow.

Love ya, Kim

Cynthia said...

Those are really pretty, and I like the idea of making prototypes in baby quilt size. I am thinking of designing quilts soon and that is a good idea.

Suzan said...

Ooohhh...cute quilt! I need one for a baby gift. What a way to "cheat" a little!! Please "Hive" me!

calicodaisy said...

Gorgeous! And great colors, too. If I would win this prize, I would definitely hold on to it for a grandchild down the road.

Nancy said...

So cute! And I love your label, I want to win just for the label! I can't believe that the celebration will be over in 2 days, I might go into withdrawls.

Sue H said...

Oooh, I have to "Freda's Hive" today -- I love this little quilt, and I have my fingers crossed for a first grandbaby in a year or so...please count me in!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Me. Me. Me, I just have to win it!!!!!

Rachel said...

Day number five -- post number 5!! Woohoo! Cutie Quilt, I haven't made any small quilts yet, but I am seriously considering it! :)

Thanks for the chance to win!!
Rachel

Patricia said...

I love the quilt! I'm hoping for another granddaughter someday as I only have ONE (out of NINE) It's crazy when all those little boys get together. Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us!!! It's fun just to feast with my eyes.

Trisha said...

Actually, I am impressed! Nanette, you amaze me! I didn't know you entered that contest and they picked your quilt. That is so exciting! It is a beautiful quilt. I don't think it will be the last one standing.

Nancy said...

I love to make baby quilts also. I need to get a stockpile started, my nieces are approaching "that age" where baby shower invites will start showing up in the mail.....

Joyce said...

Love IT! I don't have a grandbaby quite yet but I am hoping too someday! I promise I will not let my puppies chew it or even get on the quilt. Love your blog!

audreypawdrey said...

This is absolutely beautiful! I have four showers to attend this spring so this would be so helpful. Of course, I would be attempted to keep it for myself...:)

Carla said...

Oh I would love to give that beautiful quilt to my new granddaughter due in April!!

Nedra said...

Yes, as a matter of fact, I am impressed! I think one of my goals for 2009 is to work on some baby quilts and have them ready for presents just like you have done. It seems I am at that age when everyone my children's age are having babies.

Sherri said...

Beautiful quilt! I LOVE baby quilt patterns...I wish I had been a quilter when my children were little. I've decided just to start making baby quilts, though...I'm sure I'll be able to find some one to give them too!

belinda said...

..me.....coffee cup in hand......oops!....am i early?...well.....it's 9 here at my place....oh well...let's have a look at that oh so fab baby quilt.....WONDERFUL!!...everyone will WANT this....but since you and I are new best friends (wink..wink) no one stands a chance...right?...uh..right?

Terri S said...

Beautiful quilt!! You're full of surprises this week. I'd be honored to win this!!

karenfae said...

What a wonderful quilt, I like the way the colors are arranged, you took a little bit of time with that color arrangement.
I am enjoying your blog and look at it day to day.

Messy Karen said...

i do love this block you have done. a dream for scrap lovers. but simply sweet for a baby.

Brooke said...

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! ;-)

Tina said...

Happy Thursday Nanette. I like the idea of making some baby quilts and having them on hand, but I can never seem to do it. Thanks for the fun.

~D Spack~ said...

I love doing baby quilts also, the size is do able. Love yours, and yeah, huh Dec 11, it's getting scarey!

Julia said...

EEEK indeed for December zipping by! (here's hoping one of my mutitude of pregnant friends has a girl!!)

Linda said...

Such pretty colours that you've used in this quilt Nanette. I have to admit I don't have any in reserve, (not here anyway, but then I don't know any young mothers either.....

Jen in NY said...

Happy Thursday Nanette! I love the colors in your beautiful baby quilt. Amazing that you have so many in reserve! You're my hero!:-)

I know, can you believe Christmas is two weeks from today?! I can't!! --Jen in NY

tara said...

How sweet. Im going back to look at your link to the original. Thanks for another giveaway.

Judi said...

Love that baby quilt. I am impressed! I need to get some baby quilts made as I'm getting older and all my children's friends are getting married. Thanks for being my bright spot everyday! Hugs

whimzeestitches said...

What a gorgeous mosaic quilt! Happy Thursday - it's snowing in New Orleans this morning folks!!!

Fiesta said...

Nannette I have alovely grandaughter who would be nice and warm in that adorable quilt.

Simply This and That said...

Oh goodness! The BIG quilt is one of my favorite's! Now a baby quilt. Oh so cute. ;o) And that label is classy! ;o) Missed most the week this week. I have much catching up to do. But congratulations on your Blogiversary! ;o) ooxx`jod

Pat said...

That is such a HAPPY baby quilt! I"m so excited to have found you AND to be "Freda Hiving" so much this week!!!

rachel griffith said...

SUPER cute baby quilt nanette.
i'm not sure why...but it reminds me of the easter egg hunt at the end of the movie steel magnolias.
i'm sure you've seen it.
it's one of my favs.

LOVE it.
and i LOVE your labels.
they are too cute for words!!!

did you "freda's hive" today???
I DID I DID I DID I DID.
:D

John said...

I'm definitely "Freda's Hive"-ing today. This is one great gift! I hope it will come to me. So far, I'm 4 for 4 ... you can count on me being back tomorrow!

jenny said...

The "threat" of winning the baby quilt "like it or not" is almost enough to deter me from entering a post today. While the quilt is lovely, I have eight baby quilts on reserve, which definitely is more than anyone needs. But I am so with you on making them - they are my favorite kinds of quilt to make.

julia said...

Hi,
oh what an adorable baby quilt. I haven't got a baby myself - but this makes me want one very soon ;o) - well, I think my sister will have one first...she so want to get pregnant...
Such a beauty - I'd feel honored if I'd win this beautiful quilt.
Cheers, Julia

epban said...

The baby quilt is beautiful! I'm enjoying "doing the Freda's Hive" everday this week!

Kim said...

THIS NEEDS to be a pattern - I'll buy one ;)
I love it- such soft colors.

Michaela said...

I love the quilt!
This is probably my last Freda Hiving since I will be on the airport tomorrow.
I will be checking back from Slovakia.

LizA. said...

So pretty! What a great idea to have baby quilts "waiting" the arrival. Then I wouldn't have to scramble to get it done in time for the shower.

em's scrapbag said...

What a sweet little quilt. I went and saw your larger version. You are so gifted.

Des said...

Smart idea to make a baby size to test out the pattern. You think of everything.

Cute label. Darling quilt! I forget, is the magazine out yet? need to check it out for my freda hive!

Melissa said...

You are just so talented! I love it!

Natalie said...

This quilt is beautiful. I love it!

Sandi said...

I agree - EEEEEEK! I have so much to do and the time is slipping away! I just love this little quilt. I like the nine-patch block in the middle as nine-patch is one of my favorites. I would love to be the lucky winner of this one-of-a-kind quilt!!!

Kathi said...

Very cute. What little girl wouldn't want to be wrapped in this. Love your label too. I've never seen one like that.

Heather said...

Beautiful! I plan to get married relatively soon, and hopefully babies will follow not long after. Here's hoping I can cuddle a baby in this!

Jeanne said...

How sweet this little-girl quilt is!
Happy Thursday ~ Jeanne :)

Mary L. said...

What a darling and generous gift! And look at the number of comments! Wow...everyone would love to have a One of a Kind From Freda's Hive, including me.

Quilt Monkey said...

Great idea to have baby quilts waiting in reserve. I had one baby quilt top hanging around that I was recently able to tie and gift to a new baby. It was very handy becuase it was a very busy time for me.

This week is so fun -- thanks again!

Annette said...

Yes I am VERY impressed. This quilt is so sweet and so is the original you made. And congratulations again for being printed in Fons and Porters. That is awesome! This has been a fun week playing "Frida's Hive"

Mary Beth said...

That is a lovely quilt. It would go super in my baby's nursery! We are trying to decide the color to paint her walls. I could pick the color from the quilt! Pick me!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dionne said...

Absolutely gorgeous! Of course, I hope I win, but whoever goes home with this beauty is going to be tremendously pleased. I continue to be be both in awe of and inspired by you!
Cheers,
Dionne
PS - I put another link on my blog "Did you Freda's Hive today?" I just really enjoyed that story so much!

Kathie said...

oh my gosh a quilt made by you :) and a label to prove it!
how wonderful is that!
it is adorable !!!
Kathie

Nadine said...

Ooooh, I REALLY can't miss this one! It's sooo cute (and between you and me, would be sooo useful in our family ! HeeHee....)
So I'm once again crossing my fingers AND toes - very hard - that you'd pick me for this one ;>)
THANKS, for all those wonderful giveaways, Nanette !
XOXOXOXOXOXOXO
NADINE

CJ said...

This quilt is so sweet! I love the colors, very soothing but cheery at the same time. Great idea to make up a few ahead of time. I have made a few for gifts but tend to make them the week before the shower. HEY! I saw the magazine yesterday!!!! Your quilt looks great :D

Already 12/11 and I have no tree up yet!!!

Purple and Paisley said...

wow - are you kidding me? you're giving away this quilt? i love it! mom is like you (or vice versa)...she crochets little borders around flannel receiving blankets and always has a dozen or so on hand "just in case" a baby gift is needed...=)

Joanna said...

I've just got to 'Freda's Hive' today! (Love that saying!)

The baby quilt is lovely - hmmm if I were to win it, maybe I'd have to have another baby to go with it. I think I'd rather just borrow a friend's baby and snuggle with it for a while until the feeling wears off. Yes that's what I'd do!!

Lola....L..O..L..A....lo--oh--luh! said...

Nannette!!
You are my hero!

Mommy's Home!! said...

What a beautiful quilt - would love to win it for my baby due at the end of May!

jodie said...

Oh my...this is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Stephanie said...

Pretty! I also have many baby quilts handy. I love making them because they're fun and quick. I like instant gratification.

Jackie said...

Okay, Nanette, I just soooo love this quilt! The 30's repros are such a favorite of mine and they look so wonderful in your mosaic quilt. If I won this one, it would be certain to be loved in my home. What a terrific giveaway, it just can't be topped!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Well, I am completely impressed with the baby quilts! How long have you been keeping your baby quilt stash? What a good idea.

Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

First let me say congratuations of being chosen for the magazine! What an honor! I can certainly see why it was chosen ... your quilt is gorgeous!

Let me tell you where this quilt will go if I were chosen as its new owner. I have a dream of a "Hall of Quilts". We built our home going on 3 years ago and have a long hallway which has remained bare. Oh there have been so may suggestions of what "needs" to be there but No ... I want a wall of small quilts. I will make them some day but I haven't had time yet! LOL That is where this little darling would live!

It really is lovely. You must be so proud of your work. Will you show us the other 4 that you submitted? Pretty please?

Christmas blessings,
Lea

Kristin said...

I have been trying to get a reserve of baby quilts for some time now. It seems that the babies are coming along much faster than my reserve! Love the quilt.

Stina said...

Ohhh...now I definetly have to try out and see if Im lucky here... My best friend just had her first grandchild a little baby girl... and there has been some problems with the little one so they still are at hospital... so I´ll cross my fingers!!! :o)

Amy @ Park City Girl said...

How fun! I love baby quilts too - guaranteed fast finish :)

RobinE said...

Holy cow, indeed! The time is just flying by! Feel free to send that wonderful quilt my way-- it is just lovely. Perfect for a little one to snuggle up under (and I know of quite a few little ones brewing up who will be needing quilts). :)

Doris said...

Wow, girls, you know how to celebrate with style!

Natalija said...

Adorable baby quilt:)
My sister's baby will come into this world on July. Unfortunately almost 2000 km separates us & I'll not be able to pamper her baby as I would love it, but I'd be more than happy to present this baby quilt, as I know how much love you put in every thing you do.
Let's cross the fingers :)

Catherine said...

This is unbelievably adorable. I love it!! Kitties are crossing paws that I win one of your prizes. :-)

Alisa said...

What a lovely quilt. Your work is just so beautiful and always a pleasure to look at. Some baby will surely be wrapped and cuddled in cuteness!

Momoo said...

Unlike you and Jenny, I have no baby quilts in reserve so it would really be neat to win yours.

Anne said...

Congratulations on designing such a cute quilt. I'd love to be entered in your drawing.

Christina said...

I thought I already left a comment but can't find it. But I want you to know that this is one of my favorite blogs to get inspired by.

Susan said...

Could it be that this adorable, one of a kind, baby quilt would come to me?!! I hope so.

Jeanne said...

Such a pretty baby quilt! You are so generous.

Leah S said...

Oh please don't remind me of the date, there's so much to do!

Ginger Patches said...

I think this is my favorite so far...I would have to go back and look to be sure (and when I win I will--go back and look). Can you believe I made it back again? I am on a roll!!

KSedlak said...

I love this quilt. It is so beautiful

Happy Thursday!

Kritta22 said...

I would love a One of a Kind from you!! All these fabrics are wonderful!!!!

Fran said...

Please do add me! I have 3 friends expecting their first babies in March, so I was planning to start work on quilts after Christmas. I haven't made a baby quilt before so inspiration would be great!

Simone de Klerk said...

Lovely quilt, Nanette, I love the way you quilted it. It looks so nice on the back too (O: You must be very very busy at the moment! All your time will probably go to you blog these days. But isn't it fun to read what other people think and that they admire your work! Good luck with all your comments! Have a nice day. Groetjes, Simone

Lovie said...

I also make up baby quilts, they are a fast way to see if I want to make a quilt in queen size. I am always able to find homes for baby quilts. I give them to the local Army base for part of the new mothers gift kit. . . .Lovie

Mary Grace McNamara said...

What a beautiful baby quilt! With new babies arriving in my family practically every few months, I can never keep up. It would be wonderful to have something this nice in reserve!

It amazes me how many different projects you can come up with for quilting. I guess I need to think "outside" the box! Your lovely baby quilt is a wonderful item and I am sure whom ever wins it will be thrilled. I know I would.

Busy Little Quilter said...

I agree having baby quilts on hand is a great idea. It always seems like someone in the family needs one, or even some for charity.

The quilt is beautiful. I love the label. That's a great idea to make a baby quilt first before you make a larger one.

Eileen said...

Oh man! I LOVE this quilt.. and what a prize.. a quilt with your signature!
This is so totally awesome all the entries! So exciting!

amandajean said...

this is a gorgoeus quilt and a generous give away!!!

I know...it just CAN'T be Dec. 11th already, can it be?

Nan said...

Oh My Goodness! I miss a few days of your blog, and here you are very generously giving away the most beautiful things! Congratulations on being published. I cannot find that magazine! I have looked and looked - I'm not giving up though!
This quilt is so beautiful, and I would consider it an honor to have something created by you.

It's lovely

deputyswife said...

What a beautiful quilt. There are no more babies in my future (whew!). Though I have a friend having a baby girl in nine weeks!

Dawn said...

Hivin' a little late tonight! Did a little....ok...a lot of Christmas shopping. The baby quilt is ultra cute!...gotta have it!!

Busty LaRue said...

I bought the F&P baby quilts magazine yesterday! I love your quilt!! And I love the quilts shown in this post. You are so talented, and someday I hope to have half the talent you do! :)

Kerry said...

Hi Nanette,
Back for another calendar checkoff! How lovely, who needs a baby to enjoy such a pretty quilt. Hope you're having a good day.

Love the quilt, it would be awesome for the baby girl my newlywed daughter promised me someday!!

Sherry said...

Oh my, that quilt is so pretty. Love all the colors & your one of a kind label.

Karen Dianne Lee said...

Again, with all the people! I just want to say I was here and I was thinking how beautiful these baby quils were and the work is divine. But I'm scared with 158 comments so I'm going to hide. ;)

sewtakeahike said...

I love it Nanette! You probably get tired of hearing this from me but I am just in awe of your quilting skills! I'm more in awe of your giving spirit though, you are such a blessing!

Valerie said...

This is gorgeous. I love it.

Tonje said...

What a beautiful baby quilt. I just love the colours you've used.

qltnbe said...

Well, what better way to help the karma of getting a baby granddaughter than to have a baby girl quilt on hand. I have two grandsons and DD#1 is expecting again. I have high hopes it will be a girl. I would love to be the recipient of this beautiful quilt.

jennyflower said...

Got to win this so I can meet you! No seriously- can appeciate this gorgeousness from over here and hope it goes to an equally gorgeous baby!

Bec said...

Oh my gosh this is GORGEOUS! I love your baby quilts, you do such fantastic work! Count me in for the draw.

lindanuts said...

I love this handmade quilt and it would be doubly nice to have something so beautiful that was made by a fellow blogger.

kjb139 said...

This quilt is darling! I love the colors and your label too!! You are one talented lady! I like baby quilts too and my dearest friend who is a lot younger than I just had twin boys in October, so I have to get busy right after the Holidays and make two quilts..the same, but different!!

Kathy in cold Massachusetts!

Kigwit said...

I like the idea of having a stash of gift quilts. I keep meaning to do that for my knitting but either my DH or kids run off with anything I make!

Rebecca said...

Wow - beautiful job! This would be so sweet for our next babe.

mommycall said...

The baby quilt is precious. With just boys, I don't get to use pink or flowers often. My sister is pregnant and this would be perfect for her!

julie said...

What a gorgeous little quilt. Any Mum would love this for a new Bub. Count me in....past the bub stage
Julie

brigette said...
