Checking things off my list for 2012

16 comments
I have a list of things that need to be done this first quarter of the year. One of them was finishing these baby quilts for a friend. She asked me to make these at least 7 months ago or so and I've been sitting on these simple baby quilts. Finally I am able to check them off my list.
The fabric is a retro novelty print. She brought me fabric in 2 colorways and the pattern. I supplied the fabric for the 9 patch blocks and the inner border as well as sewing the tops together. In return she gave me a painting I have hanging in my hallway. I was happy to trade her for that.
My friend has a granddaughter and a niece that will receive these quilts. I just don't have the time to machine quilt them for her so I gave her back the finished tops to take to the quilter. I may be able to help her bind them though, if needed.

Whew. Glad that is done!

Rae Ann was working on a similar pattern (different fabric) up at the cabin. A great way to showcase some lovely novelty fabrics. I love the simplicity. Nice job!

Love the "girly" baby quilts!! Nine patch is one of my favorite blocks. All the fabrics look great and these will be much-loved quilts, I'm sure!

Beautiful tops, Nanette. I'm sure your friend is pleased. I love that they're coordinated but not identical.
