Baby Quilts

I have been sewing baby quilts lately. This quilt actually was a one block quilt measuring 22"x22" called Pieces of My Heart by Sassafras Lane Designs that I found on Craftsy. I made four of the blocks and added a border.

After talking with a new mother and consulting with several blog friends about a backings and battings for this, I ended up using Ultra Cuddle fabric with no batting. Quilting was done on my DSM using a walking foot in straight lines.

From the left overs I pieced this quilt. Once again I used the Ultra Cuddle for the backing with no batting. The quilting was done on my Handi Quilter Sweet 16 in an all over large meander.

The top quilt with the hearts was given to my brand new grand-daughter, Miss Addy. The other quilt will go into my donation pile.


  1. Lucky babies! Be sure you don' let facebook steal too much of your quilting time.

  2. These are sweet blankets and will be well loved by the little ones.

  3. beautiful baby quilts I am always making baby quilts to donate, I find them fun to make as well as use up some scraps! I have made that heart quilt too with a different border.
    the second quilt never did the zig zag horizontal always did it vertically, very fun!
    thanks for sharing
