My Latest Baby Quilt

I am behind in my grandchildren's quilt making.

My tenth grandchild was born last year on Father's Day. This quilt top was finished before she was born but I finally got around to quilting it. 

I hadn't known how to quilt it and so it wasn't until I had put it on the frame that I knew what I was going to do. 

I had taken a few quilt stencils out - mainly ones that had hearts.

A few close-ups.

It was a lot of fun deciding where to put the different hearts.

Finished quilting and off the frame.

I was undecided as to what binding to put on it. At first, I was going to use one of the rainbow fabrics I had but both my middle daughter and I thought it would be too much and in the end, I went with a mauve.

Sorry the lighting isn't all that good.

I liked putting this whole quilt together. It was a free pattern from Sew Can She. I was thinking of making one or two of her other patterns when I have the time.

I thought the hearts on the label were a nice touch. This is a better photo of the colour of the binding. It's a bit lighter in real life.

Here she is at Christmas. I had a photo of her with the quilt but I somehow misplaced it in one of my photo folders.

I trust everyone is social distancing. I hear that some people still don't have a clue as to what that means - and self isolation. Hopefully, things in this world will revert back to some kind of 'normal' soon.


  1. That is a lovely quilt for a sweet little girl! I admire your hand quilting, and the label is like a cherry on the icing.

  2. Beautiful quilt and the heart quilting. What a little sweetie too!
    I know some people are rebelling - I guess some are in tiny flats so understand the need to be free, but for my part I'm staying put - I have no wish to catch this awful thing!
    Stay safe and to all your family too.

  3. What a darling quilt, I love all the special quilting and the really sweet label! Well done Dolores. That picture should be framed, just precious!!!
