Quick Baby Quilt

My friend has just had a baby girl. I finished this cot size baby quilt in a record time (mine), 3 hours from start to finish.!! I chose the pattern named 'kid toys 2 e2e' by Deb Geissler for the quilt. It matched nicely with the front panel (quilt top). In the process, I have learnt to flip the pattern horizontally for alternate rows. I was also practicing using the 'relocate' function of Creative Studio to get things moving along smoothly during the quilting on my wonderful Gammill Statler. All fabrics were from my (full) cupboard. I didn't need to spend time searching further away from home.! It is my intention to try to use up what I have already had (way too much - but this is a relative term, depending on one's perception. :-) ). I have washed the quilt and it's in the post for Baby Prisha. I hope the blanket will keep her warm during the first winter of her life, and would be her play mat for the rest of the year.


  1. Lovely Emma, and I keep saying that I'll use what I have but sometimes the temptation is just too much.

  2. I know that too well, Susan. :-)
