Good evening dear friends. I hope you all have a great weekend and staying warm… Yesterday evening I finally finished the Baby Quilt I was working on for a dear friend…. So I can show you the step by step photos I took along the way… The above photo is of the fabric’s I choose to use… Some are cotton and flannel it is a very soft quilt….
Cutting the long strips that I sewed together too make my blocks.. about 48 of them…. my back was really sore had to do it on my floor…. but it was well worth it.
Sewing 48 triangles together for the blocks… Oh look Isabella is sleeping on the floor,,, shhhh don’t wake her,, she is not a happy camper when she does not get her nap out….
Ready to iron on the Teddy Bear’s and the bibs to the fabric, and then cut them all out… See the black fabric,,,, well those are the eye’s and nose’s, they were not very big and hard to cut and hand sew on…
These are the two finished block’s, I sewed them together to make one large block…
The Teddy Bears ironed on the blocks, with their bibs and Momma Bear’s outfit… how cute they are…
Close up of them..
The Bears sewed to one block set……… So are you all still with me???????? I know so many photos,, but it is almost over so hang in there.. OK.
Quilt top all put together before the borders were sewn on…
Borders are all on now,, it is really looking like a Quilt now… I love how the fabrics look together,, I was a little worried that they would not look good side by side,, but not to worry they are just fine….
Close up of the borders on the Quilt… OK not don’t worry I am almost done,,, I know I have said that before but I really mean it… Just so many photos to show with out boring you all to death….lol
Quilting all three layers together,, not fun trying to stuff all that fabric three layers thick into the little hole of the sewing machine… but I did it… boy I miss having my big table to sew on,,,, but I will soon….. yeah!
I did an out line stitch in the ditch to quilt it.. I used a small zig zag stitch just to add a bit of somin somin to it… And I did a button hole stitch around each bear and the out fits.. eye’s and nose… that took the longest to do,, I had such sore fingers, and sticking them all the time,, I was so afraid I would get blood on it,,, but no worries all was good…. The backing is a very soft white flannel.. so the Little one would be so comfy and cozy when using it…
TaDa!!!!!!!!!!!! Here it is all done and ready to go… it turned out really nice I think… I used the Aqua color for the binding to bring the color out to the edge.. and it looks so pretty against the white backing..
This one is sort of blurry sorry about that,, I was trying to show you the button hole stitch… OK last one coming up….. NO really this time I mean it…… oh did I hear some one say…. Yea Right….. lol’
If you look close or click on the photo to get a good look you can see the quilting I did…. I had so much fun making this Baby Quilt.. I have said Prayers as I went along sewing this,, so the Lord would watch over this new little Angle soon to arrive in the Spring… and keep him or her safe and Blessed….
OK now I am done; You can sign off my post now… OH but don’t forget to leave me a comment…. lol; I will be doing some packing this week as we are moving to our larger Apt. this weekend.. I can’t wait,, more closet space.. and a larger bed room two bath rooms,,, dinning room… patio,,,,, And Most of All MY Own room to sew and craft in…. That is the best part….. so after we get settled, I will be doing some painting and decorating,, which I will be sharing with you… And if the weather is doing fine by the end of Feb.. we will be making a trip back home to bring back the rest of our things…. So please Pray that our move is a smooth one,, we will have three flights to carry our things up,,,
Thank you all for taking the time to visit and for your prayers…. You all mean so much to me,, it is hard to put into words… I Pray for each an every one of you daily… So until next time; God Bless;
