I just put my latest baby clothes quilt in the mail to my customer. Every quilt project is different and has it's own challenges. This quilt includes a lot of older baby clothes belonging to the customer as well as garments that her children had worn. Some of the older garments required a bit different handling than the newer ones. I know that this quilt will bring back a lot of memories for this super customer.

I appliqued a number of pieces from items that weren't big enough for their own blocks. I love this one from a daughter's baby underwear. Sooo cute!

This is another piece from her son's items. A hat, I believe. I cut a circle of the fabric and appliqued it to some matching solid fabric.

I backed the quilt with some nifty fabric from Debbie Mumm. It picks up the different colors from the clothing and has a nice pattern. It also made the bloom very pretty.

Stay tuned as I will be doing other quilts for this customer using a great variety of garments.


  1. Barbara..I really like this one, the colors worked well together, and your little "touches" like with the applique are darling. Great job.

  2. This is another wonderful baby quilt. Love them all!

  3. Beautiful job, Barbara! Love the bloom from the raggy edges.


Thanks for stopping by!
