Baby Quilt for Bloggers Quilt Festival

Yes, it’s That Time Again!


How awesome that Amy puts in the effort to bring this to the blogging/quilting community twice every year!

Here is my entry to the Baby Quilt category, where I see many, many wonderful creations already.  Although I have entered the festival before, this is my first time to have two entries.  My other quilt is an art quilt and you can see it

Although I have made a couple of other baby slab quilts, this was my first attempt to go low volume and “air out” the block by alternating them with white on white blocks.

Slab blocks are such fun and a great way to use up scraps in a colour controlled way that results in a cohesive piece.  I’ve posted numerous times about slab blocks and Cheryl Arkison’s work which was what got me started on this tack.

Comments are welcome and please visit the other sites that are participating in the various categories.  You’ll be glad you did.

  1. Your baby quilt is really pretty! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog to comment on my scrappy quilt as well! Since wordpressers show up as no-reply to us blogger users (I hate that), I wanted to pop over and thank you “in person.” To answer your question, my improv blocks were 12 inches finished.

    1. Hi Kelly,

      Thanks for stopping by!
      And thanks for the info’ about the block size. 12 inches finished sounds good. 15 inches for Southern Alberta flood relief was a big large, and 9 inches can be a bit confining.

      I haven’t been ignoring you or anyone else and will get around to approving all the comments from quilters. My Firefox browser froze and on Chrome it was impossible to reset my password. I just got back in now through Internet Explorer.

      So frustrating because my traffic was up and I kept seeing emails that folks were making comments. I know my traffic was up because yesterday I actually had ads on my blog for the first time ever, but today they’re gone again.
