Baby A and Baby B

 Name:  Baby A and Baby B
Design:  wonky stars, 3" squares
Size:  38 " by "46
Fabric: Stash fabrics, Kona White, Apricot and Persimmon by Carinna Gardener for Riley Blake
Quilted: by me with Aurifil white 50 w straight line grid 

I finished these 2 baby girl quilts on the weekend and was happy to deliver them this week to a wonderful Mom at my school who just so happened to have beautiful twin baby girls about a month ago.  Oh my goodness!  Two wee dolly babies.  How about that?  She is now Mom to 4 lovely daughters and quilts were definitely in order.

I made them the same but different.  One for Baby A and one for Baby B.  Little wonky star blocks made with 3 " squares.  One quilt had low volume whites for the background while the other has Kona White, Kona Flesh and some other soft hued peach and green fabrics.  The focus fabrics and binding is the feature floral print from Riley Blake, Apricot and Persimmon by Carinna Gardener.  It is a lovely vibrant floral. I used this for the binding on each quilt as well and backed them in a soft green gingham sheeting.  Super simple and just girly enough.

The quilting is simple straight line grid work on either side of each small square in Aurifil 50 wt in white.

There is just something wonderful about gifting quilts for babies.  I hope that these will be thrown on the floor for tummy time, used for fort building, snuggling and dragged around by these sweet little girls.  Made to be used and loved.


  1. Those are so lovely. Good luck to the mom with four now!

  2. These are beautiful quilts!! A great gift!!

  3. What wonderful gifts! I guess I should be making baby quilts as my daughter an her husband just today went "LIVE" for adoption! So as soon as a mother picks them, they have a baby! Could be weeks or months!
