Photo-laden post...

my niece asked if I would make a baby quilt for her boyfriend's sister's baby, so, I did:

Here's the tutorial from   It was quick and easy.  I made an additional one, too, and let my niece choose which one she liked better.  I'll show the one she didn't choose when it's all done.
I thought FMQing was appropriate and didn't try to make the flowers and hearts perfect so it would look like a child drew them.  I think I succeeded!
On a side note, I love the name of her blog, "don't call me betsy".  I work with someone whose name is Mary Beth and SHE says, "Don't call me Mary Beth!"  So, what does she go by?  Betsy!  Just a small example of how we are all so different in this world, and we need to respect each other and embrace our individuality.
Have a great weekend!

  1. What a sweet quilt, they baby will be packing this around for years to come!!!

  2. Sweet quilt and love the backing fabric - do you mind saying what it is?

  3. It's really cute! The fabrics you chose make a great baby quilt :-)

  4. Your quilt lines are great for a baby, fun lines and hearts. I like all the bright squares on the front, and that silhouette backing really made me smile! Great choices in all, and a really sweet gift ~

  5. I just found your blog through another. Glad I did. Your wee quilt is beautiful and the backing perfect. I am your newest follower.


I love to hear from you!
