Blogger's Quilt Festival [Baby Quilts]

For the first time we get to enter two quilts in the Bloggers Quilt Festival! So I'm going to. This is my entry for the Baby Quilt category.

But that means making a decision between two baby quilts. Had I written this post at the start of the week it would have been an easy decision as only one of them was finished. But yesterday I finished the second one and now I have to decide. Apologies to anyone who is seeing the quilt for the second time in two days!


Because of the quilting on it I've gone for the quilt I only finished yesterday - Bubbles. This was my first ever attempt at pebble quilting and although it isn't perfect it's turned out so much better than I expected. I just love the texture that pebble quilting gives and I will definitely be doing more of this. The circles are Baltimore applique using a blanket stitch on my machine.


This isn't my favourite colour combo, but I've pushed myself out of my comfort zone and I actually really like it.

You can read more on the fabrics etc I used in this post here. Mum and Dad and baby (10 days old) popped into work at lunchtime and were thrilled with the quilt!

If you're interested to see the quilt that didn't quite make the cut.... another colour combo that I wouldn't normally play with!

I'm inspired by this quilt. You did two things I haven't gotten brave enough to try yet -- appliqued circles and a blue and orange color combo.

This quilt is really beautiful! I like your other quilt too. But this is definitely the winner. Good decision!

So cute! I love the pebble quilting--one day I will work up the courage to try it myself.
