2 Quilts finished for Baby Holden and Baby Corey

So many babies being born!!   So many of my friends are having babies right now - what a blessing. .  and what a joy to get to make so many fun baby quilts!  I love the look of this style of baby quilt.   Simple patchwork border, and solid center with the appliqued name.   Perfect for "tummy time" and . . PHOTOS!

Baby Holden, will be born to my friends the Roopers, Missy and Jason.   Their baby's room is very MODERN and colorful, full of bright orange, turquoise, grey and chevrons.

Baby Corey will be born to my friends Beth and Matt.  They have a more traditional style with boyish greens, browns, and dusty blues.

Each style equally beautiful, and equally unique.  So I had lots of fun making these together.

 A closeup of the quilting.  I went with a "modern" style of quilting for the modern quilt, and a more "traditional" motif for the traditional one.

 Here I am assembling a monkey ;c)
Quilt TOPS finished, complete with applique, before quilting.

Beth's Quilt for Baby Emma

 A beautiful baby quilt with patchwork greys in subtle prints, with pretty pink applique, border, and binding.
 Here's the top finished, and basted before adding applique.
 I do a technique called raw-edge fusible applique, and I go through all layers of the quilt.    So here I start with the background quilting first.  I'm using a paisley flower motif.

 Love the quilting ;c)

Mark's Alzheimer's Awareness T-shirt Quilt

My friends Mark and Kristen had me make a quilt out of all of Mark's Alzheimer's T-shirts.
Since most of the shirts were of similar color and shade, I cut strips of all of my purple PRINT fabrics, and used those to break up the monotony of the purple.  I think it turned out so good!
