More Quilts for Kids!

Kids quilts are just so much fun to make! Every step of the quilt making process is so much easier in the smaller size. Plus it goes to a kid - hopefully to be snuggled with!

I recently finished up 2 quilts that I have to share today...

 First up is a baby quilt that I delivered yesterday. It's for my nephew and his wife's new baby, Arthur (aka The Amazing Arthur)

I used a go-to pattern, Pow Wow by Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew. I've made this one several times now and it never disappoints in any color combo...


I used simple loopy quilting all-over...


I wanted a black and white for the backing and I had this cute print from Cotton and Steel in my stash. Unfortunately, I just had a small piece left, so I pieced it into a simple black and white print to make a backing. I love how it turned the back into somewhat of an I-Spy Quilt. They loved the back!


The second quilt is for my guild's charity program and the fabrics were all pulled from my stash. It's a simple star made with half-square triangles.


I used my walking foot to quilt straight lines in the star points and more free-motion loopy quilting in the background...


The backing is another pieced together one. I had a small piece of the Lizzy House Cat fabric and pieced it into the backing. I'm hoping a child will enjoy that bit of whimsy.


And that's it for today! I've been trying to little down my WIP pile, so I hope to have a few more finishes soon!

  1. Beautiful finishes that are likely going to get a lot of love and use. It's fun when people appreciate the details on the quilt backing, like the Cotton + Steel print you put in for Arthur.

  6. Congrats on downsizing the WIP pile :) Love the first quilt. The pattern is great - and as you said, looks very fun in a lot of Options - this one reminds me of time at the beach/ sea with water melon in hands :)
