Emma’s Baby Quilt

I finished my newborn cousin Emma’s Baby Quilt!

I used Ann Kelle’s fabrics again (Remix and Urban Zoologie). Aren’t these dogs just the cutest?!
Emma Quilt Detail Fabric and Quilting
I simply cut 6” squares and sashed them with 1” white strips. I added a 6” piece of white fabric and appliqued the letters with a zig zag stitch.

I added my nametag in the lower right corner:

And added a pieced backing (using almost all of the scraps from the top):

And then I messed it up.
I stitched in the ditch and as I can’t change the position of the presser or walking foot, the fabric was shifted so much the quilt is completely wonky now. Urgh. I hope Emma and her parents won’t mind. It doesn’t show that much after washing and drying – it was far worse before.
Here’s a closeup.

I’ll add a visit to my local Pfaff Dealer to my to do list. Chances are I’m just too slow to get how to change the height of the foot. There’s no hint in the manual though.
Overall I’m quite happy with Emma’s Quilt, I just hope that her parents will like it. It’s not the usual pink-rose-pastels-version…
That’s it for today.
Happy Sewing!

  1. Oh heavens, Miss Emma is very VERY lucky to have you sewing for her Christine - what a perfectly adorable quilt! I love the fabrics (especially the kitty cats, hehe) and the colours and the design - you did a beautiful job!! I saw the quilt posted @ Quilt Story and had to come over for a peek!

  2. It looks fabulous and heck when it covering up its recipient, any wonkiness just makes it more 3D.

    I really love the fabric and your applique name is perfect.

    Great job Christine.

  3. I like her name which came out beautifully;) Love all the red ladybugs too!

  4. So cute! The ladybug fabric is my favorite and I really like adding names to quilts too.

  5. It's really cute and believe me, once it's been loved (and washed!) lots no-one will notice any slight imperfections!!

  6. I love it, the colours are really great and black/red is really in here for babies (the old french women are shocked when their kids say we're going to do the baby room in black and lime, or black and red) i've got some remix to do a plus quilt with but adore the scotty dogs too... she's a lucky baby.

  7. So cute! The fabrics are great for a baby quilt!

  8. Gorgeous fabric choices. It will be loved! Sometimes it is the simplest of solutions. Don't you wish the manuals had more in them. :)

  9. Whoop Whoop! That is so cool! I just love the name appliqued on there :)

  10. Tolle Stoffe und tolles Design. Auch die Buchstaben sind superschön


Thank you for stopping by and taking time to leave me a comment. You make my day :o)))
