A scrappy postage stamp quilt can highlight fun fabrics. Could these be an updated version of I-Spy quilts? My friend Rachael noted, “Any fabric is cute if you cut it small enough.” While I don’t gravitate towards novelty fabrics, in small bits I don’t mind them.
In this quilt there are dancing mice, owls, and cats. Can you find them above?
With this version I started to hit the last bits of a couple of fabrics. I enjoy seeing them spread across different quilts. Each time they add to the story of the quilts I have made. They look different than the last project they were used in.
For the backing fabric I chose the remnants I had of some yardage. That brown print is from Sugar Pop right? Years ago.
With all of my baby quilts I hand embroider the baby’s name for the back. I place them in the upper right hand corner. That personalized touch gets rave reviews. How to do you mark or label your quilts? I also have an iron on label that is placed in the lower left hand corner of the back.
I buy my labels from boodybabies on Etsy. There are a variety of sizes and shipping is fast.
This is baby quilt 13/40 for the 2018 goal.
