Babies, Babies, Babies

This week has been a baby week for me. Here are the finishes:

Baby Girl Quilt "Star Light, Star Bright"


Donation premie quilt for my quilt guild

Two more premie quilts for the local hospitals.

For Christmas babies!


The premie quilts are so quick, just 24" x 30" -- no batting and a flannel backing, minimal quilting. Some members of my guild celebrate their birthdays by making their age in premie quilts! Impressive.

The Star Light quilt measures 38.5" square. Liberated stars. Quilted by me in the ditch around each block then outlined each star. The backing is a yellow gingham, binding is gray stripes from Amada Jean Nyberg's Good Neighbors line at Connecting Threads. The other fabrics are from my stash.

My cat has been walking around my sewing room, so after a wash, these will be on their way to babies near and far.

Connecting with CRAZYMOMQUILTS for Finish it up Friday.



  1. Love your star quilt 0 so pretty!

  2. The Star Light quilt is adorable, I really like the colors! Your Christmas quilts are reminding me that I need to get going on some Christmas projects. I think that is amazing that some women in your group make their age in quilts!! Wow!

  3. Very nice quilts and so lovely that they are for prems (my son was a prem) - I am sure they will be gratefully received.

  4. Wonderful that you are creating quilts for preemies. As many preemie quilts as your age? Oh wow! How impressive! (for some of us even more so!)

  5. The Star baby quilt is so cute!! I love all the colours.
