People always ask me if I’ll make them a baby quilt for them to buy & 90% of the time my answer is no. This is for many reasons, but since I’m not making quilts to sell, I wanted to share that Quilts from the Bluffs currently has four 36″ baby quilts for sale!
These are the cutest Dinosaur quilts with an adorable flannel backing!
They are a STEAL at $50/piece & on top of that it’s a 100% tax deduction!
If you want one of these I highly recommend emailing Jeanine at firstname.lastname@example.org right now!
Quilts from the Bluffs is a wonderful, volunteer run ministry. They have given away over 300 quilts to date in 2015 & focus their quilts for those in need in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. They are completely funded by donations & the sweat of their quilters. Can we help them out folks?
This is another quilt I longarmed for Quilts from the Bluffs. Isn’t it the most darling little quilt?
I love the design & balance of this quilt.
The 9-patches are bold & distinctively stand out in the quilt. And by adding in the skinny teal inner border they gave the quilt a nice “pop”. Now your eye isn’t getting bored with looking at pink & brown.
The complementary print fabric adds texture and subtlety- see how it appears to hang out in the background & doesn’t overpower the 9-patches? This is a great use of a print fabric!
Then the added brown cornerstones in the outside border then create a sense of continuity.
For the quilting I chose the pattern “Jilly” by Keryn Emmerson
because the round design worked with the flowers in the print while at the same time the center of the swirls gives some dimension to the quilt.
This quilt is one of the best examples of traditional quilt design I’ve seen recently. I hope this quilt is kept a little girl warm this chilly winter!
