Two More Baby Quilts


Check out these two cute quilts for baby girls.Call me an old fuddy duddy, old fashioned, not with it, and out of sync with all those folks who are young and cool.

I just don’t seem to care for the current colors that are deemed fashionable.  Especially brown.  Brown is a good color for mud, Utah, or even brownies.  But not clothing, especially if it is something that I have a choice in wearing.

Our little granddaughter was given a brown dress with pink polka dots.  I can understand the pink polka dots.  But brown?  For a baby?  Sigh.  And to make it worse, she doesn’t have any choice in what she wears.  She’s at the mercy of her young-and-fashionably-with-it mother.

However, when I went fabric shopping for material to make a quilt for our granddaughter, what ended up in the bag of purchased material that I took home?  Why, brown material with pink polka dots!  It twisted my arm and threatened me with bodily harm if I didn’t buy it.

I do like the coordinating fabric that is pink with brown polka dots. And, when I added the ruffled edging, I decided that I really did like the quilt. (Guess I’m not quite as old fuddy duddy as I thought I was!)

I do think that there is a Kodak moment in the making — as soon as our granddaughter grows into that brown and pink polka dotted dress.  I’m just hoping that when wearing that dress and we lay her on this quilt, that we will be able to see her.  Maybe she will show up on better on the pink side.

I like the color yellow.  So perky.  So bright.  So cheerful.  So not brown.

When I saw some flannel material with cute bunnies, hearts, and trains, I couldn’t resist it.  Especially when I decided to put yellow flannel on the back.  (I had to do something to compensate for buying that brown fabric.)

Flannel fabric with rabbits, trains, and hearts make a darling baby quilt to wrap up a baby in!

This quilt is so snugly warm! I can’t wait to wrap up my granddaughter in it and hold her tight!

It feels nice to have finished making these baby quilts!

Thanks for sharing!

    I see you make the brown and pink blanket with the old fashioned knotting style. My Christmas gift for my DH for Christmas was a hand made (no machine for me) bedspread for our bed. I also used the knotting technique…. We have four daughters, one son, three grandsons, two granddaughters and one each great grands. We also have a new gr grand due toward the end of summer 2011. Everything we gave this year was hand made… whether blankets, wall toppers or canned apple butter or home made sandwich spread (my Mama’s recipe). I already have the new arrival to be’s blanket already finished!!! Have a blessed 2011….. Godbless
