TGIFF - Quilts for DT

I made baby quilts for DT back in September 2014 in advance of their arrival.  Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge is a good friend, so there was no question that I would make quilts.

Fast forward...DT have grown and love playing with quilts, even walking around the house dragging them.  So I decided to make "walking around" quilts for Christmas.

I didn't realize that I hadn't bought enough of the animal panel until I sat down to get working....the week of Christmas.  So I had to change my design plan and went with their names surrounded by lots of negative space and the animals at the top and bottom.  I've blocked out their names for privacy reasons.

The following Kona are in GT's name:  Morning Glory, Cypress, Orange, and Azalea.


And the following Kona are in BT's name:  Water, Carrot, Chartreuse, Chinese Red, and Grellow.  And Baby Blue for the background.


This was the first time I tried fleece on the back.  I will definitely do that again...it's so soft.


If you have a finish this week, stop by the following to link up and to see what others have finished:

  2. I, too, like the design. It's simple but cute and adding the names in coordinating colors really does the job. I've used fleece but have since learned that there's a particular way to load it on the long-arm so that it doesn't stretch or become as distorted. I guess I got lucky the first time, but I'll definitely keep it in mind for the future. Like you, I love the soft feel.

  3. I love the animal prints! And this is a great way for a simple yet personalized baby quilt. I'm sure Jenn's kids will have a blast carrying them around the house! :)

  4. Visiting from Whoomp There It Is. Creative use of a panel! I'll have to keep this one in the back of my mind as a quick gift quilt idea!
