Wild Fish

 The start of this quilt was all the 153 bonus 2.5" squares cut from the Twister Table Topper  project. Cutting a few more squares resulted in 16-patch blocks.


Together with the aquarium fish fabric this charity quilt turned out pretty "wild".

Then it's good to have a more calm fabric on the back. With this one the child can cuddle up and count sheep before falling asleep.


This is my fourth charity quilt for the year 2022, and number 83 all time for the children's ward at the hospital.

Keep on quilting!

Baby Quilt

We've had lots of snow this winter, but finally there was a bright day to show off the latest baby quilt on the wall of my deck.

 This quilt is destined for a little baby girl. I searched my stash for good looking fussy cuts, and here I have assembled 16 of them cut to 2.5" squares. Solid frames in bright colors were added around the animals and teddy bears, and in the end the frames were surrounded with a soft flannel fabric.

 The main quilting was done with the walking foot, a fancy zig-zag and straight lines. The backing is a cute double gauze with lots of bunnies.


 There are many recognizable animals and other objects in the squares. I also added some hand quilting around the fussy cuts.

 Fussy cuts are fun, what about a zebra in a suit?

All fabrics in this quilt is from my stash and scraps, that's a win-win situation.

Keep on quilting!
