raspberry stripes baby quilt

One baby quilt down, 5 to go. I am determined to keep these baby quilts simple since I'm already behind on them (the babies have been born). I did simple stripes with blues and pinks--not one of my normal color combinations, but I think I like it. I didn't really like this quilt while I was working on it, not sure why--maybe because I did some loopy quilting, but now that it's finished and washed, I like it. The back is my favorite part! The quilting is really sloppy--if I was a redo-er, I'd have picked it out and started over, but I'm not, so sloppy it will be.

  2. ashe family,

    I believe the daisy fabric is by valori wells, it's one of those I've had for quite a while. It's really pretty.

  3. Very, very cute! I need to try quilting like that. . . stippling just takes too long sometimes! The fabric on the back is sooo cute! And I love the blue with the pink.

  11. Your quilts are beautiful! I cannot imagine a baby caring about 'sloppy'. I know I would not! Wish I new how to quilt. =)

  12. It's very cute! And let's hear it for the non-re-doers who can accept less than perfect work! Who wants to spend time picking out all that stitching? LOL. I actually think it kind of adds an oddball charm to these quilts that will get used and washed a thousand times before it completely disintegrates (hopefully). And I think it helps the recipients actually use it seeing that it's not supposed to be ironed, starched and displayed somewhere. Love it.

  15. OOOOOO, what a wonderful quilt. It's absolutely perfect for a child. I think your loops are great. As a matter of fact while I was scrutinizing this quilt I thought, "darn, I wish I could make loops like that".

  33. Nettie...wanted you to know...I am still loving every single quilt you create. You are one talented lady. Your random choices of fabrics really go perfectly together, as well as the patterns you put together. And then there is always the beauty of your backings! Quite spectacular, really!

  35. Hi, Thank you for your wonderful blog site. Your quilts are so beautiful, I love your quilting technique, I just have to dive in and do it. My first big step into free motion quilting hopefully this weekend.

    I came across your blog through
    camp follower bags (creation) I am participating in a blog hop through Trends and Tradition w/Heather Mulder and I am hooked on quilts. I enjoy viewing other quilters in the use of color and techniques. Keep up the great quilting.
