scrappy rail baby quilt

I got this quilt finished up last night, and I am very happy with it.
I've mentioned that I really like anything American Jane, but I am so crazy about these doll clothes, cute!
I ended up piecing the back of this quilt, I am really trying to NOT buy fabric--I want to use what I've got--No, I must use what I've got.

and all 4 baby quilts stacked (my favorite) together.

  17. So cute!! The back really matches good. DO you quilt on your own regular machine? You do a great job. I want to learn how to do it on my machine to save myself a little $ and maybe eventually make a little on the side too. Super cute quilts! Jenn

  29. I think the scrappy rail is my favorite out of the stack.

    Although having a favorite might suggest I also have a least favorite...and that's just not possible with the work you do.

  33. Your quilts look great...I have one question for you though...when you have a different coloured back from the front do you use two different coloured threads when quilting? Thanks!

  59. Hi! What are you using for your batting? I am making my first quilt right now, and am finding my batting (a bamboo mix) is just too thick. It'll be nice for a winter layer but for summer I'd really like something thinner.

    Your blog is eye candy and inspiration galore! Great projects.
