damon quilt


I have a big family and my husband has a big family, so there are always babies being born, which means I make a lot of baby quilts.  And I LOVE baby quilts.  they are so quick and fast.  I haven't made one for every niece or nephew, but I do my best.

My sister recently had her first baby boy and I sent this quilt off to him. I love this quilt.  I love the colors and the design. (Inspired by this one.)
I loved making these blocks.  They are really quick, and almost mindless.
 I used a grey stripe for the binding
 and pieced leftovers together for the backing.
I can't wait to meet little damon.

  11. it' wonderful! i especially like the backing. good backings really make a quilt.

    nettie, i've just used your machine binding tute for the third or fourth time to remind myself how to put the binding ends together. i finish quilts so infrequently that i can never remember how to do this without help. and your tute works every single time, first try! thanks so much. =)

  15. Am I the only one who has no idea how to "make" a wonky cross block? I've never even seen one! I like it though. Is it one of those stack and slash type of techniques?
    thanks unknown expert who will point me to a tutorial :)
