New Baby Quilt Project

This is the first block of a baby quilt I am making for the newest addition to our family.  My niece's family will be welcoming a  baby girl to family this spring.  Both the block and the sashing are made on my new embroidery machine.  I probably won't finish the quilt until after the first of the year but I wanted to see how it was going to look.  I really like it. I'm using fabric from my 1930s fabric stash for the sashing and border.   I make a quilt for each new baby in the family. 

I've been away from blog land for some time.  I was hospitalized the end of October and continue to recover.  It has been slow going but I feel better each day.  Haven't accomplished much in my studio but I'm hope to change that this week.

Hi Pam, I'm sorry to hear that you were hospitalized. What happened? I hope all is well now. This baby block is so very pretty. I love the design and the colors of the fabric. Take care! Tammy

So glad you are feeling better and back to the embroidery machine and quilting. Love the 30's fabric and of course the embroidery block. I bought some baby fabric today for the first time in awhile since my stash has been depleted. I'm now inspired to make a baby blankee or two. Hope you continue to get well....missed ya!

Pam, I wondered if something was wrong. Glad you're on the mend. The new baby quilt is precious. I love the colors and the embroidery is wonderful. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. How lucky are all the new babies in your family!

Hi Pam,

Im new to your blog but found it during a search for inspiration for a baby girl quilt for my sister's best friend. I was wondering if you would mind sharing where you got the embroidery design - it is darling! I'd say you're off to a great start :)
Take Care, Lynne
