My cousin had a baby last week – gorgeous boy Ben.
I decided quite early in the piece to make a quilt for him, but didn’t know the sex at that stage. I made a quilt with different coloured stars (60 in all). Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t pick up the colours very well. It was the first time I’d tried a paper-pieced quilt, so it was certainly a learning experience! It’s far from perfect, but I’m happy with it and I hope Ben gets a lot of use out of it.
The was the site I got the free pattern from: Star Quilt
WOW looks really good,
That’s beautiful, my wife does quilting so I know how much work has gone into making it, and she has giving it the big :tup:
It’s beautiful Bel, well done. 🙂 I have never done English paper-piecing, it’s on my ‘to have a go at one day’ list.
That’s a great idea to make the baby quilt in those gorgeous colours and a style that will last Ben forever really. The problem I would think with babyish baby quilts is that they are out grown so quickly.
Nice job Bel.. well done :clap:
Beautiful work Bel :clap: :tup:
You finished it, Bel! It looks fantastic — well done!
Thanks guys. It was a lot of fun. I’ve been collecting bits of silver and purple for my next project. They are my sister’s favourite colours – thought I’d make something for her. 🙂
Bel, Very fine work! I am making my first ever quilt for my 3rd baby thats due in 4 weeks! Just teaching myself how to do squares, and it’s taking a long time. I don’t think this baby will have the quilt right when it’s born, but I wanted to try something new.
The stars look as though they would need great skill to look as nice and uniform as yours do!
Thanks Vickie. No great skill involved – just a lot of perseverance and a good quik-unpick! I reckon I probably did the quilt twice over by the time I corrected all my mistakes along the way! I like to learn things the hard way…..
Good luck with your next baby!
Wow really impressed!
