Wendy’s Baby Sailor Quilt

Wendy owns one of my local quilt shop gems, Among Friends Quilt Shop. Just the fact that she is able to own a shop AND find time to piece a quilt is pretty amazing. I don’t own a retail store and I can’t seem to find the time to piece anymore! This patriotic baby quilt […]

Leah’s Zoo Animal Baby Quilt

Leah made this cute baby quilt with some adorable zoo animal fabric.             She selected the Double Bubble all over, edge-to-edge pattern. It adds great whimsy to the quilt. I don’t know what the name of her pattern is but this looks like a pretty quick and easy top to […]

Jen’s Baby Quilt

Jen brought me this sweet baby quilt she is making for a sweet little angel in her family. The quilt top was premarked with hand quilting lines. Of course, hand quilting motifs and machine quilting motifs are very different so I had to modify them a bit. You’ll find a hill behind the wagon full […]

Nursery Rhyme Embroidery Baby Quilt

My last post showed Susie’s Five Little Monkies quilt for one of her expected grandbabies. Here is the second one. She did some delicate embroidery in the center of each block with different nursery rhyme themes. I framed each embroidery and added freeform daisies in the corners of the frame. You’ll find all your favorite […]

Five Little Monkeys Baby Quilt.

I swear, Sandy’s monkeys quilt is one of the top ten best quilts I’ve ever had cross my path. I wonder if she’d notice if I applied for adoption so I could get a quilt like this from her? 🙂 I used Hobbs 100% cotton for the batting and outlined all of those fabulous embroideries […]

Baby Quilt with Hearts & Bow Tie Memorial Quilt

Karen’s heart quilt was my focus today. First I imported a photo of her quilt top into photoshop. Then I began drawing on the quilt so I could audition quilting motifs. Here’s what I finally came up with. I still have to work out the border motif. I’ll post that when I get it done. […]

Judy’s Rail Fence & A Precious Baby Quilt

I just love it when I get to quilt someone’s very first quilt.  They have such a great sense of accomplishment!  I know I was so proud of my first wall hanging. In fact, it still hangs on my wall to this day.  Wavy, pouchy, bumpy goodness and all. This is Judy’s first quilt.  Let […]

Baby Quilt from Friends & Family: A New Spin on Signature Quilts

Here are more of the original blocks made for Phyllis’s granddaughter’s quilt.   I’m so impressed by the love and care put in each of these blocks.

Purses Quilt & Non-Traditional Baby Quilt

Sarah's Purses Quilt, quilted by Angela Huffman

Sarah’s purses quilt is finished!  Yeah! I tried to take photos of the purses but the background filler on the white fabric is freaking my camera out and the stitches aren’t showing.  You can, however, see the daisy chain in the inner pink border. This quilt was so much fun to work on and I […]

Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!

Bug Jar Quilt Boy Quilt

Linda finished another bug jar quilt.  My kids love it when I work on bright novelty quilts like this.  I did a meandering butterfly with a few dragonflies thrown in.  The frog on the top will get a button eye.   Linda made this quilt for her grandson.  Lucky, lucky boy!  Perfect boy quilt, don’t […]

Noah’s Ark

Panel Quilt

Here’s a baby quilt I finished for a new client. She is giving it to her itty bitty great grandson. Lucky boy!      I really liked how she elevated the center panel with her pieced pinwheel blocks. The fabric uses storm clouds as a theme. It is a perfect companion block! Quilted Joy Blog […]

Water World

Fish Quilt

Isn’t this baby quilt great? I used a water freehand meander across the top and stayed off of the fish so they would pop up in a trapunto effect. My client agreed to use a variegated King Tut blue thread that adds to the water shimmer effect. I think it looks amazing! Quilted Joy Blog […]
