Bloggers Quilt Festival

It's Blogger's Quilt Festival time again!! A lovely time when we get to enjoy a fantastic quilty display from bloggers all over the world!!

Joshua on his quilt

Here's my entry. A quilt for a brand new baby, Joshua.


This is a small quilt, measuring 28.5 inches x 36.5 inches. Perfect size for a bassinet or pram or just for having a kick and a play.


In this quilt I've used some of the red and grey designs from Aneela Hoey's Sherbet Pips range and I've added in some Kei Honeycomb in red and grey and some Robert Kaufman 'Ring Toss' in pewter.


The binding is a simple black and white stripe.


And the backing is a Michael Miller red and white dot.


And finished off with a Patch Andi label in red.


Baby Joshua's big brother needed a present too. He has become quite the little car enthusiast. (Well as much as you can be at age nearly-two!)


These gifts have been given and much appreciated! (Big brother's eyes lit up and he said "kah!!!")

I hope you have enjoyed my entry into the quilt festival.

Fantastic quilt for a baby boy, Andi! I bet Joshua will not only enjoy using it, but he be fascinated by those fabrics. Lots of interesting blocks to look at.

Great entry, Andi!

I've liked Sherbet Pips since I first saw it. I must get some. I love your combination with the Kei Honeycomb and Ring and Toss. Great quilt!

Just perfect for a baby boy! I love the binding stripes or polka dots always to the trick.

I used the same quilt binding for the last quilt I made for Evan4. He's (most unfortunately) a Collingwood supporter, so it was the only choice, really.

Very cute quilt. How lovely are those 'Pips'.We have a house full of those Matchbox cars and they all get a turn. I am pretty sure my son has them catalogued in his head.

What a lovely baby's quilt! Lucky baby (and parents!)
I love your work,thanks for ahring it!

Jennifer said...

andi--

i've been wondering. do you sew that label on the backing before or after quilting? i typically fold over and sew into the binding, but i've been liking these types of labels lately. i'm just not sure about the best way to attach them.

Katie B. said...

I love that you made the Pips work forma boy quilt! It's super cute.

Katie B. said...

For a boy quilt, of course.

Marg said...

Gorgeous quilt and baby. I think it's the first time I've seen only the red and grey used in Sherbet Pips and I love it, it looks fantastic teamed with the other fabrics you have chosen.

What a charming little boy quilt. Love the novelty scooter print. And the contrasting colors, stripes and dots are great to stimulate little eyes. Kudos

Terrific--but I love all your stuff! (You're in my Google reader and in my listing on my blog). I like your approach to the modern slice of quilting that has helped the industry launch into a fresh new way of doing things. Carry on! Quilt on!
