Another Baby Quilt

This is a baby quilt for a little boy of some friends in our old "home" town of Munich. I ended up using quite a few organic fabrics (Cloud9 for the foxes and frogs, Birch Fabrics for the green abacus print) in this. Cloud9 fabric is wonderful. I love their ethical approach and their quirky designs. I have not come across as much Birch Fabrics, but what I have seen so far has been lovely.

I designed this quilt in EQ7. It was great for playing around with the layout and colour scheme, but I still made some final changes once I had sewn up the blocks. I quilted using a large cross hatch pattern, but left out a large diamond in the middle. My next "to do" is to actually use my Grace quilting frame as I don't think this particular pattern did this quilt justice.


I used long strips of the various fabrics featured on the front to make the back. It is now with its new owner in Munich :-)

The Quilter's Clock

It's quilt o'clock!

It has been a looooong time a) since I posted and b) since I made something. Actually, I did make a few things these past months, but I did not take pictures of everything and I only managed to do one quilt (sob!!!). This is one of my smaller projects, and I am filing this one under "I really wanted to try it out but maybe only once". It was a pattern from Fat Quarterly and is a paper-pieced clock.

I love the colour combination but it was a real challenge to get everything facing in the right direction. I used some Kaffe (I LOVE!!!), some Tula Pink and other pieces from my stash. I am a bit miffed about the alignment of the zigzag fabric (that's the Tula Pink fabric). It was supposed to be random, but three pieces ended up very similar, one was different.

Overall, I loved making it because I am a bit of a paper-piecing devotee. I love getting the seams so clean and well lined up!
