Liam’s Baby Quilt

00briannas-baby-quilt.jpg

Baby Liam was born just after my Father died, and is all the more precious to us for it. I love bright baby blankets, and machine appliqued this one with a solid satin stitch to withstand the countless washes a really-used-baby-blanket will get. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I found this page while searching on google for a quilt and just had to tell you how GORGEOUS it is!!! Absolutely beautiful.

    Oh! I am so glad you like it, Karen! It is one of my favorites! I love BRIGHT quilts for babies!

    I was looking on the internet for inspiration for a quilt for my first grandchild and I settled on yours as my very favorite! Imagine my surprise when I explored your blog more thoroughly and discovered you live in Kuwait! I lived there when my husband was there with Chevron/Texaco from 1998-2004! I started my very first quilt there in Kuwait (never finished it, but I have a motivation this time!) which has all of the blocks done, but I never put together. I am going shopping shortly for some materials with a photo of your quilt in hand. Since this will really be my “first” quilt, I’m going to make it simpler than yours (I want to actually finish it!) with your basic overall design and color palatte as an inspriration, but I couldn’t help telling you how interesting I found the coincidence that you live in Kuwait and that I used to live there as well…..

    I currently live in Kazakhstan and hope to spend some cold winter days with my sewing machine making the planned quilt. I’ll return there in a few days so have to get busy shopping!

    Isn’t it a small world, Katie! Kazakhstan – wow. I am so impressed. I imagine it is a great place for quilting.

    I was also looking for inspiration (never mind time) for a baby quilt for my 3rd child. I’m determined to have it done before her 1st birthday (next week), so I can actually call it her quilt.
    Anyway, I’ve looked through all my books, many a picture on line, and this is the one that I’m most drawn to.
    It is beautiful, and I thought I’d pass on my appreciation- very well done, and very inspiring, 5 years later ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you, Alisa, you totally made my day. I still love that quilt, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow a stunning quilt. I’m about to start one for a baby girl and am inspired to pick bright pinks, reds and purples. Could you tell me the dimensions of your finished quilt please. M

  8. worldquilter says:

    Margaret, somehow I missed you comment, back in May. I love the idea of this quilt being done in reds, pinks and purples; it will have the same feeling. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know the star blocks are 8 inches. I would guess the green/blue blocks in the first border are 2 inches, with 2 inches on each side (the fuschia fabric in this quilt) and I would guess the border is about 6 inches. I wanted to quilt to to big enough to grow with Liam, so he could take it to pre-school for nap time, and use it to read under as a teen ager. So I am guessing total 64″ x 80″. If the borders are 8″ it would be 66″ x 84″.

    I LOVE this quilt. It has all of my favorite colors in it. This one is definitely going on my inspiration board in my sewing room. I am so impressed.
