New Baby Quilt

I decided to keep this quilt simple and let the fabric do the work.

This fabric is from the J is for Jeep line by Riley Blake. This baby girl’s daddy is a big Jeeper so I’m very excited to make this for her. I used this die to cut the white alternate squares. The prints were one fourth of a layer cake so they were already cut to size.

I am very methodical about how I lay out and then pick up my pieces. I do it the same way every time no matter how many pieces. This pan holds all the pieces and they are ready for the machine. I always use pins placed this way to keep rows together. The pin is always at the top. This keeps me from rotating things.

One afternoon last week while E3 was sleeping, I got my rows sewn together.

While I was doing that, E1 played with the dollhouse.

E2 loves to play with my little bear and his bed.

This guy also loves my toy sewing machines.

And my collection of toy Jeeps is always popular.

We spent about 45 minutes in there and all three of us had fun!

Have a great day!

    It’s always fun to see the boys at play.

  3. I thought of all my Jeep friends as I watched the Super Bowl commercial with Bill Murray. (The only thing related to SB that I watched.) That quilt is going to be so cute! Your little fellas are growing. Fun to see what they enjoy in your sewing room!

  4. What fun! I’m guessing they keep you very busy! Kudos to you for having all 3 at once. I can handle one nicely and I am about to find out how to handle 2 at a time, but 3?!!! Love the quilt!
