Baby Quilt 1 – Nautical Theme

Currently, I am working on several baby quilts, not to mention the other quilts that are not.  Honestly, I’m not positive how many WIP’s; it’s somewhere between 5-10. That’s the most I’ve ever had!!

My very close friend’s daughter, Erica, who is the mom to be, is expecting a baby boy around Thanksgiving. Did you know that pirates are a very popular theme for babies now? She purchased a onesy with a scull and crossbones on it from Nordstrom’s at the sale. And, this motif is really popular.

So I let Erica and her mom pick out the pattern, which is a simple charm square quilt with a nautical theme.



The scull and crossbones fabric will be the backing fabric and the binding.

Here are some close-ups of the fabrics.







And this is the layout as of now. I’m sure I will change it around a bit by tomorrow. I was itching to start sewing tonight, but I know, I am more pleased with my layouts when I reexamine them the next day. So I will wait.


The other two baby quilts in progress are; a low volume quilt with coral and Aqua squares, (Mom’s choice – Lisa). The pattern is by Brenda Ratliff from@justabitfrayed, and Pink Castle Fabrics. This pattern also uses text fabrics. It’s perfect for my cousin Jordan, and his wife Lisa, and their little girl; Marigold Louise from LA. Everyone is calling her, Goldie. She is so cute!!

The third baby quilt is for my friend Tom and his wife, and their second child, Clara. The pattern is spools of thread. I chose that pattern, because they own Colonial Needle and Presencia Thread. And, I am a huge fan of their products.

Today I am linking up with Lee at Freshly Modern Pieced.
