Uneven Nine Patch Quilts


I enjoyed making these simple baby quilts.  They are just a large uneven nine patch block made with two coordinating fabrics which were 1.5 yards.  The inner section is 24 by 34 inches and the borders are 8 inches wide. 

I bought the fabrics when a quilt shop nearby was closing earlier this year.  They are all Riley Blake/Penny Rose fabrics. 

I quilted the first one on my Tiara. 



I quilted the second one on the Bernina Q24. 



I found it easier to quilt this design on the sit down quilting machine because I could keep the borders more continuous.  I chose a simpler border design on the second one to make up for that. 

The first one has wild quilting in the center, feathers in the border, and flowers in the corners.


It has a cute red with daisy stripe binding. 


The same red daisy is on the back. 


The second one has a heart/swirl combo in the center, circular loops in the border, and flowers in the corners. 


It has the same red daisy stripe binding. 


The backing is the cute strawberry print from the top. 


They both finish about 40 by 50 inches and will be donated somewhere soon.  (I might take them to the local Project Linus.)

I love simple baby quilts!

  4. Simple baby quilts are the best when you want to showcase the fabrics. The quilting is beautiful. Both of your quilts are adorable and there's going to be two very lucky babies somewhere who I hope will treasure them.

  10. Just LOOK at these beauties! Beautiful quilting Jasmine, ahhh! I want to run my hand over them, (okay and stuff my face in them too). Angela Walters has a terrific tip for how to do continuous feathers in a border on a longarm. Think it's in her Feathers Craftsy class.
