Back to quilting...

After the BIG wedding project of making a personalized quilt for each of my bridesmaids last year.  I swore I wouldn't quilt for a very long time.  Below is a picture of those finished products.

Well, God must have a different plan for me because a friend of mine posted this link on Facebook a week ago,

Here is a description of the project and some background information:

"This time we are partnering with The Sacramento Assistance League,  by helping with one of their many philanthropic endeavors, "The Birthing Project".  This (birthing) project is part of a program provided by the Center for Community Health and Well Being, Inc., located in Sacramento, which helps at-risk and low income women.

The Center for Community Health and Well-Being, Inc.’s mission "is to improve the health and well-being of our Sacramento community and assure our families and children the best environment in which to grow and thrive."   The Center was founded in 1988 by Kathryn Hall-Trujilllo, M.P.H. as The Birthing Project, an all volunteer, community service project to lower Infant Mortality in Sacramento. They help families with both pre-natal and post-natal care, parenting classes and referrals if needed to get them off to a healthy start.
We, at Craft 4 Change would like to help them out by creating those baby blankets.  They can be sewn, knit, crochet, quilted, or no-sew fleece.  The only requirement is, that they be approximately 36" x 36" in size."  

It didn't take me more than a few minutes to check my fabric supply and confirm I had enough fabric for a baby quilt for me to decide "YES, I'll do it!"

I just started sewing last night, here are a few pictures of my work.  I will also be posting a "tutorial like" post for how to make this quilt yourself.  :)

Fabric cut and set out

Let's get pinning

  1. in step 19 you top stitch along the row seams so that the batting does NOT bunch. I left out the 'not' in the blog post. That's kind of important :)
