So, the AB Baby quilt is done. This was my One Monthly Goal (OMG) for June and also #2 on my Second Quarter Goals for the 2018 Finish Along. I’ll be linking up to both those online challenges as the link-ups become available.
The quilt will be for our soon-to-be-born granddaughter Evie. The letters were cut from a panel from the fabric line Nature Walk by Tamara Kate, and the pattern was published to go along with the letters. I used fabrics mostly from about 4-5 of her various lines (I love her stuff!). There are some other fabrics in there too, but the lion’s share is Tamara Kate fabric. And so is the backing. This print comes from her newest line, Joy, and I thought with its gentle print of butterflies and flowers, etc, it was the perfect complement to the top.
The quilt finished at about 52x62”. I used a plain ol’ stipple to quilt it, and then bound it with the gray stripes print that had originally be auditioned (and rejected) for the sashing strips.

And since I had another recent photo on my phone, I’d thought I’d share with you a picture of Mr. Cat himself - Alfalfa. I can’t imagine anyone would mind a picture of such a handsome chap!
Bruce is off work for this week, so we have been puttering around the house. Yesterday was garden work (in the morning) and errands (in the afternoon). Today was cleaning (Bruce - his bathroom and man cave/laboratory) and for me it was Weight Watchers, sewing, and the phone-techy stuff. Tomorrow we’ll probably go visit Red Butte Garden again in Salt Lake to see the roses at their peak and to get some sunshine, then go out to lunch. The weather here has been mild (mid-seventies) this week, so we’re going to enjoy it to the max!
I feel your pain! I got my first i-phone for Christmas and I'm still learning. Never was an Apple girl, but my kids told me if I wanted them for tech support, I'd better get an i-phone!ReplyDelete
That is an awesome quilt!! I still am laboring along with my I-phone, LOL!ReplyDelete
Lovely baby quilt. It's a great way to use that alphabet panel. I hope the tech pains abate soon :)ReplyDelete
Love the baby quilt, it came out beautiful Cathy!ReplyDelete
This one is just adorable, Cathy! I love the scrappy look of it, with the sashing you put on each alphabet block. That backing fabric is wonderful, too! A great finish!ReplyDelete
Gosh I love that baby quilt! Here's the news, never spoken to anyone yet by me. I am going to be a Great Grandma. I'm already a great grandma, but now I will be the next generation grandma. To quilt or crochet or maybe both. What a dilemma.ReplyDelete
I am an Android girl. And unlike most, I like Google. I'm sure its a Left Brain control thing.
We are patiently waiting for sun. It's coming along with heat and humidity. We can't win in Northern Indiana.
Beautiful finish! The backing is so soft and sweet, and the grey stripe is perfection for the binding. Congratulations!! This is the most wonderful gift for your most wonderfully anticipated arrival, little Evie :)ReplyDelete

What a lovely gift which is sure to become a family heirloom. I've had my Galaxy 7 for almost a year and still can't figure most of it out, but it's my first cell phone, so I'm still in learning mode.ReplyDelete
The AB Baby quilt looks wonderful! I love the bright, airy feel of it!ReplyDelete
Kitty scratches to Alfalfa - he is indeed a handsome fellow!
That's a pretty special baby quilt - I'm sure it will be well loved. Don't envy you the new phone learning curve. I'm still using a plain ol' basic phone and don't have any desire to switch up to anything fancier. I hardly ever use the thing and just have it for emergencies.ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilt! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish!ReplyDelete
Such a gorgeous fabric line! You made great use of it in your quilt design! Congrats on this beautiful finish :)ReplyDelete
I can relate to you on so many levels. We just welcomed a granddaughter--our first, I'm also trying to learn a new phone that's having trouble syncing with other devices, and there are many cat pictures on my camera roll! Your quilt is lovely, what a lucky little girl to receive it! Congratulations on the quilt finish and the new arrival.ReplyDelete
A beautiful finish and a very handsome chap. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for linking up to the FAL, on behalf of the global hosts.ReplyDelete
