Two Baby Quilts

This quilt uses the disappearing nine-patch pattern, with solids in the center, larger prints in the four corners, and smaller prints/patterns in the four middle spots.  Then I arranged them with the solids pointing out and to the center.  I used a layer cake of Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille, but you could use charm packs for the 5 inch squares instead.  This was actually the leftovers from the next baby quilt I made with the layer cake.  I don't like to waste anything!  I sent this one out to be machine quilted and it came out really pretty, I like the sashing quilting, the white really shows it off.  I used Moda off-white bella solid for the sashing in both quilts.

The next quilt was the first one I made from the layer cake and it is based on a free pattern from the Moda Bake Shop called Marmalade Squares Quilt by LeAnne Ballard. I machine appliqued the letter L in one of the blocks, this pattern is perfect for that little customization. 

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday


  1. The initial is wonderful. Great job on both quilts.

  2. Lovely quilts! I haven't made a disappearing nine patch in a long time - I might need to make another one. Great job!

  3. Great finish! Love the scrumptious fabric from Bonnie & Camille. Funny, all I can think about is Laverne & Shirley and all her L's on sweaters....
