Baby Quilt for Baby Bryce

Baby Bryce's quilt is all finished!

This baby quilt was made using fabric blocks signed by all that attended the baby shower. Each person took a block and made a picture, left their own special message and signed it. They were then sent to me along with information on how the nursery was being decorated. I based the layout of the quilt on the blocks and the information I was given. The nursery is in a jungle/safari decor and she chose a blue/brown theme. I had 18 decorated blocks, so to make up a 20 block quilt I added a square in the upper left hand corner or a giraffe and the lower right hand corner with an applique of a zebra that matched the backing fabric. The border is a light blue background fabric with little dots on it. It was bordered with a borwn fabric with yellow swirly circles. The backing is a baby jungle/safari print.

Baby Quilt for Baby Bryce

My newest custom order is for a baby quilt that is made from blue and white squares which were brought to the baby shower and everyone there drew a picture and put a little message on each one. Besides the squares, I chose fabrics to co-ordinate with both the squares and the nursery theme which is a safari theme.

My first step was to arrange the blocks in a visually appealing set.

Then I layed out the strips that are going to sew together with them to see how it would look and to get an approval from my customer before I sew the front together.
