There are two wonderful new additions to our family! Two of our nieces had babies recently, which means I can finally share the baby quilts I made for them.
Both of the baby quilts were based on the Star Cluster block pattern by Judy Martin. Her pattern is written to make either a 12" or a 16" block, but I scaled it up to finish at 32". Then I added some borders so each quilt finished at 40" x 50".
The first quilt to be finished was made in turquoise/teal and golden yellow with added borders of flying geese. The second photo has light coming from the side, which lets the quilting stitching show up better.
Here is the flannel fabric that was used on the back.
The second quilt has even more colors, and the added border is pinwheels.
Of course, the best thing about making baby quilts is seeing their new owners with the quilts. I received wonderful photos of them from their mothers. The quilts look very oversized with the newborns, but I know that won't last long. We can't wait to meet these little ones in person!
