{Post 1,484} Three Mini Quilts Finished

I have a customer for whom I have made a 12" quilt for every month of the year as well as an everyday one.  The everyday is my favorite.  Truly.  Here it is first:



Here are July and August (obviously):



I like them all.  I don't know what I was thinking, saying I'd make them all for her.  Quilts take so much longer than I think they will.

We had vacation Bible school all last week.  It was draining.  I did very little sleeping or sewing!  Insomnia--the silent killer.

I want to make a few quick baby quilts to have on hand.  Anyone have a favorite quick pattern that finishes about 40" square?

All are so nice! I have always wanted to have a set, but never gotten around to it. No favorite baby quilt. A good idea, though, to have a few on hand. Have you ever had a sleep study?

Very nice mini quilts Joan! I had that very same "what was I thinking" comment roll through my brain when I agreed to make a quilt for someone years ago. Yes, we're being nice when we do it but I have decided NEVER AGAIN! Life and other things get in the way and for me it just turned into more stress. The quilt with the bird....did you follow a pattern for that? I especially love that one and it would look good on my stand on the mantle. Baby quilts...I wish I had a pattern to pass on but I haven't made one in a long time. Time is usually against me so I buy baby gifts these days.

What fun! I used to do a lot of baby quilts and liked the 9 patch with alternate snowball block. All bright colors worked well.

Your mini quilts are beautiful!!! I love the flip flops. :)

My favorite is the mini with the pot of flowers and the bird. Nicely done.

Hi, you asked about fairly easy quilt patterns for baby quilts... how about the disappearing 9 patch. I have made two quilt tops. They really look old fashioned and pretty.
