Baby Quilts and a Fun Photo Shoot

In May, I committed to a craft fair with my sisters so I made a few baby quilts. My girls had fun helping me take photos Sunday afternoon. (My son was too busy playing legos.)

The Middle did a great job holding these quilts for me. This one is a whole cloth baby quilt featuring Liz Frenette's Kona Modern Quilts.

Then the baby wanted in on the action.

"I can hold the quilt too, Mom."

"Oh, wait! There's a camera over there!"

This baby quilt is made of coordinating solid charms in the Pacific colorway from Liz Frenette's Kona Modern Quilts line.

I used the dot print on the back and one of the wonky stripe prints for the binding.

This patchwork quilt uses charms from Kate Spain's Central Park line. I straight-line quilted on either side of each seam.

I used this animal print for the back, as well as two other prints from the line for the binding. I added a touch of pink and blue for a little pop as well in the top right corner.

Here's the last quilt. I had a bunch of random solid charms so I just put them all together into this little boy baby quilt.

The backing is Dear Stella's Yard Sale in Cantaloupe. I made another scrappy binding out of blue, aqua, and lime, with a touch of orange for good measure.

Cute quilts! Baby quilts always seem so rewarding to me, because you get a relatively quick finish. ALways nice to have a finish and not another WIP/UFO ;)

I love Cynthia Frenette's Kona Modern line and the whole cloth quilt is gorgeous!
