OMIGOSH! Crib Quilt

This is the last of the crib quilts I've been quilting. This little quilt used the leftover blocks from my OMIGOSH! quilt. I thought the aqua in the border fabric looked good with the blocks.


I marked lines and curvy quilted one way with those. I did think about quilting horizontal lines in the top and bottom borders but I decidedthere was enough quilting. Besides, I was tired of quilting all these little quilts and just wanted to be done! This quilt measures 35" by 46"

All 7 of these quilts used pieced batting but this last quilt was a real mishmash of pieces. The pile of batting pieces that had been stacked in the closet is gone, at least for now.

Most of the quilts have pieced backings but I didn't take pictures. It was freezing outside when I took these photos, 12*!

It feels good to have these quilts finished and ready to be passed along to a charity. Now I can start working on a quilt from my list!

Isn't wonderful to get some quilts done? This one is rather inspired with those cute little 9 patches. Someone is going to love getting this one.

What a fabulous crib quilt, Gretchen. Great design and use of color too. I bet it feels so good to not only get the quilts completed but to use up that stack of batting. Have a wonderful week, my dear and happy quilting.

You do so many charity and quilts for auction Gretchen. I like the OMIGOSH left overs! Very pretty colors.
I try to save the pieces of batting and use them on utility quilts. That pile can get just too big, so sometimes I cut the batting pieces in 4” squares and use the to clear my cutting mat when cutting out fabrics, or squaring blocks, etc. I keep a stack in small containers - it works and keeps those pesky little pieces easily picked up!

Dear Gretchen,
Omygosh baby quilt is so cute. Love the way you have used the extra blocks. One baby is going to sleep under this creation and stay snug as a bug under it. It is so rewarding when we give quilts, hugging one person at a time with a quilt and all the love we sewn into the quilt!
