Blogger's Quilt Festival Babylove Quilt

I am so happy to be joining in on the fun for the Blogger's Quilt Festival this time!

This simple scrappy baby quilt for a friend is named Babylove.  It is simple snowballs and was super easy to put together with the help of an Accuquilt and my son Adam.  It is such a variety of different fabrics from Thomas Knauer, Dear Stella, Kokka, Heather Ross, Denyse Schmidt and many others.  The batting I used was Pellon and the thread was Aurifil 50wt for the piecing and 40wt for the quilting.  The quilting was simple circles around where the corners met. I thought it added something fun by showing off the diamonds created by the block points.

I was super happy about the hand binding on this quilt.  I do not usually hand bind so I am not the best at doing it.  This one looks perfect to me ( happy dance).

I am going to enter this one in the Scrappy Quilts Category.

Please go and cheek out all the fantastic inspiration at Amy's Creative Side!!!

I love the shape connection between your polka-dot binding and your snowball blocks. Looks like you did a good job with the binding. I find that sewing that binding down by hand is such a relaxing final step and time to reflect on making the quilt or who its for or just to veg out for awhile.

Very cute! I love how the circle quilting actually makes the snowballs look more square!

I'd be super happy if I could achieve binding that looked like that too Kim, it sure looks perfect to me, Good Luck in your scrappy quilt category, I hope the judges agree with us.

Snowballs are great for scrappy quilts! Big enough to showcase the fabrics and small enough to hold a good scrappy look :) good job!
