Patriotic Baby Quilt finish!

I made this quilt on commission. She wanted a patriotic baby quilt for a military friend's new baby. This quilt is about as patriotic as it can get! It took me about 5 days total, but that was a lot of fast and furious stitching. It turned out nice. It is 52x40 inches so will still be a nice size for a child. My kids always used their baby quilts for curling up on the sofa to watch TV long after they were babies.
They still haven't called me for an interview for the hospital position in the Recovery Room. I'm kinda glad about that! I did start working on a committee project for my quilt guild, Piecing Partners. We are putting together a quilt show for 2011 here in Colorado Springs. I think this job will be exciting.


  1. Hi Yvonne,

    This quilt is so pretty. The family who receives it will love it. I'm just now getting into patriotic quilts. I live near the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln. We have a museum here that sells local crafts and I am working on some small projects to maybe sell there. Of course a lot of it will have to be log cabin blocks.

    Have a great day!


  2. Hi Gale, Thanks for the compliment on my quilt. And thanks for being my very first follower! Yvonne

  3. Your welcome. I love the chicken potholders and the rabbit is adorable. I don't do a lot of Easter decorating but certainly enjoy the candy, hiding eggs and usually making dresses for my little granddaughters.

    The potholders should sell well. They are cute!


Thank you for your comments. I really enjoy reading them.
