Something New




I am trying something new 
on the yellow and gray baby quilt 
that is in the works.

I have put tags on baby quilts before
sewn into the binding.

Here ...



and here ... 



But I have never before sewn them into the blocks.

I saw the tags included in the center of the quilt here first ... 



It looked like a fun addition to a baby quilt.

Sew I decide to try this idea.


I am sewing a different pattern but it includes four-patch units.

I chose to sew in the tags on twelve four patch blocks.


Because I want to make sure these do not rip out when the little fingers
start pulling at them,
I double stitched these block seams.

This quilt will be posted soon.

I am really enjoying these sunny colors.

  2. WOW! That is superb. Great idea to double stitch them. I know that little ones can really yank on things. I had long hair when each of my children were born and it went into a pony tail at the nape of the neck most of the time. Hair was easily clutched by little hands and with the sweatty little hands it was a mess to get my hair out of their grasps. The bright cheery gold and black is adorable and I love the gray pups with them, too. Some parents are going to be thrilled.

  6. Hi Pat! Thanks so much for the shoutout and I'm thrilled you ran with the idea. I looks forward to seeing the full reveal but I LOVE what I'm seeing so far. My five-week-old great-niece has no interest in those tags yet on the quilt I made, but her 17-month-old brother loves them! Either way, I know the quilt will be used. ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. I really like the fabrics you are using for this quilt. I am a musician so I especially like the music fabric for the tags. Looking forward to the reveal.
