 Baby Bunting Quilt Blocks

These Baby Bunting Quilt blocks are so fun to make and very cute. I love small quilts and after making so many large quilts I needed some small quilt therapy, starting with the Baby Bunting Blocks. I am a sucker for basket blocks, and these little babies are delightful.

I found a little steam from my iron helps as well. Baby Bunting Quilt Blocks / Pine Valley Quilts I don't always use pins but they came in handy with these blocks.

Hi Esther

These are repros from my stash I have collected over the years. It’s so great to use them up and see them made into quilts.

It's been such a long time since I posted, I am going to start today off with a post about the Zig-Zag border I am making for my Roses quilt.

There are many ways to make a Zig-Zag border, I have chosen to use half square triangles. 

Here's how it works.

I cut 2 1/2 inch strips from a dark print and a light print then matched the light and dark print fabrics with right sides facing. I used a half square triangle ruler to cut out the pieces. Taking them to the sewing machine and sewing them together with a 1/4 inch seam. I like this method, it's fast and requires very little trimming.

Today I hope to have the third border stitched in place and start prepping the fourth border of Roses. This will complete the center of the quilt. From there I have a vague idea of what will come next, I am hoping it will come clearer to me as I progress.

This morning I am sewing the border fabrics together for the top and bottom borders of the Roses quilt. I have selected and range of tone on tone prints some light and some with a little bit of colour to give a bit of interest. I love to mix up the fabrics, using a large selection. Something I find helpful when piecing the strips is to pin at least the end of the seam so the fabrics don't shift while you are sewing and end up with one end longer than the other.
