 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.

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.

Trying many different fabrics, I now have more birds than I need and some to set aside for another quilt. This is usually the case in many of my applique quilts, so I have a little pile of orphan pieces waiting for the perfect quilt to be stitched into.
