15 Gingham Baby Quilts!!!

 A quilter can have a lot of fun making gingham baby quilts from one's "collection"!!! Here are 15 I made during May and June, 2021! ⤵️ They'll be going to Jack's Basket this week, where babies with Down syndrome are celebrated!!!
Quilt Info:
Pattern: How to Make a Gingham Baby Quilt from Simple Simon & Co.
Size: 40" X 40"
Interesting Info: I was making so many of these fun baby quilts that I couldn't keep up with the details on my blog! So I've gathered 4 pics and brief info on all 15 of them here. This is one giant squirrel project!!!

Gingham baby quilt #1 has a large Japanese print for the back, a Tula Pink stripe for the binding and is quilted in Mike's Swoosh pantograph! ⤵️
Quilt #2 uses a bamboo print and two solids, of which the lighter solid is actually a very light green color--you've got to look closely to notice it! The pantograph is Baptist Fan Twist and the backing is Japanese bunnies. ⤵️
Quilt #3 uses both a black and a white fabric that I bought a lot of at 50% off last year during my "anniversary purchase" at the quilt shop where I work, so you will see both of these fabrics in most of these 15 quilts--I just needed to add a medium tone to create the gingham look. Scottish Plaid Hexies is the pantograph! ⤵️
Quilt #4 uses a Hawaiian print and the Monstera pantograph! ⤵️
Quilt #5 uses a Japanese backing fabric, Tula Pink striped binding and the Modern Meandering Flow panto! ⤵️
Quilt #6 is made from a Tula Pink solid (bright green), a Japanese print backing and Ground Cover panto! ⤵️
Quilt #7 is made with a 'cardinal in birch trees' print and the Hitchhiking 2 panto! ⤵️
Quilt #8 is made with a Marcia Derse print and the Diagonal Plaid pantograph! ⤵️
Quilt #9 is made from a Kaffe Fassett print and the Talia 2 pantograph. The backing is a log cabin print! ⤵️
Quilt #10 is made from a Tula Pink solid (bright yellow), the backing is a black fireworks print with gold metallic and the panto is Honeycomb Bee! ⤵️
Quilt #11 features a print of Japanese toys. The backing is Japanese, also. The panto is Candyland! ⤵️
Quilt #12 has a Japanese dragonfly print. The pantograph is Blowing Pampas Grass! ⤵️
Quilt #13 has a Tula Pink solid (lime green) and a Grunge cream and Grunge backing. The Panto is called Thumbprints. I used variegated thread on this one! ⤵️
Quilt #14 has a print for the medium toned fabric, uses a Tula Pink stripe for the binding and is quilted in the Fort panto! ⤵️
And quilt #15 uses a print blender for the medium tone, Japanese backing and binding and the Candyland pantograph! ⤵️
All in a row!!! ⤵️
Glimpses of the different backings! ⤵️
All packed up in my Grab N Go Tote from GE Designs, ready for the drive to Jack's Basket!!!
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  12. Oh my gosh, girl -- you have been quilting up a storm over there!! I can't get over how much I love this Gingham pattern. Quick to piece, works with just about any fabric, and fabulous for showcasing all of your different quilting designs. Does the pattern give cutting instructions for yardage, or just charm squares? Oh and by the way, you might want to delete the previous comment with links to call girls and escort services... Yikes!

  20. So so fun to see this many quilts from the same basic pattern. I love simple quilts and these are all fantastic and will be special to each recipient. Number 9 is my favorite. The Kaffe print really dances across the check pattern.

  21. Oh my word! What a beautiful collection of quilts. Do quilts have a collective noun? A beauty of quilts or a snuggle of quilts?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow, what a collection! I can't tell which one is my favorite, I had to look at them 3 times, again and again, but still can not decide, they are all just so gorgeous!
    Thank you for sharing your beauties, and linking up ❤️

  23. Wow, it's wonderful to see them all here! Like someone said, it's so cool to really look at each one and see that hey, wait, the black is in that one too, and she used green (or yellow or grey). Really fun to study them, and I love the pic of them in the tote ready to go.
