Accidental Baby Quilt

Have you seen the cute fabric line Gretel designed by my sweet friend Amy Smart for Riley Blake designs? I had a chance to work with them and I made a quilt top a few weeks ago. What? the quilt up above? NO. That isn't it. The picture below is the quilt top I made first. For some reasons, my dog always shows up from nowhere when I start taking pictures of my quilt and gets in the pictures. Sorry if you are not a doggy lover. ;) It is not quilted yet, but I love how it turned out. I made it up as I went along, which is great, but because it wasn't planned nor did I follow a pattern, I had some left over blocks. I hate to waste so many blocks, so I started playing with them and kept switching things up to see the design potential... and pieced them together...

and ta-da! This baby quilt was born.

I was so happy how it turned out and got carried away. I hand quilted it, decided to do scalloped edges, and embroidered some red motif on it.

Sometimes you can come up with something fun and unexpected when you go with the flow and just let it happen. My baby sister is pregnant with her first baby and I am crossing my fingers that the baby is a girl, so this aunt can ship this quilt to Japan!


  1. Wow this is so beautiful! I love that you made a scalloped edge, but I am working on a scalloped edge on my current quilt and I haven't seen anybody else do that recently.

  2. Adorable!!!! Is there a pattern? Thanks

  3. Adorably stunning!😍😍. Your little dog is a cutie tooπŸ˜‰

  4. THAT is just very, very sweet. xo Diana

  5. beautiful quilting!
    the baby quilt is adorable but why does it have to be a girl? the quilt colours are neutral so can be for either boy or girl.
    thanx for sharing
