Kelby's Quilt

This is the baby quilt my mom made for our coming little guy (yes, I'm still pregnant!) You may remember me posting a picture of the fabrics awhile ago. We found this pattern for free on The Purl Bee and used the same Alexander Henry Zoo print and chose blue and green instead of orange. I LOVE IT! It's such a unique baby quilt and I am just thrilled, she did a wonderful job.

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I did LOTS of shopping and walking today, so you would think that would kick start things, but ya know. We'll see what the doctor says tomorrow, hopefully things are at least happening!

I had to take my sewing machine to the repairman today :( It got a nasty jam while I was quilting a couple days ago and now the tension and/or timing is just night right. As much as it bums me out, I think I'll be so glad that I got it serviced, since it will probably feel like a brand new machine when I get it back! In the mean time, I'm sewing on an old Brother from the 60's that's been in my family since then and only goes backwards and forwards. It's an amazing, heavy, solid chunk of metal that we've never had any problems with, so it's actually fun to pull it out every once in awhile :)


  1. What a lucky baby to have such a darling quilt from her grandma! Best wishes at the doctor tomorrow!

  2. this is gorgeous! I have been wanting to make a ziq quilt like this for the past few months. I need to get on that!

  3. Thank you, dear; HOWEVER--the Brother is from the 70's not the 60's! I don't need anyone adding a decade on me :D


  4. I love your baby quilt! I printed off the instruxtions and plan to make a larger one from a some charm swap I've been in. I hope you have had your baby and that you both are doing wonderful :o) Amie, Tn.

  6. Oh how I love the fabrics you used in this sweet quilt. Well done.
