Beatrix Potter Beatrix Potter
By: Kathi I, Pennsylvania, USA

I designed this baby quilt so that the fabric in the large blocks is also on the back of the quilt. I make the baby quilts to practice using my Bernina stitch regulator and free motion quilting. Inside is Dream Angel batting which is naturally fireproof and nice to machine quilt through.

Calais' Mother Goose Calais’ Mother Goose
By: Barbara Eding, California, USA

I was going to make a baby quilt for my husband’s boss but I got injured and couldn’t sew for a while. So my husband participated in designing and much of the piecing the quilt. I did all the quilting. So it was really a joint project!

Funky Monkey Baby Quilt Funky Monkey Baby Quilt
By: Christine Capps, Texas, USA

I fell in love with this Moda Fabric the first time I saw it. I remember as a kid singing the Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the bed song. I decided to pass on this tradition by making a quilt for the newest baby in our extended family.

Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes
By: Mandy Foot, Australia

I made this quilt for Kids with Cancer (CIKA) for the Royal Childrens Hospital in Melbourne. It took me about 3 months to make this quilt. It raised
$5020 for the charity which I was absolutely thrilled about. I love making applique quilts as they are so colourful and interesting.

Nursey Rhymes Nursey Rhymes
By: Gail Fearon, New Brunswick, Canada

Hand embroidered in taupe on cream and hand quilted. I collected the patterns from our local newspaper over a period of months. I’ve always liked the look of embroidery on quilts and this pattern certainly fit the bill.

My very first quilt top i ever made, all pieced using the traditional english paper piecing method (didn’t know any better at the time). It was the begining of my love affair with patchwork and quilting.

This is a quilt for our king-size bed (hence the layers and layers of borders). It’s from a pattern by Susan Maw and Sally Bell from Kila MT.

Three Little Pigs Three Little Pigs

I have a friend who used to own a quilt shop and had an affinity for pigs but couldn’t find a pig pattern so I designed this one for her shop.

What Did I Dream? What Did I Dream?
By: Darlene (Fabricpainter!), Alberta, Canada

“What did I dream?
I do not know,
The fragments fly like chaff.
Yet strange my mind
Was tickled so,
I cannot help but laugh.”

I love this nursery rhyme. My small art quilt depicts a fairy waking up after a night’s sleep underneath a cover of trees. She’s on Extravorganza, painted & beaded.

    thanks for the giveaways!

  5. Jen says:

    Fabulous quilts, as usual!

    I was going to say I don’t have a quilt story to submit, but now I think about it, I do! We husband and I got married in front of a quilt I made in the summertime! I bet I could poke around for an awesome recipe too. Now I’m all excited! I would buy this book for $10. Thanks for the giveaway. And the contest voting!

  6. Jenn Vallimont says:

    I would have to think about a quilting story… I’m sure I have one or two. And I would have to dig for a summery recipe. I don’t normally make recipes based on the season… perhaps I should. :) and yeah I would buy it for $10, that seems like a good price.

  9. Heather Porritt says:

    I have a quilt story for you but I am not sure if it would be what your looking for?? A summertime recipe well that may be easier…. I would easily buy a book for only 10$$ escially if it has my too favorite subjects quilting and food!!!!

  10. karin says:

    I have a quilt story that’s kinda funny (to us, anyway), and I have a few good recipes, but, since we live in an RV, and space is tight, I’d have to refrain from buying a food book – would rather have more fabric or another how-to technique. I rely on the internet for most recipes nowadays, sorry!

  11. Marcia W. says:

    My mother is the awesome cook in our family so would like to win for her. Alas, my entry would have to be on washing dishes or one of her recipes and quilt stories (if she agreed). Thanks for the chance.

  12. Deanna says:

    OK–so I left my first comment in the wrong place. Sorry! But I WOULD submit a recipe. Thanks for sponsoring these weekly contests.

  13. Sandy says:

    Lovely quilts and hard to decide but I had to go with Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes…lots of applique!! Love the colors that she choose.

  14. Deb Polich says:

    The answer to both questions is YES. I also loved the ideas in these quilts. They would all be very sweet for some child.

  15. Leslie T says:

    Wow, amazing quilts! What talent, hard to choose!!
