Baby Quilts

I love making baby quilts.  I love the celebration of a new life and the expectation that a little one will cuddle in my quilt for years to come.  My friends, Shane and Natalie, are expecting their first baby.  My quilt guild had a workshop in April to make a heart log cabin quilt.  When I saw it, I knew it was just the ticket for this new little one...

I picked colorful solids to contrast with a whimsical print.  It was so much fun to make. 

In addition to the quilt, I made some burp cloths.  These are one of my favorite baby shower gifts because they can be so individual to the baby.  You won't see these on a register at BabysRUs or Target. 

The middle one matches the print on the quilt.  "Powell Power" was coined by the first Powell child on our street, Stella.  It reigns.  The green one matches the baby's room.  Natalie is a UGA alumni, so the trio had to include the Dawgs.  When the baby arrives, we will add a customized one to the collection.

  1. I haven't seen the heart log cabin before, but agree it's perfect for a baby quilt. The colors you picked are great too! Fantastic job on the burp clothes as well. They look very professional.
