Quilt for Baby Gage

by Katie on May 31, 2014

Kristi and Nate (members of my “California family” ;) ) are having a baby boy in June and a few of Kristi’s local friends and I had a shower for her in May! I had been following Kristi’s nursery Pinterest board to see what she might be planning for Baby Gage’s room. I had seen quilts like this floating around the quiltosphere and thought it would fit the bill!

I picked my five colors, cut a bunch of squares, stitched and cut them into HSTs, and laid ‘em out. I had the hubby critique, made a few adjustments, then sewed it all together. The back is pieced, but the few photos I took of it were so washed out, you couldn’t see the cuteness!

I also tried using my walking foot with some straight line quilting – this was my first non-tester project! It’s not perfect, but it works. Man, does quilting take a long time or what?! I can’t imagine FMQ a full-sized quilt, especially on my machine! I think I’ll be sticking with my walking foot and hand work (my favorite!) for a while! ;)

Wow! This is so beautiful, Katie! And so precise! Great job! How did you decide which ones to have the narrower stitching? It looks so interesting! Really draws the eye throughout the piece!

Thanks, Carol! No method behind the stitching – just what I thought “looked right”. :)
