Baby Name Quilt

Baby Name Quilt - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

This fun quilt is going to be used for our monthly photo shoots
documenting Little Brady’s growing body.

I wish I had it finished before he was born,
but starting at 2 1/2 months isn’t the end of the world. ;)

If you have a baby coming on the way, or know someone who does, this would be so fun to make!

I will do a tutorial series on how to make this quilt top and back, how to baste it, and how to quilt it.

With this quilt, I quilted it by sewing stars and the border.
I LOVE it!

On Friday, I will start with supplies needed for this particular quilt and all the instructions on making the top and back.

Then on separate posts, I’ll go over basting and quilting.
Did I mention I love these stars? :)

    What a great idea! I wish I’d taken pics every month with all of my babies. Brady is adorable and so is his new quilt!

    Any suggestions for a walking presser foot for a New Home L372?

      Hi Rachel. Thank you so much for your question. That is a great question, and I personally do not have a suggestion for you. However, I have turned to my machine’s owners manual so many times for questions just like yours. Good luck and hope you have a wonderful day! Michelle :)
