Posy Baby!

I have finished my "Posy Baby" quilt!

(There's still some hand quilting to be added when I took this photo)

I did some simple "in the ditch" 

machine quilting first,

then finished by hand quilting 

with Aurifil wool thread!

How did I miss that stray thread?
The pattern came from Sherri @

 "A Quilting Life" blog,

as part 

of her Simply Small Projects!


The finished size is about 31" X 36"

It's great to have my first finish for 2014!

Happy days!

  1. Congratulations on finishing such a fabulous quilt!! Is the aurifil wool thread a similar thickness to perle 8? Posy Baby is a great name!

  6. This is such a sweet baby quilt. I love the soft colors! I have done a couple of projects with wool thread and I love it! One small project, I actually threaded my machine with wool thread and used a metallic needle...longer stitches and stitched slow. It turned out great! Great quilt, Susan!

  23. What an adorable quilt, Susan! Your fabric/color choices are out-of-the-norm for a baby quilt, so that makes it really refreshing. Love it! I like how you've machine and hand quilted... showing off several of your talents at once! Hope you're finding the sewing time that you want, now that you're back to school.
