Baby Quilts

Being a mother of a one year old, I have received quite a few baby gifts. I can pile them up into a petite little mountain! Some of the gifts I will cherish and keep forever, like the few handmade one's from my mother and my mother-in-law.  I love handmade goodies. Also I absolutely cherish putting in some thought and effort into any gifts that we have to get. There are two lovely little girls who have been on my mind lately. These quilts are for them of course!

Little doll Diya has already got her's and I hope she is enjoying her new quilt! 

These were my very first quilts and believe me it took effort! A lot of hard work and patience. I used double layered flannel as the batting and muslin for the upper and bottom layers.
If ever there is anything more evil in this world than bias binding; I would be greatly surprised. Jokes apart, I got a little smarter on the second one and used a flange instead of binding. The one with the flange has the little pink highlight, looks neat right! Flange was super easy as compared to the traditional bias binding. Oh yes, I was stupid enough to make the entire binding from scratch.

Used a couple of resources -
Also another big big surprise was the amount of Math one needs to do for sewing! Phew! Was totally sucked into square roots and the lot!

Loved sewing these. I put in so much back breaking work - mitered the corners, even hand embroidered the labels!

The second one is for my yet to be born niece - 'Pour Mon Cherie. Stay cozy. Love Rhythm.'
