Seaside Bed Quilt

IMG_4214

The boys were gone for the weekend so Sophie and I got some sewing done.  I loathe making large quilts…but I forged through and got it done while I had the time.

(she’s checking my seams)

It’s a Queen size at 88" x 96", and since I don’t really use quilts on our bed it’s the perfect size to fold and lay across our King bed for looks.

I’m glad to see this one done and ready to send to the quilter….now I remember why I don’t make many big bed quilts!

There’s a tutorial coming this week for it…if Sophie lets me put her down and use my other arm anytime soon.   :)

You can do no wrong when it comes to quilt designs.....and cute kids :)

Your little Sophie is adorable and I do love your quilt!

Flo @ Butterfly Quilting said...

Beautiful quilt...love the soft colours. And beautiful baby Sophie too! Those little chairs are so handy!

Sasha said...

Oh my gosh!!! Sophie is so cute!!!! I love your quilt too! It's so pretty! I just ordered a bundle of that fabric for myself =D

This brought back many memories of my kids sitting in those at that age. Do they call them Bumbos in the states or is that just the UK.

Chelsea said...

Cute quilt! I can't wait for that line to come out - that little white sprig print is really calling to me!

And I'm kind of the opposite when it comes to quilts. I've made a few smaller ones but mostly make either king or queen size. They tend to get awfully boring part way through, but I just know I'll use them more.

Beautiful baby, beautiful quilt! Love it, looking forward to the tutorial!

Andrea said...

haha, looks like my sewing room: Bumbo, swing, hold while sewing, and repeat. I do manage to get something done in the sewing room, at least =)

Melanie@Crafty Cupboard said...

Cute! I have never made a large quilt... ever! Mostly because I'm cheao and they require more fabric, hee hee!

Auntie Pami said...

Love that chair! And the quilt too

Heidi Staples said...

What a lovely quilt...so soft and summery. And isn't Sophie the cutest in her Bumbo chair -- I remember those!

Unknown said...

Lovely, not quite sure why it has that name. When you do a tutorial on it, please explain name too.

Melissa said...

The color scheme on this one is lovely. It reminds of some pattern paper I used to have.

I know how you feel about large quilts, I'm perfectly happy sewing lap quilts, wall hangings, single bed quilts but as soon as I try a large quilt I procrastinate, anything but sew the quilt.

Can't wait to see this quilt in "real life" - it's adorable. But not as adorable as little Miss Sophie - what a BIG helper!

Habibti at Home said...

Aww! Baby in the bumbo seat while you quilt!!!??? Priceless! I hope to be able to take a similar picture in a month or two. Love the quilt!

Carla said...

She is so adorable. Beauty of a quilt too

Paige said...

It looks like you have a great little helper there! The top is lovely, I can't wait to see it quilted! www.paperstarfish.prettyposies.com

Oh, I love the quilt and your choice of fabrics. I made your sprocket pillows for my daughter's birthday from the tutorial posted at the 36th Avenue and they were a real hit! Your instructions were easy to follow and no measuring! Thanks for sharing.

Do you have the pattern for sale?

Salley said...

Wow. The quilting is growing . . . and the baby is growing! Great photo.

Dawn said...

Oh my goodness....I think I would rather hold Sophie than anything else if I were you. :)

Heleen Groot said...

I would not be able to work on anything with such a babe of a child on the desk! You just keep holding her! The quilt is gorgeous too, by the way!

Patti said...

Sophie is just too cute. And she's sitting in the bumble seat - I know this because my granddaughter has one. Oh almost forgot your quilt top is cute too.

robin said...

Which is cuter? Your Little Miss or your newly finished quilt? NO QUESTION, mom! But I do like the quilt, too. ;-)

Cindy said...

Sophie is just too cute!!:) They didn't have those seats when my daughter was little- what a godsend it must be- so cute! Love the quilt and can't wait for the tutorial!

DivaMomCarol said...

Sophie's toes look munchable...awwwww..she is adorable, Allison.

I am sitting next to my stash until you tell me the yardage on the tutorial....can't wait to start "pulling" those fabrics!

YAY!

Autumn said...

Love it! I just ordered some of this to make a baby quilt for our new little one in October and some pillowcases for our bed to match!

Katie Fleming said...

Love your little seam analyzer, Sophie! She is so cute watching you sew. The quilt looks great and I definitely feel your pain on large quilts.

Love it. I've yet to brave anything beyond a small wall quilt.

Sandra (Cherry Heart) said...

Beautiful! Love the fabrics and the mixture of blocks too - very summery and beachy - gorgeous!

What a doll she is! And such a wonderful quilt. I love this line. With the tutorial I'll know what to buy to make this quilt. It's so cheery to me. Thank you, thank you.

Andrea Turner said...

This quilt is super pretty. I look forward to the tutorial!

Very nice! I hope your little princess wasn't too hard on you about your seams ;) Smiles~Beth

Brenda said...

Love the look! Cannot wait to check out the tutorial.

The Sewing Chick said...

Just be glad you don't have to quilt it yourself, too ;) Its really pretty - I love the fabrics!!

Sherri said...

What a cutie...and love the quilt!

sweet emmelie said...

love the fabrics, good work!

bothaedna said...

Please thank the boys for leaving the women at home to get on with their business, otherwise I would not have been able to see your excellent quilt. Thank you for sharing

Josh and Haley said...

Hello! I am a fairly new reader and really hoping to teach myself to quilt! :) Not sure if that is doable but I thought about trying this tutorial. Do you think this would be a good one to learn on? Also, once the top is done would I have to send it to a quilter or can I just put on the batting and the back side of the quilt? Thanks!!

I wish I had a little chair for my children when they were little. I would sew with babies on my lap at times because I wanted to sew so bad.

I love the bigger quilts, but they really are a lot more work and awkward to move around on the sewing machine.
