I have just completed a commission for a neighbour : a set of Baby Memory Quilts using babygros and onesies.
These quilts were great fun to make but proved a bit challenging too. The jersey material was very stretchy and the velvety fabric was very slippery – it would not stay in place, slipping half an inch in the wrong direction every time ! I ended up having to pin every seam at one-inch intervals to keep things in place.
The other challenge was to applique the name of each child on each quilt. I had never done any applique before. I was initially going to draw the letters of each names myself but I found this Etsy shop selling inexpensive craft fonts. All you need to do is specify the size of letters you want to use and the seller sends you a PDF that you can print and then use to trace out your letters for applique. It worked really well for me.
Aren’t these details so cute ?
