Baby quilt tracks - where I went online this week, Sept 12 version

Buy at Art.comBeen meandering various paths online in the past few weeks and have found some great stuff to share. If you like, I might try to do this every week just to share more of the great baby quilts, baby quilt patterns and ideas I find out there.

The Long Thread - This is a charming idea - making quilts from baby dresses. She has several of her own and others that have stains on them and thus aren't of much use to anyone. Check out the first block she's done. She even managed to get some of the smocking in there! (Warning that anytime you do a project like this, you don't have the luxury of having all cotton fabrics or fabrics with great weight. So you might keep these for a quilt that will get light use.)

Make Baby - Get yourself in on their handmade baby quilt contest. Entries have to be in by Nov. 1 and you can enter up to two projects. Win a $100, $50 or $25 gift certificate from Superbuzzy.com!

Ballarat Patchwork - A Kaffe Fassett fabric bonanza in purple and red. This didn't start out to be a baby quilt, so don't expect something typical here. But then, it's Kaffe Fassett, so you know it's not going to be ducks and bunnies.

Quilt Heart - This is such a nice simple pattern that allows the fabrics to shine. I love the black and white border fabric best.

Jeremy and Annie - This was a first project made of simple squares, but cute execution of a quilt designed to match the nursery. Tied and machine quilted for extra security! She mentions making potholders before; apparently that practice was great for the binding work. Hmm. Guess I'll have to make some potholders!

Ramblings of a Writer - She had me right from when she said the fabric was dogs. It's a cute, simple quilt, but even better, burp cloths made to match!
