Baby Quilt:

Create a quilt sandwich with the Ready, Set, Splash Deep Sea Panel, batting, and Minky (in that order from top to bottom).

Baste the layers with spray and/or pins.

Quilt the layers together to your desire.

I free-motion quilted the above circles.

For the top half, I just sewed straight lines across the quilt top, not crossing over the frog’s face and body.

Once the quilting is done, square up all of the sides and add the binding.

Cut out your desired binding and stitch the pieces together, enough to go around the entire quilt.

This gift set is actually on its way to my cousin, who had her first baby this past weekend. She is a new mom, so I hope this set brings her some comfort.

The colors are perfect for a boy or a girl.

Gem Stone Lap Quilt

Hello and Happy July, everyone! 2020 has changed our lives in so many different ways. We can talk about all of the things we miss or haven’t been able to do, but I want to talk about what I’ve learned and loves about this stay at home time.

First, I saved so much money by not going anywhere or buy anything besides groceries. Second, I’ve been able to spend more time with my children. I realize how much I miss when we are off to school and work on a typical day. The third is more time to finish and start new crafts, LOL!!

Yes, I’ve been able to finish older projects and start new ones like my project that I want to share with you today.

Take a look  at my Gem Stone Lap Quilt:

The colors in this collection are so vibrant and fun.

Let’s take about this fabric collection:

Gem Stones Basics, by PSD2, is a stunning collection of fabrics featuring an ombre confetti design that runs selvage to selvage.

This collection contains 17 different prints.

Let’s dive into how to create this lap quilt:

Cutting fabric:

Cut 10 strips of different colors to 5 inches x the width of the fabric.

Sewing Strips:

Line the strips up in the order you want to see them as a quilt.

Place the first two right-sides together and sew a 1/4 inch down the length of the fabric.

Repeat this process until all of your strips are sewn together.

Once that is done, its time to cut the batting and backing.

Lay the quilt top on top of the batting and backing. Make sure the batting is bigger then the quilt top and the backing is more significant than the batting.

To make sure the quilt top doesn’t move, pin all three layers in place.

Now its time to quilt the quilt.

Once the quilting is finished, square up the quilt on all four sides.

The last thing to do now is to add the binding.

Cut 4 strips of 2.5 inch of the binding fabric.

Sew the strips together, then sew the binding to the quilt.

Sew the binding around the entire quilt.

Look at how pretty the Gem Stone Lap Quilt is!
