Hand Stitched Baby Blanket

Last week, I made Baby #4 (still no name) a patchwork blanket that I hand stitched.  The fabric is from a La Petite École charm pack by French General (I picked out the boyish prints).  The dark red back is a Moda minkee from a local quilt shop.

I made a similar blanket for Kalei's birth, but this time, I decided to hand stitch the back and front together.  I used Anna Maria's helpful tutorial on how to hand stitch.
Quilt top before the minkee and handstitching
I didn't use a hoop or anything (c'mon) to hold the layers, just safety pinned the small blanket here and there before I started.

It was a lot more therapeutic than I thought it would be.  Want to make another one.


  1. Oh how beautiful and great for a boy. The fabrics are gorgeous, they don't look it when you see the top of a charm pack, but they are so nice...

  2. That is such a cool quilt. It's been awesome watching your love for sewing and creating beautiful things grow and grow these past years. You live to create, and that's inspiring! Congratulations on baby-to-be, too!
