No-Sew Baby Quilt

People often ask if they could hire me to make a quilt for them, from start to finish. But in truth, I'm just a sub-contractor. People hire me to do part of the quilting process. My clients sew together scraps of fabric to construct the quilt top, and then they hire me to quilt it together with the batting and backing. For more info on this, see my post, "What Exactly Do you DO?".

But this quilt was made without any piecing. I encourage anyone to consider this idea for a small quilt, for example a baby shower gift. Go to the fabric store, and pick out a fabric you like. Buy 2.5 yds of it, and I'll take care of everything else!

If you want to incorporate 2 different fabrics, buy 50" of the fabric you like more and 40" of the secondary fabric.

I will quilt it for you, using batting from my own stash, and and I will bind it, too. It will be ready to use when you get it back from me. If you're curious about this process or costs, please email me!

My neighbor, Kassie, found this cute fabric at Ikea! In keeping with the theme of the little woodland creatures on the fabric, I quilted a woodgrain motif. I think it's pretty adorable!

All quilting is free-motion, hand-guided on an APQS longarm quilting machine.
