Shoreline Baby Quilt

This quilt was bought specifically to make this quilt. The direction was to make a quilt that reflects the shallow water, sand beach and rocky shore. I think the fabrics capture the feel wonderfully. The quilt does not scream baby but I think the mom will love it.
I had a few problems while I was putting this on point. Never thought I was doing one side different than the other. Oh well, seam ripper and I got a work out. Next time I will sew all the rows together. Then add the setting triangles and only then sew it together.
I love this backing fabric. It doesn't show up in the pictures all that well but it is seagulls in blue and beige. Horrid colour in the picture but you can almost see the birds.

  1. Hi Pam, your result is a very pretty baby quilt with such restful colours...hopefully baby will sleep well under it.

  2. Beautiful! The baby will have sweet dreams sleeping under it.


  3. This is a beautiful quilt. I love the colors, they do remind me of the sand and water. Just need a great little beach chair and a good book.

  4. This is a really beautiful quilt Pam. I'm sure it will be loved.

  5. I love this quilt! I love the colors and the subtle combination of blues and greys (or tan or sand color -- not sure which from the photo). I should think new mom will adore this quilt! I know I would if it were given to me as a new mom.

  6. Hi Pam,
    I love this quilt! Lots of baby quilts are not just pink or blue - and who the heck wouldn't love this??!! I think it totally tells the shallow water/beach story. Great job. ~smile~

  7. This is a very restful baby quilt. Wonderful seagulls on the back!
