August UFO Finished Batik Baby QuiltThis post may contain affiliate links which won’t change your price but will share a commission.
Early this month I shared a UFO that I had and hoped to get quilted this month. I’m tickled to say it is DONE!
The backing is a pretty pink fabric, it look brighter than in the picture. I originally had a peach fabric picked but found out that the baby will be a girl so……pink is perfect.
I used scraps of batiks from past Island Batik projects and a cotton print for the background. Many times I like to mix batiks and regular quilt fabrics.
I have a tutorial for this same block in a bigger size on my blog.
I linked up my August UFO with Red Letter Quilts which gave me that extra little push to get it finished.
Linking up with Red Letter Quilts – be sure and see who else finished their UFO projects!
It would be so much fun to take a trip on a big boat like this. There was a storm coming the day this riverboat went by.
Beautiful pops of colour on your quilt, Connie! The photos of the river boat are wonderful. The stormy sky sure looks very dramatic.
You had me at batiks! What a great baby quilt!
The bright batik pinwheels look perfect spinning on the light background. A beautiful finish Connie!
What a great pattern. I think I have a ruler that would make that block… Congrats on the finish.
I love this, so bright and cheerful; it is very pretty. Does the pattern have a name?
Beautiful baby quilt. I thought of you on Friday morning as we drove through your area and crossed the Mississippi River. I was trying to imagine what it must be like to live next to that river.
Congrats on this lovely finish and it was fun to see those huge riverboats! 🙂
There is one lucky baby girl who is going to have a beautiful quilt to treasure! I have several smaller cuts of batiks and this would be a great way to use them. I like how they really pop against the light background! Doesn’t it feel good to finish a lingering UFO?
What a fun finish Connie, simple yet packed with motion.
I have never seen a river boat like those, but I stayed at the Colorado Belle in Laughlin one time, lol! The Queen looks incredible, what a treat to watch these pass!
Such a simple idea and such a striking quilt. Beautiful!!!
What a cute UFO finish! My Mother-in-Law took several Mississippi river boat tours. I think her favorite was the Delta Queen. How neat that you get to see them passing by!
That quilt is really cute. You are such a master of stipple quilting. I can never really believe you do it on those tiny sewing machines. The riverboats are really impressive. I had a friend whose bucket list included taking a trip on one of those. I do think it looks like it could be fun.
Beautiful quilt finish! I completed my August OMG–table runners that had been incomplete for 2 years. This has gotten several UFOS off my list. The riverboat photos are wonderful, and I like the “antique ” effect.
Beautiful quilt. What is the name of the pattern & is it available to be purchased? Thank you.
Lovely quilt! Would love to take a cruise on one of those riverboats.
Congratulations on finishing this great baby quilt. Those Riverboats are fabulous looking. Many years ago Mr. C and I took one of these and traveled a good way on the Mississippi. I was true fun.
I love that quilt. So glad you finished it.
My in-laws did that river boat trip from New Orleans to Minnesota(?) one year and LOVED it. Maybe someday……. I’ll wave as we pass. 😉
What a cute quilt! Must be fun to watch those Riverboats cruise by – I’d love to take a ride myself
Well done on the beautiful finish – I’m sure it will be well loved and appreciated. Those river boats are very impressive!
