I’ve made a resolution this year to hand make at least one shop sample a month. This can work out one of two ways…I’ll either be super prepared for quilt shows or I’ll be all sold out…either way it’s a win, right?!

January’s hand made cuteness is a baby quilt made from the Riley Blake line called “In The Ocean“. Schools of fishes,  seahorses , smiling jellyfish, and mulit-colored bubbles will make baby’s room bright and playful.

I used the panel fabric for the center. It features all the main characters for the quilt and framed it with a border and a flange in a Kona red called Lipstick.

Multi bubbles are on the backing, and it’s bound in the red. I quilted it with a wavy stitch…wavy, like the ocean

If this quilt kit actually makes it to the shows, It will be sold with the sand pail, but as for now, that’s just a shop display..it would be kinda hard to get that pail to the customers with cost effective shipping! Kit price is $40. That includes everything to make it, including top fabrics, binding, backing, pattern and is available in the SewModDesigns shop. If you’re looking for something simple, this one’s for you. I used one day to make it and one day to quilt it!

This kit makes a perfect snuggle blankie for baby. Use it to throw on the floor for playtime or decor for the nursery. It’s small enough to take with you for a stroller blanket or use with the carrier. Have a baby shower to attend? Bring handmade!

Or if you’re interested in purchasing the handmade quilt, it can be found in the SewModMakes shop!
