Sophia's Quilt

Two years ago I began a quilt for my soon to be born granddaughter.  Sarah had picked out the color scheme and we went shopping.

When we went to Caroga Lake this year Sophia was sleeping in a "big girl" bed so Sarah brought her quilt.  I took a few pictures of the quilt and Sophia.

Toasty Toes is the pattern I used, the quilting done by my friend Sue who has a long-arm quilting business.

Some Amy Butler fabrics, some Michael Miller  
Every now and then Sophia will come to me and say, "Thank you for making my quilt, Grandma" 

Always make a label

I have started Baby Boy's quilt.  These are the fabrics.

The Pattern is Colorblock from Bijou Lovely.  The pattern is $8.  You can purchase it here.

Baby boy is due in 8 weeks, so I need to get sewing!!!  I will keep you up to date on progress.  

Have a great weekend.

Sew Many Ways


  1. I love the quilt with all the beautiful colors. I would love for you to join me at

  2. That quilt is perfect! The colors go well together. I always wanted to do a quilt with bright colors and some black thrown in for contrast. The pattern is precious. I would love to make one like this, too, someday. You can check out some of my quilts at Where sewing is an obsession.

  3. I think the best gift you can give a child is a homemade blanket. They may not understand the significance of the blanket for a while but when they do they will know that someone loved them enough to make them a quilt. It’s beautiful.
