Baby Marmalade Quilt Finished

Well I have finished the Baby Marmalade Quilt! I have already sent it off to the family earlier this month! So hopefully when the new little bundle of joy is born, she will have her beautiful quilt!
 You can see our early November snow storm....but doesn't it look wonderful??
 I am very pleased with how it turned out! And the best part is that I saved all of my fabric from it so I will be able to create something else with the white and marmalade. I'm so excited!
 Here is me quilting it. I took this for instagram! Which if anyone wants to add me, just let me know and I will let ya!
 I am pleased with my quilting on the back! NO PUCKERS!! It has taken three years but I can finally quilt a quilt that doesn't have any puckers! I ended up using a sheet from Wal-Mart! (On sale too!)
I really love this design and will probably use it again! If you want to see what I used, see this post.

I also found (I went through my whole blog) and found the pictures of the quilt that I made for her before!! It was clear back in 2010! (You can find the link on my finished quilts page). It was Liam's Baby quilt!

Lovely! I think everything about your quilt making has improved over the years.

i love your quilts is there any chance you can post the patterns with them. i would love to make some of them especially the baby marmalde and the 4 patch. i really just need the measurements for that one or what size blocks they are thank you.

Well the Marmalade quilt I purchased the pattern from The Joy Cottage. Although it is a basic herringbone, or is it a herringlome block? Not 100% sure. Each piece when cut is 6.5" x 3.5". Cut on the angle of course. Then I believe it was a 1.5" strip of fabric between the rows.

Then for the 4 block quilt. I used 5" blocks (charms) and then used 2.5" strip in between.

Hope this helps! :D

I would have emailed it to you Rachelle, but I couldn't find your email address.
