Hi everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your day.

I finished my first Bubble quilt last night.  I loved putting this all together.  I have lots of oops' and uh ohs but I have to say it was fun and I couldn't have done without all your tips and help.

When I got up this morning and I had two people wanting to order one from me.  How funny is that?

I wouldn't have any idea what to charge anyone.  I made this one for my newest grand-daughter Genevieve who is now 3 months old.  

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Sylvia

This one is only 45" x 52".  I guess that's crib size? 

Thanks everyone for all your comments.

I really had fun with this one.  Thinking about make up a couple more but I still have two other quilts stuck in my head.  

Off to quilt now!

Your bubble quilt is gorgeous.   That isn't an easy pattern and you have done an amazing job.

Sylvia,

I have a silly question for you. Did you use batting in the quilt and if so what kind. I have a couple of baby quilts to make and have some cute fabric this quilt  pattern would be great for. Thanks for your help.

Quilty Hugs,

Ann

Thanks Nana!

 

Ann,

There are no silly questions.  Believe me, I've asked these ladies alot of them.

This quilt is made entirely out of flannel.  There is no batting used and it pretty much self quilts itself.

 I guess you could use batting but I think you would have to use a VERY light batting because after you stitch down all the corners it gets a little heavy.

I got this idea out of Quilt magazine- Aug/Sept 2011 edition page 28.  I saw it and just thought it was the cutest thing.

It is so much fun.

Ladies, do you have any suggestions for Ann?  Could you make this quilt out of  cotton?  If so, please tell us how you did it.

You all know I'm a newbie to quilting.  ;~)

Thanks,

Sylvia

The best part about this quilt is that it is so easy.

Pretty bubble quilt, Sylvia! The colors are great together.  I'm not brave enough to try curved piecing yet - looks like you did a wonderful job on those curves :-)
