Patchwork and Chenille Baby Blanket

I just found out that a baby girl was born to a college friend of mine last month.  I actually used what I had for this one. I love this patchwork fabric and haven’t seen it at my fabric store for months.  I wish I knew what it was called so I could look for it online.  Anybody know?

Baby blanket - sage and patchwork

Sage green chenille on the back – makes for a thick, luxurious-looking baby blanket.  I prefer the wavy chenille, but the chenille is always gone at my JoAnn’s – I’m glad if I can find a color other than cream so I get some when I can.  If you’re reading, my new Canadian mom, this will be sent out to you soon!

    fantastic. I like the chenille on the back – great idea. I can’t really see the patchwork in the picture but you might check equilter.com. try a search for patchwork and maybe something will come up.

    Your quilt is beautiful! I love the idea of using chenille on the back. Is this your fabric?

    that is fabulous! I totally love it. I tried once before but the knitted side got all stretched and wouldn’t be sewn properly to the quilt side. A nightmare…

    Another beautiful project. You are so talented. And, how do you have the time to make all these wonderful gifts.

    I love all these fabrics. It’s so funny that I just used Chenille on your sister’s blanket. I love the look and feel but I find it really hard to sew with. What are your secrets?

    I love the chenille for the baby stuff too – it just feels right. It looks beautiful. Good luck finding more.

    Love the idea of chenille on the back, we have been working with lots of chenille down here (Australia), the fabrics are from a range from Three Sisters, just a little hard to pick which one.

    That’s beautiful — good idea to have the chenille, soft and cuddly!

    Another beauty! I love that fabric and chenille combo.

  18. 18 Lauri July 3, 2006 at 11:03 am

    Oh ny gosh! So beautiful! And I’m totally (sage) green with envy that you can find chenille in ANY color other than pink, blue, yellow or white! I would even take the robe terrycloth stuff! Absolutely beautiful quilt!!!

    That is such a wonderful blanket Linda! It looks so cuddly and calming. perfect.

    The chenille makes the quilt look very rich-great idea!

  21. 21 Lyn July 3, 2006 at 9:01 pm

    Oh my that is beautiful. Looks very comforting…..could make a king size???? I am actually thinking of trying my first quilt……..any pointers?

    It is definately Moda Seaside Rose (Moda # 12004-36) Patchwork Fabric. I have successfully gotten around 10 yards off of E-bay for a very reasonable price. And is looking fabulous in my daughter’s shabby chic bedroom! Good luck!

    I am searching desperately for 3 yards of the seaside rose patchwork fabric, would you be willing to sell some to me?

    I had made curtains for my daughters room when the fabric was in the stores, and I love it so much, and I want to make 2 x single quilts to match and now I can’t find the fabric anywhere……

    thanks ever so much
    Lesley

    Did you ever find more fabric? I’ve been looking for this same fabric and would love to order more!
