Sweet Home-Made Baby Gifts {Cherished Moments}

Wednesday, August 19, 2020






Hello Friends!  I hope you are doing well! 


I was so happy to be asked to join other amazing Makers for this blog tour showcasing this beautiful new line of fabric by Poppie Cotton called Cherished Moments.  




I so enjoyed sewing with this fabric.   Read ahead to see what I made!




When I first put my hands on this fabric, I knew immediately it would be precious for a baby girl!  Luckily I have a young friend that is expecting a baby girl! 




I wanted to be able to use all the pinks and greens in this line and I knew that patchwork would probably showcase it the best.   I remembered a sweet baby quilt pattern by Amy at Diary Of A Quilter called Lattice Baby Quilt.  She has a great tutorial for the quilt here.  




There is nothing I love better in a quilt than simple patchwork.   And this pattern is so easy.  




And the fact that this is laid out on the diagonal really gives it great interest.  I love how it came out! 




I chose to do some very simple straight line machine quilting and it came out great.  It was fast and simple.  

I'm so happy with how the little quilt  came out.  




I also decided to use up the rest of the scraps and make a Divided Basket to hold diapers, wet wipes and other necessary supplies that a mommy might want to keep handy in other rooms of the house instead of the baby room.  




I think it is always nice to have a little diaper supply caddy in the living room!  And this Divided Basket pattern by Noodlehead was absolutely perfect for this.  




I really enjoyed doing some "quilt as you go" of my scraps for the front pocket of the basket.  It was a fun way to use up scraps.  




For the back of the basket I just pieced simple patchwork squares.  




I think this quilt and basket make the best baby gift and I'm super excited to gift it to my friend.  


I loved sewing with Cherished Memories fabric.  Once again I feel that the gals at Poppie Cotton have designed such amazing fabric and I'm so honored to be asked to sew with it.

  1. Sweet fabric and a darling project. I actually made my great-niece a blanket, but it is not as cute as this wonderful quilt.
