Carson’s “Play Ball” Quilt & Giveaway: {RB Quilt Kit} **ENDED**

I am beyond the moon excited to show you guys Carson’s finished quilt!!!
(Remember it was one of my New Year’s Resolutions?)
Are you ready?
Play-Ball-Quilt
It is exactly what I was hoping for and looks perfect in his room!
Finished-quilt-in-room

The quilt pattern is Baby Steps and the fabric is Play Ball. Both by Riley Blake Designs.
I had a vague idea in my mind of how I wanted this quilt to look, and had been looking and looking for the right pattern.
As soon as I saw the “Baby Steps” one, I knew it was exactly what I wanted.
I added two extra rows to make it a little longer. The pattern was so easy to follow that I was able to whip up the quilt top in one day. (Of course it did help that my mom was in town so she could play with the kids while I sewed).
Quilt-Top
As soon as I finished the top, I took it to Material Girls in South Jordan, Utah where you can drop of your quilts to be “free-motion quilted” by Wendy of Eagle Mountain Quilting.
I am thrilled with the sports pattern I chose!
Quilting-pattern-top
My son loves fleece and similar soft fabric, so I put minky on the back and was so happy that the pattern showed up just as well on that fabric!
Quilting-pattern-back
Wendy had it done within a week!
As soon as I got it back, I hand-stitched the binding and couldn’t wait to get it on Carson’s bed.
Quilt-on-bed
It turned out better than I could have ever hoped for and is one of my favorite projects to date!!!
(My son also loves it, which makes my heart so happy!)

And since Riley Blake Designs loves you guys so much, one of you is going to win this complete Baby Steps project kit – includes pattern and fabric to make quilt top and binding!
I’m keeping it simple to enter. Just leave a comment on this post!
Of course I would love if you checked out more of the fantastic fabric by Riley Blake Designs and liked them on Facebook, but that’s completely up to you!
Giveaway will run until Monday, March 19th @ 8 pm MST.
Have fun and good luck!
Tam

  28. It is awesome! Lucky little boy! Like the minkee backing but I think I'd be scared of that! Everytime I use minkee I curse it's slipperiness, but the end result is always worth the extra pins:) ( even though I'm a bit lazy of a pinner

  54. Love it! So cute! I want to do blankets for all of my kids. One crochet, one sewn. The sewn ones are going to take longer though, I think, because I'm not as comfortable sewing, so I have to wait until my MIL get home from her mission.

  86. Isn't it interesting when you have a project visualized only in your mind. And you somewhat have this idea of what the fabric should look like. Usually by the time you find the fabric, you've forgotten the project (oh-wait, seriously, is that JUST ME?!) I have been looking for a "woodsy print" for my new grandson, BABY STEPS, I sew heart you!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. What an adorable quilt! My fingers are crossed so I can make one of my own.

  91. Your projects are amazing. I am so glad I found your page. Many talents you have been given. Would love the kit for making baby quilts.
