A Baby Quilt For Ian

 Here is a quilt that I made for little Baby Ian Burke.  Ian is our niece and husband's newborn son, their first.  I wanted to do some curved piecing, and I've got to say, this sure fit the bill!  I used blues and yellows, since NieceStitches loves all things Swedish. 

NieceStitches was nice enough to put this photo of Ian on Facebook for his 3-month picture.  I was so excited to see my quilt there with Ian!

Here is a close-up of the quilting I did on the quilt.  Simple curves between the seams, forming a mesh of circles.  Lots of fun to do.

And here is the back of the quilt.  I used a really pretty Harmony Art organic cotton for the back, and added in some strips of the fabric used on the front, as well.  The light blue fabric is called Silent Stumps in Harmony's collection, and is a nice sateen for a wonderfully soft feel.

I am going to finally get to meet little Ian this summer, and I can't wait.  I should add also, that this precious little guy is SisterStitch's first grand baby, so she is head-over-heals about him.    


  1. LOVELY!!!!!!! Oh Jan, what a great gift. I am honored you included Harmony Art fabric. What a treasure for your niece and Ian.

  2. This quilt truly is wonderful, and has been well-used by Ian already! You did a beautiful job on it. And I do love the Swedish touch, too!

  3. Glad you like it, Brita! It was a pleasure to sew.
