Teal Equilateral Baby Quilt – With Applique Baby Name

Teal triangle Baby Quilt

This quilt is one of my finish along quilt goals (see them all in my original post) It feels great to be finishing quilts after taking a lot of time off from sewing over the summer, as well as time spent on giant projects that take months and months. Speaking of, quilting the giant monsters are next on my list. Yikes!

In the meantime, I love to applique baby names onto quilts! I had a quilt with a D (for Dana) when I was little and just loved it!

For more info on my letter applique process, you can check out my monogram tutorial. For these two quilts, I used a raw edge applique and free-motion quilted down the edges. I used three trips around each letter for a sketched look, and a more secure finish.

My favorite baby font for quilt is Winnie the Hoop, which I discovered on How About Orange, you can download it for free here.

Charlie - Triangle Baby Quilt Back with Applique name

For the Charlie quilt, I appliqued on the name before layering the quilt, so that the stitches from tacking down the name didn’t show up on the triangle side of the quilt. I was kind of bummed how much the threads from quilting the triangles distract from the baby’s name, but I don’t think the baby will care!

Fanyi - Applique Baby Name
Fanyi is the new baby of one of Matt’s co-workers. Well, the baby was born in April….I had thought about making them a quilt and it slipped my mind. But better late than never! This quilt ended up being an orphan for a while, but I’m so happy it will have a new home. It uses some fun vintage fabrics.
