Here are 2 of the quilts I have been recently commissioned to make. I have blurred out the babies’ names for privacy purposes…

I created an alligator applique by hand and used a Florida Gator fabric border for this baby boy quilt since the gift was for Gator Alumni that were having a baby boy… GO GATORS!!

For the other baby boy quilt I combined aqua, browns, and creams for the quilt top and a wave-like aqua fabric for the backing. I created a teddy bear applique from scratch and included it in the center with the boy’s name on the top/bottom of the quilt top.

    Thanks for posting!

    I put the letters on using a fusible applique method that is super simple! I trace out backwards block letters onto the paper-backed side of the fusible webbing. Then I cut the letters out and fuse them to the “wrong” side of the fabric I’m using. Then, I cut the letters out and peel off the paper-backing and then iron it down wherever I want the letter to be on the quilt. After all the letters are down, I go back with a small zig-zag stitch and stitch around every letter to hold them in place through the washing & wearing.

    Hope this helps! Feel free to contact me if you need help with a similar project.

    p.s.- I will upload the picture you requested with just the last name blurred out in a few minutes.

    Thanks!
