{Gone Fishing} Baby Quilt


Hello and welcome to start the new chapter at ‘Nero’s Post and Patch’!

Gone Fishing baby quilt by Teje

Good way to begin the new year and new chapter in my blog is to show the new baby quilt {Gone Fishing}.

Gone Fishing baby quilt by Teje

This baby quilt was a request from a dear friend for her new born grandson. I was really happy to have these blue fish fabrics in my stash (bought from Finland).


I was told that baby’s mom likes stars so I made big stars featuring those fun fabrics. To make the stars pop out well I decided to add shashing which I don’t do often. Sky blue sashing is Kona cotton. Quilting is made by hand as you can see, with Perle cotton no 8 in turquoise.


For the backing I had the perfect shade of blue and the label was made with few fishes. If you like to read more about this project, click HERE.


There are many linky parties each week and I like to join them to meet my quilter friends. On of my favourites is ‘Fabric Tuesday’ because it’s the first party I found and started to join. Megan and Heather from ‘Quilt Story’ are really sweet ladies and I’m very happy that they have featured several times my works. Thank you ladies for featuring also this quilt top…

It’s finally winter here and we have had rains and some very cold days. But today the sky is blue like in the photo above! I just took out the little triangles and got few great shoots – yes that quilt top is finished and you’ll see it soon.

So the baby quilt is out of my hands now and it’s time to start to think about the next baby quilt, for a girl this time. I have one pattern in my mind; something I think would be fun for a baby and a pattern that I haven’t done before.

  1. Happy New Year, Teje! And what a great way to start off the new year and a new blog with this handsome baby quilt! The hand quilting is beautiful. Congratulations on your first finish for 2016!


  2. Onnea ja menestystä uudelle blogillesi! Kyllä me kaikki seurataan sinua uuteen osoitteeseen! Vauvan vanhemmat ovat varmasti iloisia peitosta, se on niin ihana. Nero on sharmantti herra! Halauksia hänelle ja Hannalle myös, eikä Nelliäkään saa unohtaa! Joko triangelit tosiaan ovat valmiit? Olet mahdottoman nopea, eikä se nopeus näy työn jäljessä yhtään! Käsintikkauksetkin aina niin siisteissä rivissä. Hyvää alkavaa viikkoa.


    • Kiitos kovasti Marle! Halaukset menivat perille! Triangelit on hakaneuloitettu mutta ei se kovin iso tyo ole; mahtuu ompelupoydalle. Nyt vaan pitais keksi mita siihen tikkais. x Teje
