A bit of idle curiosity inspired me to wonder how many humidicrib quilts I have made over the years. I think I photographed most of them.
Let’s see …
I am proud of my quilting here! I stitched in the ditch around the boat and then quilted waves on the sea and windy swirls in the sky.
I quilted this one in an all-over stipple.
I quilted paw prints again here, as I did on the other doggy-themed humidicrib cover.
I raided my scrap bag of 2½-inch squares.
Each square in this tiny quilt top is only one inch across.
I think I will name this cat Marmalade until its new owners claim it.
My favourite part is the cloud print in the background. It is subtle, but it is so appropriate.
This was my first humidicrib quilt. The lion picture came from one of my favourite sources of inspiration, a colouring book.
This mini quilt is truly gender neutral, I think.
Of course, a bicycle pattern needs bicycle-print fabric.
This humidicrib quilt’s design is a modified version of a little quilt in the Design Collective’s book Little Birds.
I had to flip a coin to decide between cherry and strawberry cake.
Can you see the pattern or are you just going cross-eyed?
Each square in this quilt is only one inch across. The finished quilt top is 16 x 24 inches.
The appliqué design for this quilt comes from the fabric I used in the binding.
I quilted this one in loops.
They are hard to see in this photo, but I did quilt paws into the background.
I ended up using grey binding as it had fairy-tale text, which seemed appropriate.
The dog is a mustardy yellow. Does that make it a golden retriever puppy?
Purple, purple and more purple!
Big loopy quilting and a navy blue binding finished this one.
I quilted in the ditch around the panda and bamboo, and then filled in the background with swirls.
My humidicrib quilt for February is all about green and frogs.
With two blocks and a bit of extra fabric as filler, I had a humidicrib cover.
This sheep was also inspired by a colouring book.
And that adds up to … lots!
One was made as a nursery wall-hanging for my Spanish teacher. The others all were donated to a local hospital’s neotatal unit.
I wonder whether I have forgotten any.
Any favourites among the bunch?
