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.
This was my first humidicrib quilt. The lion picture came from one of my favourite sources of inspiration, a colouring book.
I quilted paw prints again here, as I did on the other doggy-themed humidicrib cover.
This mini quilt is truly gender neutral, I think.
Each square in this tiny quilt top is only one inch across.
I quilted in the ditch around the panda and bamboo, and then filled in the background with swirls.
Big loopy quilting and a navy blue binding finished this one.
The appliqué design for this quilt comes from the fabric I used in the binding.
This humidicrib quilt’s design is a modified version of a little quilt in the Design Collective’s book Little Birds.
With two blocks and a bit of extra fabric as filler, I had a humidicrib cover.
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?
This sheep was also inspired by a colouring book.
Purple, purple and more purple!
My favourite part is the cloud print in the background. It is subtle, but it is so appropriate.
Each square in this quilt is only one inch across. The finished quilt top is 16 x 24 inches.
I had to flip a coin to decide between cherry and strawberry cake.
I quilted this one in loops.
My humidicrib quilt for February is all about green and frogs.
I raided my scrap bag of 2½-inch squares.
Of course, a bicycle pattern needs bicycle-print fabric.
They are hard to see in this photo, but I did quilt paws into the background.
I think I will name this cat Marmalade until its new owners claim it.
Can you see the pattern or are you just going cross-eyed?
I quilted this one in an all-over stipple.
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?
