Another Baptism Quilt

Today I have Another Baptism Quilt!

We recently had a baptism in our family, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. baptism quiltThis is for one of my grandsons’. 

His favorite color is green. 

However, there are not very many green minky prints out there.  So we went with a solid green to accent this fun quilt!

The grey and blue prints were fun to use on this boy quilt.baptism quiltI had the corner block embroidered before I sewed the quilt together.  Now he will always be able to remember his baptism!baptism quiltAll of the quilt is out of minky fabric, except for the binding.  I just use a cotton fabric for all of my bindings.  Minky is just too bulky and hard to sew as a binding.

Green minky for the back, brought more of his favorite color to the quilt!baptism quiltHere is a full length of the quilt.

I bought one-third yard of each of 6 different minky fabrics.  Make sure they are 60″ wide fabrics.

The blocks are cut 10 x 10″.  

Lay the blocks out 5 blocks across by 7 blocks down.  (You will have one extra block)

Or you could lay your blocks out 6 across by 6 down.

It was necessary to make this quilt longer, because Gage is a tall boy!baptism quiltHe said that he loved the quilt!  That always makes a grandma happy!  :)

We had a luncheon after the baptism at our house, so to decorate I added some flowers to the island in the kitchen:baptism flowersAnd a fun little letterboard:baptism quoteThis is a popular song that is sung at a lot of “Mormon” baptisms.

So that is Another Baptism Quilt in the books!

We still have a few more to go!   Love That!

I am still organizing and working on getting my kitchen cupboards all clean and nice!  It is a job, but I just do one cupboard a day and then it is manageable! 

What projects are you working on this Winter?

Hope you have a wonderful Day!  Thanks for Visiting!

    1. Kathryn, Thank you for taking the time to write your kind comment. I love to sew and I started making a quilt for their baptism, with my first grandchild, so now I need to complete it through the last! I hope that you can get back to sewing if it is something that you love. Make a quilt for yourself to start with! :)

    1. Rita, Money for their missionary fund is a a great idea too! I have never thought of that. I will have to remember that for other special occasions. Thanks for the great idea.

  3. Love your quilts for your grand kids. It is just beautiful. All the time that you take is a labor of love. What lucky grand kids. I started to make a blanket for mine, that just didn’t happen. They get bears from build-a-bear with white clothes on.

    1. Colette, Thank you so much for taking the time to write your kind comment. I appreciate your sweet words and your support. Your idea of a build-a-bear in white is a cute idea too! Then are lucky grand kids also! Hope you have an awesome day!
