Baby Quilt Plus (Positivity) đŸ‘¶

Quilt Plus est terminé (et livré !)
Quilt Plus is finished (and delivered!)

Ce petit quilt (71,5 x 71,5 cm) est ma contribution au QAL Positivity de Preeti du blog Sew Preeti Quilts. Le but de ce challenge Ă©tait de donner les quilts rĂ©alisĂ©s Ă  Bernie du blog Needle and Foot, au profit d'une association en Californie, Mercyful Quilts. Mais pour ceux qui le souhaitaient, et notamment les EuropĂ©ens, il Ă©tait possible d'en faire cadeau Ă  une autre association caritative locale de son choix.

This small quilt (28'' x 28'') is my contribution to the QAL Positivity by Preeti at Sew Preeti Quilts. The goal of this challenge was to donate the quilts made to Bernie at Needle and Foot, to benefit a charity in California, Mercyful Quilts. But for those who wanted to, especially Europeans, it was possible to donate them to another local charity of our choice.

Tous les tissus sont de mon stock, les blocs plus font 7,5 inches de cÎté, et je racontais mes choix et mes aventures avec les coins dans cet article !

All the fabrics are from my stash, the plus blocks are 7.5 inches square, and I wrote about my choices and adventures with the corners in this post!

J'ai délibérément fait un quilting léger, pour garder toute sa souplesse à la petite couverture.
Du fil en dĂ©gradĂ© de verts clairs pour les contours des blocs plus sur fond gris foncĂ©, et des losanges, ainsi que pour le coeur au centre. 
Du fil blanc pour les contours des plus sur fond blanc. 
Ca en fait des fils Ă  cacher !

I deliberately lightly quilted the little blanket, to keep it soft.
Quilting in-the-ditch with light green variegated thread for the plus blocks on a dark grey background, and the diamonds, as well as for the heart in the center. 
Quilting in-the-ditch with white thread for the plus blocks on a white background. 
That's a lot of thread to bury!

Et c'est tout, pas de quilting dans les espaces en négatif (les "blancs" laissés entre les blocs) pour ne pas que l'ensemble soit raide. Mais comme c'est mon premier quilt pour bébé, je ne sais pas si c'est une bonne idée ou pas.

And that's it, no quilting in the negative space (the space left between the blocks) so the quilt doesn't look stiff. But since this is my first baby quilt, I don't know if this is a good idea or not.

Pour la doublure, j'ai choisi ce tissu coloré que j'ai acheté récemment. Des tirets en rose, jaune et bleu, j'aime bien !

For the backing, I chose this colorful fabric that I recently purchased. Dashes in pink, yellow and blue, I like it!

La bande de finition est faite dans le mĂȘme tissu que la doublure. Une longue bande de 2,5'' de large, pliĂ©e en deux, et entiĂšrement cousue Ă  la machine : la bande est cousue sur le devant, rabattue dans le dos au-delĂ  de la ligne de couture, puis cousue depuis le devant au ras de la premiĂšre couture.

The binding is made of the same fabric as the backing. A long strip of 2.5" wide, double fold, and completely machine stitchedthe binding is sewn on the front, folded over in the back beyond the seam line, then sewn from the front, in-the-ditch.

Le quilting des plus ne se voit pas beaucoup sur le dos. Seules les lignes du centre ressortent ! 
Il y a une ligne de quilting environ tous les 2 doigts, partout.

The quilting around the plus doesn't show much on the back. Only the center lines stand out! 
All quilting lines are two fingers spaced everywhere.

Comme je le disais plus haut, ce petit quilt a Ă©tĂ© destinĂ© Ă  un bĂ©bĂ©, et il a dĂ©jĂ  Ă©tĂ© livrĂ© ! 
Je ne connais pas le bĂ©bĂ©, il fait partie d'une unitĂ© de prĂ©maturĂ©s, pris en charge dans le service nĂ©onatalogie. 
Le quilt sera un lien entre le petit et ses parents lors de leurs visites, un doudou qui sera imprĂ©gnĂ© de leurs odeurs, une couverture qui le protĂšgera de la lumiĂšre ambiante dans la couveuse, et stimulera ses sens. Et il l'emmĂšnera avec lui Ă  sa sortie de l'hĂŽpital 💖

As I said above, this little quilt was intended for a baby, and it has already been delivered! 
I don't know the baby, he is part of a premature baby unit, taken care of in the neonatal department. 
The quilt will be a link between the little one and his parents during their visits, a cuddly toy that will be impregnated with their smells, a blanket that will protect him from the ambient light in the incubator, and will stimulate his senses. And he will take it with him when he leaves the hospital đŸ’–

Mais avant de partir, voulez-vous bien me donner votre avis ?
Comment quiltez-vous les quilts pour tout-petits : trĂšs peu, normalement, beaucoup ? 

But before you go, would you please give me your opinion?
How is your quilting for toddlers: very little quilting, normally quilted, densely quilted?

  7. Bravo pour ce quilt pour un prématuré. J en avais fait un en 2013 (le premier article de mon blog). Je l avais peu quilté comme toi. Je pense que si j en refaisais un pour un bébé et pas pour un prema, je le quilterais plus. Si l enfant joue avec, c est mieux qu ilsoit plus quilté pour le consolider. Tout en gardant de la souplesse. Il faut qu il soit quilté trÚs dense pour perdre la souplesse.

  11. Such a sweet baby version of Preeti’s design! I love it too! I do quilt for toddlers, babies and littles of all ages! I am of the age where I have nieces and nephews, great grandchildren, great nephews, grandchildren of friends! Lots of baby quilts! I have also donated to an organization here in the US called Jack’s Basket! jacksbasket.org.

  18. Just such a sweet quilt Frederique. I like to leave baby quilts soft and cuddly so I choose to not quilt them very densely. My motto is; less is more for babies! 😉

    RĂ©pondreSupprimer
  19. Sweet quilt. How nice that it is already in use!

    Most of my small donation quilts for children get densely quilted because they get lots of use.

  20. Lovely quilt for a baby! Yes that is a lot of threads to bury but a good quilting design. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  23. This is a beautiful little quilt, and what a great cause it went to! I'm sure both parents and the baby will love it. I love the heart in the center! For kids, I keep the quilting really simple and I always want it to be cuddly. I think your quilting is just right for the size of the quilt. Have a good weekend!

  24. Oh so very sweet!!! Its so cute and it will definitely bring comfort to a baby and his parents!!!

  25. Frederique I love your plus quilt and the colors and the backing look great. I think your quilting is perfect, especially the heart in the center. What a comforting gift for the parents and the baby and so meaningful for years to come. Nice job!

  26. Minimal quilting is perfect for a baby quilt for just the reason you mentioned - to keep it soft and pliable. I love the heart motif in the center. You have given the baby and parents a wonderful gift.

  27. Beautiful quilt and the quilting on it is perfect. Depending on the batting requirements, I found that minimal quilting on a sturdy batting (like warm and natural) is perfect and do well with lots of laundering over time.... going on 13 years with almost daily washing for a year or two and still holding up great.

  28. This is so sweet - I like how you adjusted the size for the tiny recipient. I think the idea of minimal quilting is perfect, making it much softer. Very nice!

  29. Beautiful sweet quilt. I think you did a great job quilting it and picking out the colors. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  30. Such a sweet quilt! I think your two-fingers-apart quilting looks just right for a soft project for a wee baby. The most important thing is consistent spacing, and you achieved that.

    RĂ©pondreSupprimer
  31. I think it can go either way. More dense quilting adds to the integrity of the quilt overall, supporting the seams. But too much quilting can make for a not-so-drapey final product. I think erring on the side of softness was the way to go here!

  32. Bonjour Frédérique. Il est vraiment beau ton quilt de bébé. Je suis certaine qu'il sera bien apprécié. Merci d'avoir lié ton article à Free Motion Mavericks. Bonne semaine :-)
