Baby quilts are items that are cherished by children for years and years to come. I still have the quilt that my grandma made me when I was born. With the Blue Ocean Water Wheels Quilt you will create a wonderful memory of you for any child who receives it. They will love it for keeping them warm and cozy, for playing on so they don't get dirty and for comforting them in times of sadness.

The Story Behind Ocean Water Wheels

My mother-in-law and aunt-in-law host and teach a quilting retreat every fall in Wisconsin Dells, WI. At the 2007 retreat I accomplished a lot. It was my first weekend away from home since my daughter had been born the previous year so I knew it was my chance to get some things done. The project at the retreat was to pick a quilt from the “Square in a Square” book by Jodi Barrows. I picked five…I completed three. I did sleep some, so I have to admit that I cut two of the patterns down to baby size quilts making my goals a bit more attainable.

The Ocean Water Wheel Quilt was the first quilt I completed at the retreat. I used mainly a combination of commercially printed fabric with a few scraps of hand-dyes mixed in. I put a blue checkered flannel on the back to create a coziness I love and I’m sure a child will also love. My aunt-in-law, Barb Raisbeck, did the machine quilting of a dolphin pattern with her long-arm machine. Size: 40” x 28.5”
