Making a Baby Quilt for the Wall

I started by Mistyfusing a variety of Batik fabrics, keeping in mind the colors for the baby's room.

Using a Goddess Sheet to fuse, to protect my iron.  Mistyfuse makes these.

Using the Goddess Sheet, it really helps the Mistyfuse bond well to the fabric.  You will always be able to tell what side the Mistyfuse is on.

Okay, I Mistyfused alot of different fabrics, to utilize all of the colors.  Whatever I don't use, will end up in the Mistyfused scrap tower, sorted by color, for some other project.
These fabrics will become the borders for my baby quilt.  You are probably asking yourself if I normally do borders, I do not, except for this particular project, where I am framing a piece of artwork in the center.

Cutting up and putting back together to create a long string of fabrics

Free motion machine quilted.  It measures to about 11x14

  1. I love how that came out, such a cute idea. I have some kid's fabrics that I won and plan on making charity quilts, so fun to see ideas that I can use to make them. I got my mistyfuse package today, so I plan on reading the packages to see what uses they have and then planning something around them.


  2. A beautiful result......smashing central designs : )
