Mile a Minute Baby quilts

Here are three of my baby quilts using the Mile a Minute block.  The first quilt is called Polka dot Square Dance.

Quilted with the Square Dance pantograph by Anne Bright.

A little bit of back art, a good way to use up and incorporate bits of fabric from the front of the quilt and my stash.

Polka dot square dance was a gift for Finley, my step-mother’s grand-nephew, because his grand-mother Bev fell in love with the bright colours.

The next baby quilt is called Little Hands, again bright mile a minute quilt blocks and some adorable painted hands fabric from my stash.

I used the Little Hands pantograph by Anne Bright and a rainbow variegated thread for the top of the quilt.

Back art again with complementary fabrics and extra fabrics from the front of the quilt.

This quilt has sold, to a colleague, to give as a baby gift.
For the third little quilt I picked mostly pastel colours to use in the blocks with aqua shashing to keep it gender neutral, and a cream and blue star border and corner stones.

Quilted with the Shooting Stars pantograph by Sue Schmieden and a light turquoise thread.

On the back I used an extra mile a minute block which I expanded and then added some aqua and blue fabrics from my fabric stash.

I still have this little darling; it is for sale - I’m considering setting up an Etsy account as I do have a few completed quilts that I would like to sell.

One who sleeps with a blankie is comforted with love.


  1. Two lovely quilts there! Love that hands fabric on the border and the B/W dots are just perfect for the top one, too! hugs, Julierose

  2. Lovely quilts. I love the hand print material. So cute.
