I made another NICU incubator quilt yesterday; 
 first I sew the flannel into a 'frame' for the top fabric.
Then I tuck the top piece of cotton into the 'frame'.
I use a ton of pins so that the fabric won't scoot--it's easier to handle a bit of gathering between two pins just 4" apart than trying to sew from corner to corner with all of the layers!  I used a decorative stitch to anchor the flannel in place.
The last step is to draw and stitch several seams
 to hold the layers together.
I finished the one-
but have these cut out and waiting for me!!!!
I also finished my daily 4 1/2" block!


  1. How generous to spend your time doing this. Daughter had a friend whose baby was in NICU for months. Sadly the little guy didn't make it. The generosity of folks were so important to the family at this difficult time so I know how much your work will be appreciated. Some people even stepped in and paid the hundreds of thousands of dollars that the family owed. It does take a village at a time like this.

  2. Those are such sweet little quilts. Do they go home with the baby or are they reused by the hospital? Bless you for making them.
    I really like todays quilt square. It's so simple and elegant.
    Blessings and hugs,

  3. Sweet! I bet they will be really appreciated!

I measured out my 120" for the warp for my 24" Knitter's Loom by Ashford and began threading!  Of course, there were a few set...
