An Astro Boy Quilt For Baby Harith

I made this baby quilt for bff Ida's son, Harith. I love this space themed panel and prints by Jill McDonald, perfect for little astro boys :)




It's a simple panel quilt. No pattern, I just simply whipped it up as I go. I patched the top and bottom frame of the panel and added outer border. The quilting is a mixture of free motion meandering on the border and patched frame + some outline quilting on the panel itself. And I also machine bind the quilt.

I love the back of this quilt. I used an apple print backing and included a special little message on the quilt label :



And the best part of making a quilt for a baby is of course seeing the baby on the quilt! :D

Here is the cutest astro boy ever, baby Harith (he is 7 month old) when he came to our house to pick up the quilt :




Isn't he a cutie?

Ok the next photo is epic - we wanted to snap a photo of both Harith and my Erfan together but Erfan was sleepy and cranky. So this is what happened :


Priceless!!! :D

  4. A-ah Zila, straight line akak mesti guna walking foot gedabak tu haha...memang le ok sebab quilt ni nipis je hehe...akak pakai fleece je dalam ni and selalu kalau quilt akak suka cotton batting nipis (low loft) tu, so easier to quilt :D

    Super cute! I am glad to have found sewing enthusiasts here in Malaysia. I am from India and recently moved to KL. Please do visit adithisammasews.com when you find time. i have tutorials on mostly kids clothing and indian outfits for women like salwar kameez.

    Trying to manage time after relocating and hope to get back to sewing this week as i need to make a pretty dress for my daughter's b'day next monday.

  34. Dearest Zura, We women especially mom's are too hard on ourselves. It's okay to give yourself 'permission' to blog when you are able. Personally, I love this pic heavy entry. I am not Islamic, so I I like seeing what you all would wear for Eid. Beautiful!
    Love

  35. Hi Zura :)
    Your thoughts about your parents warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes; my parents are both gone now and I miss them on most days at some time or another. As we get older we realize how important our parents are to us; we must enjoy and respect them while they are with us! I recently found your web site and I'm so happy to meet someone from Malaysia who enjoys sewing too!
    Take care, and thank you for your thoughtfulness on your Blog.
