Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

by Teje Karjalainen




Hello and welcome to ‘Blogger’s Quilt Festival’ and ‘Nero’s Post and Patch’! For my second entry to this fantastic quilt show, I like to show the baby quilt ‘Baby Stars’. You can see my other entry ‘Happy Days’ HERE.


When my dear friend was going to be a grandmother, I wanted to make a quilt for the baby. I had made some stars and had an idea to use them and add some squares which I had wanted to make for a long time.  We didn’t know if the baby is a boy or a girl … mother likes bright colours … so I picked oranges, greens, turquoise, white … and made the ‘Baby Stars’ 1. When I knew that it is a boy, I added green binding. For a girl it would have been orange.

This pattern showed up loved and favoured, so I decided to make a second quilt and pattern for it. This time I wanted to use less colours so I chose greens and blues.

With this same pattern I have made also baby quilt for a girl, but using only squares. I like that also very much – with all the oranges, pinks and reds. Have a look HERE ‘Baby Squares’.

  1. This is such a great pattern, Teje. I love your boy version but I think any colours would look lovely for this quilt 🙂

    • Thank you Janine! This is great pattern because you can use any colours – even only one solid with white or any other colour. What if the background were colourful and stars with squares white? x Teje

  24. Todella kaunis tilkkutyö, toivottavasti se menestyy festivaaleilla. Voitko auttaa: yritän viime tingassa laittaa omaa työtäni mukaan, mutten löydä mistään sitä linkyä 😦 Pitäisikö sen olla siellä, mistä näkyvät jo tähän mennessä mukaan ilmoitetut työtkin? Mielestäni tänään pitäisi vielä voida liittyä mukaan…

  25. Admiring your hand stitching, lovely!

  26. I love that quilt–the colors, the block combination, the arrangement. And the hand stitching.

I would love to hear from you! If you have a moment, please leave a message!
