Intersecting Houses Baby Quilt

by Nanette Merrill
(Alpine Utah)

I love simple designs for baby quilts and this design of interlocking blocks is simple but interesting. I also like to sew quilts that are a fashion accessory for the mother of the baby in colors and fabrics that are interesting for both mom and baby to look at.


I really enjoy vintage and Japanese import fabric and I used those fabrics in this quilt so I wanted to make the blocks big enough for the fabric to be the star.

The houses are done with a fairly new and popular technique called machine sketch embroidery. This is an free and easy embroidery technique that most anyone can do. I rough outlined the design on the middle block in each section. Then using my sewing machine I sketch embroidered the houses with an technique that purposefully goes outside and inside the lines to create a sketched picture.

It was a very fun and fast quilt to make. I really enjoy using the sketch embroidery technique. I used a stipple stitch to machine quilt all around the houses. Then in the houses I just stitched outside the lines and through the roof line.
