Little Ruby Swiss Quilt Finish

When Camille from Bonnie and Camille posted previews of Little Ruby I knew I had to have it. Then when I saw the Swiss Quilt pattern all done in reds and white I knew my little Ruby needed one in her life. I so love how it turned out and as a bonus it was so fast and easy I've made two! I share the blue version next week. For now the red one...

Love!! There are not words for how I feel about this one. It is so perfect for my sweet girl and she loves it as much as I do.

I had so much fun with the quilting on this one!! I always quilt with Aurifil 50wt on my domestic juki. This time I tried a bit of a flower design. I'd never done this one before but after drawing it a few times on some blank paper I was ready to roll. The red thread seems like a bold choice but since the backing and most of the quilt was red it really hid my mistakes well.

I love the backing and binding on this one too!! Those biased scallops have my heart and this floral print was my favorite in the original Ruby as is even better all little! The tag fits so well and came from yardage by Sweetwater for Moda.
My little Ruby just loves it!! She kept coming over and giving it loving pats as it was in progress and then when it was finished she did lots of hopping and jumping and said, "It's so comfy and rosey!!"

Here are my Ruby's two ruby quilts together. The top is from the original Ruby line and was made in anticipation of her birth. They are so fun together!

Another shot of the two ruby quilts.

Here are the backings of the two quilts together. When Bonnie and Camille first told everyone about Little Ruby they said how it was sweet and miniature, here you can see the size difference between the two.

  1. This is really nice Julie! And your little Ruby is just adorable!! :-)

  2. Congrats on the finish and great job on the FMQ. But, your little one steals the show in the photos - too, too sweet!

  3. They work so well together! They are fantastic. It's hard to believe that you made them a couple of years apart. Ruby,of course, is the connecting cutie. Love that toothy smile!

  4. Too cute! Great scrappy quilt that looks "tame" yet still cozy.

  5. Such a happy looking face, yes, she does love her new quilt!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a quick note!
