My fourth grand-niece was born last week. Isn't Olivia so sweet?
Olivia's baby quilt is now ready to go. I used a really sweet jelly roll (Birdie by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda), Kona white and the Whirlygig pattern by Amelie Scott Designs. The quilt measured 48" x 60" before washing, about 45" x 57" after.
I've seen a quilting pattern similar to this a bunch of times online, so I drew it out on paper before I started. I wanted a loose design, so I started out really big. As you can see, I tightened up significantly as I made my way around the quilt.
See the tiny flowers in the center and giant flowers at the edge?
I used one extra block and some extra strips to make the back wide enough.
More jelly roll strips became the binding. I bordered the label with some leftover binding.
I had saved all the lighter strips for the binding, and I thought they needed some help. I think the bright pink ric rac did the trick.
This week was big sister Abby's 2nd birthday. She loves playing in her toy kitchen, so I made her a cute new apron.
Giant dots on the front, tiny dots on the back. I followed this tutorial by Yards and Yards.
