Quilts for babies are always nice, do you agree? Made with so much love & thought of a wee soul about to take on the world.
Jenny has made this pretty quilt for friends having a baby girl................well so the story was going. A pattern by Country Quilter called "Bear Hugs", measuring 40" x 54". The purchased kit is made up from Bali fabric, then posted off to me ASAP. But, yes there are buts occasionally (not 'butts' people, this is a family show!) So the but was, the friends had a boy! So guess what Jenny is feverishly doing now? Yes indeed, making a boy quilt! I guess this one can be popped away for when a girl quilt is needed.
The sample was quilted with an all over design, I figured I could do something a bit more pleasing to the applique & piecing.
Down to business : Cross hatching, loops, stipple, funky hearts & of course ditch stitching using a Gunold variegated thread in soft peach, mauve, yellow & teal/blue over poly batting. Jenny likes me to make & attach the binding all ready for her to sit & hand stitch in place.
That's the back.
My next quilt features cats, lots of cats! I have nearly finished, but the maker is overseas, so I will have to wait to share with you.
Next is a present I made for my friend Julie as she has had a birthday. The stitchery pattern is from Honeypunkins.
Stitched with Aurifil 12wt thread, a rusty hanger & a couple of wooden pegs.
