I was very happy to be asked to make a baby quilt recently. I was given free reign as long as it was girly and had some nice quilting on it.
This is what I came up with:
I chose hearts and kept the design simple so as to leave big open areas for quilting. The finished quilt measures 35" x 43".
I used bondaweb and machine appliqed the hearts. There is no trapunto here, instead I used a thick 6 oz polyester wadding (batting). Outline quilting, then flattening the background with stippling really makes the hearts and feathers 'pop'.
I free motion quilted this on my domestic machine. I will be practicing my frame quilting in the new year but until then I am doing it they way I know best.
Decided to try a half feather in the pink border and i love how it turned out.
I finished the quilt with a piano key border, rounded off the corners and bound with a plain pink.
This quilt will be delivered to new owner next week and will be given as a gift. I hope they love it as much as I do :)
I'll leave you with one last close up.
Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous... Gorgeous!
An heirloom quilt for sure! Absolutely stunning!
I am just speechless. This baby quilt is just wonderful. Nicely done.
Gorgeous and the receiver will LOVE and CHERISH it forever! !
Have my backing rolled on and batting too. Need to cut threads and make sure top is ready to go and praying all goes well with my first quilt on new longarm!
I have until the 23rd to finish....my first queen sized ever....hope it's enough time! Lol
Absolutely stunning and the fact that you did it on a domestic machine makes it even more amazing. I am going to pin this design and keep it handy in case I ever have a special little girl that I need to make a quilt for.
Absolutely stunning Rhiannon ! I have a design for a wool wall hanging that is similar. Now I'm excited to get going on it! Just beautiful!
