baby quilt - quilt festival

A newbies version of a baby quilt. I was lucky enough to win a set of fat quarters from a wonderful blog so I decided to make a baby quilt. It was from the Joel Dewberry Notting hill collection (tangerine). I was over the moon when I won this. I got to my graph paper again and started to draw. It didn't take long to come up with what I wanted to make. A simple baby quilt.

 After I was finished I went to the store for backing and was so excited to find this fabric. I felt like it worked perfectly.

 I am totally in love with the pinks and pretty!
I used a variegated thread for the stipple quilting. I found one with light pinks and orange. I love the final result especially on the solid maroon color.
A silly shot my kids wanted to take. From the floor as they hold up one side.

Of course nothing says baby quilt like two crazies on a quilt. :)

I am not sure who the lucky person who is going to get the quilt is yet, but I am sure I will find someone soon!!

Here is a link to the quilt festival.

I can't wait to see all the quilts that so many wonderful quilters have put together.


  1. This is so pretty... beautifully done!

  2. This is a lovely idea for a baby quilt. Your design has worked well with these fabrics. It looks great.
