Baby Fresh

I have a finish that has been waiting to be shipped off for a week.  It started off as picking out some pretty blue prints from my stash for my SIL.  She is doing the baby's room in blue and gold.  I did manage to sneak a few pinks in as well for good measure.  She is having a girl like me and we are both due within a couple days of each other.  Once I had all my charm squares cut out, the piecing was underway and I was happily sewing.


Inspiration for this baby quilt came from Nana's Company.  I stitched the bunny,kitty and teddy bear from a pattern on Etsy by Nana's Company.  The only thing different is the size of the overall quilt I enlarged. and I bound the quilt instead of using lace as she did in hers I believe.  I had some leftover pale blue ric rack that I thought paired extremely well.

For the quilting, swirls everywhere.  They were a lot of enjoyment!  (see some of the pinks)  When I washed it and then air dried, I was in love with how crinkly it turned out. 



Chevrons in flannel are Riley Blake and the binding is Kona in a blue shade.







My favorite designers are embedded in this quilt.  Sarah Jane, Aneela Hoey and Tasha Noel.  Patchwork quilts and hand embroidery...ahhhhh.........sweet bliss <3 br="">

I sent it off yesterday with an arm saver (like I showed you in my previous post) in blue and colorful dots!!!  Hope it brings her a big smile!

Oh my gosh have you been busy! The quilts you are making along with your gorgeous embroidery will be lifetime keepsakes. So pretty! I also love washing up a quilt for crinkly goodness! Sometimes that is all I think about when quilting because I cannot wait ;). I went back to your last post on the arm saver which is so clever and fell in love with that dresser! Gorgeous!!

I absolutely LOVE the embroidery. It makes the quilt extra special. And turquoise and red are a favorite combination of mine. Just beautiful!
