Today I finished a pretty little baby quilt for a new little cousin. It was inspired by the color of her room.
I know you’ve seen this design before (a few times!), but I wanted to keep the pieces large to show the ribbon print fabric, so here it is in living color. I also used a piece of the new Grunge collection, which perfectly bridges the spectrum between lavender and orchid. The light fabrics are hard to see here, but they are dots and chevrons on cream.
The backing is an irridescent damask in a beautiful lavender.
I quilted this with variegated Poly Quilter from Superior. It was the perfect colors, but I have never been able to get it to sew in my machine before (I think it’s 30 wt.). Maybe it was the recent tune-up, but I had little problem this time. The big size 100 needle punched visible holes in the back, but they closed up when I washed it.
Now I have to break it to Krissi that we’re sending “her” quilt away. She’s pretty attached.
