My hubby told me Friday he needed a baby quilt for one of his friends. I have been asking for months if they were having a boy or girl and he has not bothered to find out...They are expecting a baby girl, but there have been some complications, so they have had to go over to Denver for the baby's delivery and a surgery after she is delivered. Fingers crossed that all will go well! If I had known it was a girl months ago like I asked, I would be doing the girl embroideries for the Shush I'm Quilting BOW quilt along.
I dug through my stash of pre-made quilts and found this one. The letters are a panel and this is the second one like this I have made. One of our local quilt shops designed it several years ago, they have since gone out of business. :( Some of the fabrics are 30's prints. I was not able to get any more of the red to use as a binding like I used in my first version. I hope the cheery fabrics will be a hit.
This was one of my first attempts at long arm machine quilting. I used the shell groovy board. Since then I am much more comfortable with free motion quilting.
I picked a 30's back with daisies. You can't get much happier than that! I cheated and did the binding by machine.
The quilting just kind of blends in with the busy patterns.
