When my best friend told me she was expecting her second baby I immediately knew I wanted to make her a quilt and I knew just the fabric that I would be using for it. A few years ago I found a set of these fabric samples and fell in love with them but had never come across a reason to use them... nothing felt right, nothing that is until now! The fabric has somewhat of a "hippy farm" feel (that's how I describe it anyway) and it was perfect for this baby. As the due date got closer I began realize that I hadn't ever actually made a quilt before so I enlisted the help of my Grandmother, Pat and my friend, Vivid to help guide me on my quilting journey and since neither of them are local to me I probably bothered them too frequently with questions! So this is my shout out to those two lovely ladies, thank you a thousand times over for being patient with me and my late night questions... and thanks to y'all I now have a new hobby! So without further ado, here are some photos of the quilt progression... enjoy!
Here is the quilt laid out and ready to be sewn.
Here is a look at the back of the quilt. Since this was a smaller sized quilt I was able to do the quilting myself by "stitching in the ditch" with my sewing machine.
And here SHE is! Little Miss Penelope laying on her quilt!
