The finished quilt revealed......
Earlier this year I shared with you some sneaky peeks at a quilt I was making for a friend's daughter who was expecting her first baby (my friend's first grandchild). I am pleased to say that the baby, a little girl, has now arrived which means I can show you the finished quilt.
My friend chose the fabrics to co-ordinate with the decorations in the nursery. I randomly pieced a central panel of fabrics adding a few little personal touches, such as an appliqued bee and heart as well as some pieces of ribbon. (Shown below before the quilt was quilted).
I then added a narrow darker border trim, followed by a wider border in a white on white print. The central panel was free motion quilted using an open all over swirl pattern.
The outer border was then more densely quilted with another swirly pattern with the motifs much closer to one another. Finally, I added a binding to match the inner narrow border.
All in all I was really thrilled with the finished quilt. My friend really liked it too and I am hoping that her daughter and the new baby will love it as well!
It turned out beautiful and will surely be cherished very much!ReplyDelete
