I have have been busting my butt here to finish this quilt lately. We are getting ready to move here in month, and I am supposed to be getting my stuff together and packing up my craft room. Instead, I decided to make my quilt for my baby girl to come in Early May.
I had fabric to a make a quilt, but once I found out I was having a girl, I changed my mind and went with something else that I had that I loved. I just wanted to use some girly fabric!!
I chose the Modern Bliss 2012 collection from Robert Kaufman, by Andie Hanna. You can see more pictures at Spoonflower.
I’m not the best at lining up things, so I arranged my squares a little differently. And after I put together my squares, I realized it was way too small, even after adding the border… so I added more to it.
I magically got them to all line up (which is rare since I have only done a few quilt tops, and well this is the second quilt I actually quilted). And I needed to add one more border, just to get the extra look I wanted.
Added some black binding, and completed the look. This is for the baby to have to lay on in the living room at our new house.
A quick back view. I quilted it very simple since I am still a beginner. But I love how it ended up looking! This was such a fun Quilt Along! There is still plenty of time to join in! Well plenty of time if you can finish in a couple weeks!
I know its not perfect, and not exactly how we were supposed to do it, but I made it a little bit more me, and I really enjoyed this pattern! I can’t wait to try the other ones in the book!
