I've been getting the best baby quilts in for quilting lately! My customers are giving me so many ideas that I'm stowing away for the next time I need a quick baby shower gift. Check out this first quilt from my client Julie:
|36 x 45 Baby Quilt with Rapunzel B2B Quilting Design|
Isn't it fabulous?! The hearts, stem and leaves were fused and machine appliquéd to a single width of background fabric. It's simple, but so effective, don't you think? We chose the Rapunzel quilting design to echo the shape of the leaves and carry the movement of the appliqué design across the rest of the quilt.
|Quilting Detail. Glide Thread in Cotton Candy + Quilters Dream Bamboo Batting|
I used a pink thread, Glide in Cotton Candy, because I wanted the quilting to blend into the appliqué fabrics and stand out more in the background. The quilting is fairly dense, but this quilt is still going to be soft and snuggly thanks to the lack of any stiff or bulky seams and the fabulous bamboo/silk/cotton Quilter's Dream Bamboo batting. I know you guys like to see before and after photos...
