It was fun to make a girl quilt for a change, but I didn't want it to be too girly. Erin told me that they were planning a nursery with red accents that would be super pink, and when I saw this fabric, I knew it was perfect.
Maddelyn's older brother received one of the very first quilts I ever made. This is another favorite - it just turned out so cute!
I should point out that is my gramma's couch, not mine. No offense, Gramma. It's a nice couch!
I gave you a sneak peak of this baby quilt a few months ago, but I forgot to take pictures of it before I gave it away! Thankfully, I stole a few pictures when we saw them over the holiday.
Here's the quilt in progress at my gramma's house in the fall:
And here it is finished!
It looks really busy in this picture, but it isn't as crazy in person!
This gives you an idea of the size.
The back is a dot minky that is so soft. And you can see how pretty the quilting is!
I only quilted in the nine-patch squares, and left the flowers free. It made for a beautiful quilting design on the back of the quilt, too!
I found the idea in a book, but there's really no pattern. The nine-patch squares are made from jelly roll (2.5") strips, which makes cutting them a breeze. They are 2.5"x2.5" squares, and the flowers are appliqued on 6" squares.
This is one of my favorite quilts I've ever made... it was hard to give away. Hopefully Maddelyn loves it as much as I loved making it!
