Nothing like the anticipation of a new baby to get one's sewing mojo back!
|Pattern used: Summer Song by Villa Rosa Designs.
Quilt measures 44"x55".
I love watching a fat quarter bundle turn into a wonderful quilt.
For this one I used a Purples Bella Solid pack.
I've never made a commissioned quilt. But this was for a work friend who wanted something special for her new little niece. She requested solid purples with grays.
I don't think I've ever made a quilt from solids...and this one has quickly become a favorite!
I used my Beautiful, Colorful, Butterfly pantograph to add a girly touch.
I found a fun "Love You To The Moon and Back" gray backing...
...and I was sure to create a tag that our friend could personalize for her new niece.
I had some backing left over so made a matching receiving blanket too.
I love the texture of the pom-pom trim, don't you?
I have more baby quilts to make before December and may use this pattern again??
Between the cooler Fall weather and the anticipation of babies, it feels good to be sewing again.
With smiles. Val
