So. Darn. Cute!
For these quilts, I used the collections called Mod Tod for the boy quilt and Sunny Happy Skies for the girl quilt.
For the pattern, I gravitated again towards my Moda addiction: thank you Moda Bake Shop! Tons of free downloadable patterns in PDF using the Moda pre-cuts. (Love. It. )
I used the pattern Snuggle Play Laugh Love quilt from Jennifer at Gable House Sewing. (thank you Jennifer!)
It was my first time doing a diagonal quilt and I didn't realize you were not supposed to "stretch" your fabric to make your seams meet, not even a little bit! So my quilt tops didn't lay perfectly flat at first. Nothing the quilting didn't fix later. But that meant I couldn't add the border. Aaaaw! (I know, I was disappointed, to say the least.)
Well they turned out great I think! The perfect size for a stroller blanket or a car seat blanket. They are about 32 inch square.
Printed fabric in the back is from Ikea.
I decided to stipple the quilts using free motion quilting. I love doing it and really like getting better at it too.
I hope Miss P. and Mister D. grow to use them, love them, get them all dirty from carrying them everywhere and sleeping with them. :-)
Congratulations to parents A. and S. for their two little bundles of joy!!!!
P.S. oh yeah, check out the new quilt label with my logo. :-)
(Please excuse my feet! whoops!)
