This pretty baby quilt was quilted with the pantograph hearts and bloom and the only thing sweeter than the top of this quilt is the adorable and soft flannel backing.
These quilts have been so much fun to work on! Baby quilts are great projects, they aren’t so big that they take what sometimes feels like forever to make.
My daughter recently had their second baby. She and I had discussed the baby’s quilt many times over the last months and she eventually chose the pattern Ivy League from Wren Collective and the palette that was used in this version of the quilt…
I was able to connect with Rachel Thomeczek of the Wren Collective https://wren-collective.com and she kindly shared the palette that was used. Check out her patterns there are several that call to me.
The fabrics are from the Painters Palette from Paintbrush Studios and I ordered them from Pineapple Fabrics. https://www.pineapplefabrics.com
This was my first time using the Painters Palette fabrics and it won’t be my last. They are a little heavier and have a wonderful sheen to them.
To backtrack a little I had originally ordered another palette but it wasn’t quite right, thankfully though a portion of it was absolutely perfect for the backing that we both had our hearts set on. It’s a sweet out of print Cotton+Steel fabric called Flower shop and there just wasn’t quite enough of it… adding the 3 rows from the first quilt top try worked perfectly. *on a side note had I not taken the time to straighten the grain…see my previous post on the quilt…I don’t believe that it would have laid straight when finished.
The quilting is freehand adding a soft organic look and feel to the quilt. Using a 60wt thread allows the stitches to take a backseat to the design.
I hope that this little one and her big sister will spend many hours happily snuggling under their quilts (and making tents and other adventures!) made with so much love and prayers in every stitch.
For some reason I’ve been in the baby quilt making mode these last few months.
My original plan was for this first quilt to be the back of the second but then when it was pieced it just seemed so soft and sweet that it needed to be it’s own quilt.
I’ve been very inspired by some of the different quilts I’ve noticed on peoples blogs lately and thought this fabric would adapt well to what is being called Modern Quilts.
