Baby Love

I'm not sure what it is lately, but I've been surrounded by people having adorable little babies. Even Will and Kate recently welcomed a new bundle of joy (admittedly, I am a closet Anglophile and adore the British royals).  My baby is now 1 1/2 and I'm ready to have another one but hubby is not. So since it will be a few years until I can hold my own little newborn, I'm living vicariously through a friend of mine who welcomed a new baby girl today.  I don't get to sew girly things very often and had so much fun making this quilt.  I just love pink! And scallops. And chevrons.  And monograms.

This is the second quilt I've quilted myself.  This is a big step for me as I've always sent my quilts out to professional quilters because the task of quilting seemed too daunting.  There's no free motion quilting on this, all straight lines with a walking foot, but hopefully sometime soon I'll feel confident enough to try to free motion a quilt. This quilt pattern will not be available through a tutorial.  I am working on putting together patterns that will be available through and Etsy shop.


  1. This is a darling quilt. I love the colours and the initial is a fabulous touch.
