A friend just had a little girl last week. So I whipped up this quilt from the scraps left over from the hourglass quilt top I posted about here.
I used some leftovers to applique her name to the back. Fun!
It was a miracle I found this backing fabric in my stash. It is from a Connecting Threads collection called “A Sip of Summer.” I told you I am loving orange lately. The binding is Denyse Schmidt. It measures 30.5” square.
I ran out of batting while making this little quilt, so I used a yard of white quilter’s flannel I had on hand from fabric.com. I crossed my fingers when I put it in the wash because I was nervous everything might shrink badly (I don’t prewash anything anymore) but it turned out just right! I love the soft feeling of the linen and hope baby Grace does too.
My next project will be for Grace’s big brother. I just received all my Polaroids from the swap a few days ago and am putting them together in 12” blocks geared for boys. Luckily I have about 200 Polaroids to choose from!
Linking up to WIP Wednesday.
