This time, I gave the mom-to-be and grandmother a few pattern options as the mom had picked out a pink, teal, and purple theme. All of the patterns were square and/or triangle based. She picked out a large scaled pinwheel. Each of the half-square triangles finished at 10". The final size of the quilt was around 45" squared.
Here's a shot of the embroidery in progress:
I put embroidery on each side: the baby's first and middle name on one side with a message from her grandparents on the opposite. On the other side is her birth date and time and the other side has her weight and length at birth.
Basting this quilt proved a bit difficult as my little helper was not as helpful as she thought!

I quilted the center at a diagonal and then did echo quilting in the borders.

I loved how crinkly it became after washing! That's my favorite part!
I totally forgot to take a full picture of the backing. Here's a small view of the backing. I used two teal fabrics as well as pink and purple fabrics from the front. The binding is a small polka dot that I also used in the front.
I really love how this quilt turned out.

I agree. Pricing is the hardest part of quilting for others!! YReplyDelete
