Another finish! I actually got this one done the same weekend as the Dino Quilts, but wanted to wait until the package arrived at Lady B's house. Lady B is the affectionate name the baby's parents have given her while they wait. And because Lady B is taking her time, the quilt arrived before she did (send good thoughts to her momma who is now officially overdue).
The colors were really hard to capture on this one and all of the pictures feel a little off. Trust me that it all worked together! Michael Miller's jewel tones never fail. :)
After seeing this Baby Life Quilt over on Moda Bake Shop, I knew that I wanted to use those words on a baby quilt. Lady B's nursery has a lot of words and phrases so I figured she would be the lucky gal! I appliqued them using the starch method (basically douse the applique pieces with spray starch and use spray baste to temporarily tack it to the background while you machine applique the edge). I LOVED it. The words were easy to applique and the quilt is soft as can be after washing.
The quilting is wavy lines. Two of the squares are horizontal and two are vertical.
I also included a little moleskin notebook for Mom and Dad to record the hilarious things their two and a half year old son is saying these days. I'm sure he'll have lots to say about Lady B. :)
Here's hoping everything goes smoothly with Lady B's entrance into the world. I can't wait to meet her!
