Baby Quilt Finish

I cannot believe I did not take more pictures of this project! I normally take too many pictures, and this time I only have a couple of the finish. I was commissioned to make a baby quilt for my best friend to give to another one of her friends whom had a baby girl. I was told the desired colors were antique white, pink, brown and avocado green. The friends house was designed traditional with white walls so the colors could not be too bold - there ruled out my stash! 
So off to the fabric store I went in search for what I could make this baby quilt from. 
All I can show you is the finish and tell you that my friend was very pleased with it.
 I wish I had a better picture to show, you can barely make out the squares. I have already given it to my friend so there is no getting more.
 I did four different traditional blocks and laid out the pattern to have them run on a diagonal.

This care label was hand stitched and attached at the binding stage. I used a bounce sheet  to  back the label and adhered it with Wonder Under, then the binding stitches finished it off. 
Have you ever made a project and sent it away only to realize you didn't get a picture?


  1. Absolutely fabulous, girl! You rock! Love the way you made the label, too!

  2. Very Pretty!! Not your normal stuff, but pretty just the same. And very, very good quilting! I'm always sending away things and not getting a good picture of it.

  3. Amazing quilt progress you have been making. I feel like I might need to get my butt in gear!

  4. Wonderful quilt! Lovely colours. I often forget to take a photo of the finished quilt. It's probably because I am still finishing it at the last minute.

  5. Gorgeous quilt -- I like your label! The only quilt I ever let out of the house without taking a picture first was the first one I ever sold. The only pic I have of it is a tiny polaroid the lady who ran the show took.
