I’m finally getting around to posting the photos of my latest quilt! I made this for a special little one – the daughter of one of my West Point roommates. They live about an hour away in Colorado Springs, and I was able to visit with them and hand it off in person. Baby Joanna is beautiful and I’m so happy she’s here!
This is my third baby girl quilt of 2015, and my fourth (I think??) quilt finish of the year. Wow. I think that’s a record for me.
I bought two jelly rolls – Clementine by Heather Baily and Kona Blushing Bouquet – back in June during Pink Door Fabric‘s Open House. Honestly, I didn’t have any sewing motivation (or patience) for anything super complex so I settled on simple chevrons. I loosely followed this tutorial posted on Kitchen Table Quilting. The top came together super super quick.
Pin basting is always more fun with beer. The Liliko’i Kepolo is from one of our favorite Boulder breweries, Avery. We’d had it in their tasting room, but didn’t think they sold it for take home. JJ spotted it at our neighborhood corner store/pharmacy and brought some home.
I opted for some simple loopy quilting to keep it all together. The binding are just some strips from the Kona jelly roll. I machine-stitched it all the way around. It turned out better than my last few attempts! My quilt labels are the same, just change the names and dates.
