Warning: Photo Heavy Post!!!
I finished this one up awhile ago, but I wanted to wait until the little one received it before blogging about it.
What a special little girl this is, and I’m so so happy that she’s here.
This quilt came together quickly, as I had the blocks finished already. These blocks are part of Amy Gibson’s 2014 Sugar Block of the Month club. I love the fabric and the colors are perfect for a sweet little girl.
I kept it simple with 1″ sashing between the blocks and for the border. For the back, I ordered some yardage of one of the fabrics from the collection. And the binding fabric came from my stash.
I’m most proud of the quilting. I did all the quilting myself on my Juki AND I’ve finally figured out how to machine quilt with Aurifil thread (hint: thread on a cone makes a difference vs thread on a spool).
I made the label using Adobe Illustrator and printed it on iron-on transfer paper on my inkjet printer. I’m not sure why I’ve never done that before.
The fabric is Kate Spain Daydream – warm colorways. The pattern is the 2014 Sugar Block Club blocks.
