Aerial Grove Baby Quilt


For a fun baby quilt, I made an Aerial Grove quilt.  Pattern by Carolyn Friedlander.  My blogs were double-plus wonky, and I used my sew-and-turn applique method rather than needle-turn.  I hand appliqued the blobs onto the patchwork strips. IMG_3507_2

My quilting was also inspired by Carolyn, but I let my lines spazz-out.   I also only made the colorful “grove” – not the larger neutral border that is featured in the pattern.  A baby doesn’t need that much white space! IMG_3512_2

These pictures were taken a couple weeks ago, during another 20 degree cold-snap here in Michigan.  Apologies for the grainy texture and color-weirdness.

    Hello jenna!
    Are you able to please share how to make these little improv circles please? I’d love to give them a go but not sure where to start? As in, do I just grab a scrap, fold it into 4 and cut into a circle? Any advice much appreciated! Thank you!
