Just a quick post to show this baby quilt I made for a friend.
I framed a solid square with fun prints – most of them from Made By Rae’s line Lotus Pond. Three sides but leaving a little corner stone allowed for me to embrace my crippling neuroses and do some pattern matching.
Cute little quilted windows.
See the little snail HSTs in the sashing? I like ’em.
It was almost a shame to fold this adorable Japanese fabric into binding.

And a happy little embroidered label. I made this circle using my sew-an-turn applique method.

They said, “What are you thinking??” They said, “What’s this from – a muumuu?” and I said, “I know- this fabric is ugly… but I love it.”
Like the suiting fabric from my Peplum Dress, this material was found in my husband’s grandfather’s attic. I think it’s like FROM the 70s. It’s a cotton, as far as I can tell. And man – it’s brilliant. The gold leafing actually has a bit of shine to it… amazing.
I used this tutorial from The Big Oak Tree as a launching point (I ended up cutting the rectangular pieces into A-line shapes, and I didn’t make a bow).
