Of the 3 baby quilts that I did this month, I think this one is my favorite. And since it was for a quilter, I really wanted to have some fun with the quilting.
So I decided to do the quilt as a quilting sampler. Each color would get a different treatment.
Purple got some paisley.
Piano keys on the blue.
A little McTavishing in the green.
No sampler quilt would be complete with out some feathers!!!! (I LOVE feathers! But, you already knew that!)
Orange pebbles. You know, just because. And because it matched the fabric so well.
Diamond cross hatching on the red. I used the dots to measure them out.
I also quilted the dots the same way. You can see all the wonderful texture on the back of the quilt. Now that my quilting is getting better I just love solid backs!
But the front just steals the show. This may, just may, be my favorite quilt ever. The binding was even done rainbow. About 12″ pieces of each of the 6 colors.
Unfortunately, the recipient loves it. Which means she’ll be keeping it rather than sending it back to me. Maybe I’ll just have to do it again in king size!!!
