How lucky to finish the floral baby quilt the night before baby Kate arrived?!
Yes, I was late getting it worked on, but then again,
baby Kate was late too!!
So much cuteness!
I finished this Saturday night and Kate arrive around 8 o'clock Sunday morning!
It must have her name right?!
I decided I wanted as little quilting as I could get away with. I wanted it to drape soft soft soft as much as possible. Stitched in the ditch around the blocks and the purple sashing with a little echo
quilting around the flower shapes.
The border has simple line stitching……perfect.
The flowers are all sewn down using the raw edge method. These edges will fray and ruffle up
with use and hide the stitching. (i hope)
So here you go Kate. Your little quilt all ready for you when you get home. Your mom had a hard time in getting you here and I think maybe you will get home today. I can't wait to give it!!!
Measures 54" x 46".
This pattern is called "French Roses" by Heather French.
Thanks sooooo much to all you gals from my previous post who commented and helped me decide on
the best border fabrics to use!!
A big thank you to Leanne from Kwilt Me Kiwi for sharing with me how she quilted this same pattern for one of her customers. It sure helped me in my quilting decision.
While working on this we found out there is to be ANOTHER little girl
added to OUR family.
So, there may be another one of these quilts in the future!!
