I wanted to wait and take pictures of this quilt in the sun when it came up tomorrow morning.. but I just couldn't wait to share it.
The quilt was requested by a friend who is giving it to her niece at a baby shower soon. I loosely used this pattern from the Moda Bake Shop. The "recipe" on the Moda Bake Shop actually makes a large quilt - so I basically only did half of it.
I used the fabric line "Hushabye" by Tula Pink. Instead of using a jelly roll of fabric I used a charm pack and some fat quarters. And my white was not a jelly roll either.. I cut it myself from yardage. Basically - I did it all the hard way. But that's what I had to work with. I didn't want to have go out and buy more fabric.
The finished size is 42 x 54 (before I washed it) which is big for a baby quilt. I didn't do all the borders from the original recipe because that would have made it 48 x 60.
I personalized it with the baby's name.. Emma Rose. I will be delivering it in the morning and can't wait to see what she thinks!
It turned out so adorable don't you think?
