So, I have my tension problems fixed (crossing fingers here), and I got started with a quilt for my dear friend Michelle.
Her oldest daughter is having a baby (like, this week maybe!), and she sewed up the most adorable baby boy quilt I've ever seen!
Isn't it that just the most darling thing, ever? She appliqued all the planets and words and monster on the pieced background. My kids couldn't stop drooling over it, and my little boy kept trying to steal it!
I quilted a different pattern in each different fabric. I think the quilting turned out really nice! I especially love the swirls in the blue, and the design in the yellow polka dot above.
I used a 40 wt polyester thread that is so soft. It left the quilt just as soft as it was before it was quilted.
I did pebbling in all the other polka-dot fabrics.
I love the swirls!
She chose minky for the back. I love looking at the back! It's so fun to look at, and shows the quilting a little better.
My daughter Ari helped me to photograph it. Don't you love her snow boots in the middle of summer?
Michelle bound it and sent me a couple of pictures so I could show it all finished. I think the green finishes it off perfectly!
She surprised her daughter with it at her baby shower!
What a cute mommy! We're so excited for her to have her baby!!
Thanks for letting me quilt this for you Michelle! It was so much fun!
