I’ve had this one finished for a few weeks but with the travelling and rainy weather it took me a while to get around to photographing it. (You can scroll down to the bottom to get the PDF download for this pattern.)
This is an easy-peasy disappearing nine patch, nothing earth-changing, just a nice, bright quilt/playmat for a gorgeous spring baby.
For the back I went with a simple stripe design, and also appliquéd the little miss’ name on in white.
I used the alphabet from Ros’ Abracadabra pattern which I bought a while ago now.
I was very proud that I remembered to trace the letters back-to-front. Normally I forget that sort of thing.
Quilting was a grid style, either side of the 9 patch seams. Then I went back and filled in some areas along each edge with denser quilting.
The binding is a turquoise material which I can’t for the life of me find the name of. I don’t know what I did with the selvedge either. I swear I lose 5% brain capacity with every pregnancy.
The baby has a big sister so I thought I’d make a little something just for her. This little case is based on a tutorial I found on Noodlehead’s website. I just adjusted the size to suit the zipper I had on hand and then added a bit of embellishment.
I like that it’s made from fabrics in the baby’s quilt. I filled it with some hair clips and hair bands to complete the gift.
I’m looking forward to having some more cuddles with this baby when I drop these off. Can never have too many baby cuddles!
