Fast forward five years and Elizabeth had a beautiful baby boy! Yeah, I could use the remaining fabric from the wedding quilt to make a baby quilt! And here it is:
A view of the back:
Freshly quilted when the light was just right:
Some details in that great light:
Continuous curves in the border squares:
“Egg and Dart” quilting motif on the inner border and “curved cross hatching” in the side setting triangles:
“Curved cross hatching” in the central setting squares:
“Continuous curve quilting in the “nine patch” blocks”
The back, once again in that great light:
Machine applied binding from the front:
And the back:
Still have fabric left? Make a giant, all-purpose tote!
With lots of pockets:
And a great big button decorating the tab closure:
And here is the best part of “the rest of the story!”
Awesome little guy with a great quilt!!!
I love the idea of saving fabric for a possible future baby and making it to match a wedding quilt! Something to remember!
