I made this quilt for Melissa and her sweet baby girl, Truly.
I used the Proverbial Quilt pattern by Denyse Schmidt. This is the third time I have used this for a baby quilt and I love how it comes together quickly and is still interesting to make. For the fabrics I used Kona Snow and three different Liberty of London prints from my stash (one for the letters, one for the back, one for the binding). I wanted something girly, but not too pink or too cutesy and I really think the Liberty does the trick. It is also so super soft which is wonderful when sewing for baby. I quilted it myself with a very loose figure-eight style of loops. This was my first time quilting a pattern like this and I like how it came out.
I was incredibly happy almost every minute spent working on this. It was the most fun I've had sewing in a long time. It may have something do with the materials or the pattern. Heck, it could even be that I am just feeling plain old creative these days. Imagine that! Regardless of why, I'd like to think that the fun is infectious and that my smiles traveled across the country, wrapped up with the quilt to bless the sweet baby girl and her family. I am thrilled for them.
Welcome to the world, Truly.
