I love baby quilts. They are such a fun, quick, satisfying finish. This little quilt is for a friend expecting her first baby next month. I fell in love with the Wee Wander fabric, but had no ideas to use it until I found out my friend was having a girl.
I used the Designer Star pattern from May Chappell. I carefully pieced each HST to make sure the directional prints were oriented correctly. It took longer than normal, but was so worth it. This quilt would drive me nuts if all the prints were going crazy directions.
This is my last printed blue chair tag. I recently ordered woven tags and am so excited for them to arrive. Unfortunately, they are coming from Hong Kong which means I'll likely see them sometime in June.
I used smaller cuts of my favorite prints from the line for the backing. The other half of that border print will be showing up in another post in the near future-- as soon as I can get my daughter to model the dress I made for her from it.
I added the skinny 1/2" finished border of pink because I felt the design needed a little something extra. I love how it sets off the star. The final border is about 2 1/2" because that's all I had left of the background print. I love buying fabric, but I love using it up just as much.
The final size on this quilt is about 38" square. It's now with it's new owner. I hope she gets lots of use from it.
