A bit of something completed

Posted by Strlady at 9:27 AM
Even though I have been busy at work I did make some time to make a baby quilt for my cousin that is expected to pop this month. She is actually a second cousin, being the only daughter of my first cousin. Confused? My extended family is quite huge. Anyway... I was a bit excited that I was able to complete this top.


I selected Camille Roskelley's new pattern called Coming Soon...
and combined it with the florals of Momo's Freebird line.


The pattern came together like a dream. Very easy and with quick results.


Then it was just a matter of finding the right placement for the colors.


I did add a slightly larger border...


And failed to take that into account when I bought the backing for the quilt, which, in turn, caused my backing to fall a bit short of the mark. I had to be a little creative and make it a tad larger. I don't have a picture of it but I'll show it to you all when I get it back from Mary. Mary from over at Quilt Hollow agreed to quilt it for me so it would arrive at its destination in time to welcome it's new owner to the world.

I'm so happy I did something in July and I hope that this month will be more productive..

Congratulations on getting something done for the month of July, and what an adorable something it is.

I like the MOMO's fabric for this pattern, it looks fresh, clean and happy, not over the top babyish, which I think is a good thing!

That is a really cute pattern. That fabric was great to use with it... a perfect baby blanket! I can't wait to see it quilted by Mary- she's amazing!
