This is another baby quilt that I madebased on the "Stacked Coins" pattern. This one was made with a fab range of fabrics called "Darla" by Tanya Whelan, and was very retro looking. As you can see, I added a little bit of stitchery to this quilt too. "We made a wish and you came true!" - and once again this stitchery quote was from the book "A Winsome Baby" by Nancy Halvorsen, and this time has been stitched with 2 strands of DMC thread. This was eventually quilted very simply "stitch-in-the-ditch" with white Mettler quilting thread, then I quilted some stright lines on the border.....
...this picture shows you the back of the quilt - this aqua floral fabric was from the same range, "Darla" and the large scale pattern suited this project perfectly. And here it is completed! This was a gift for a colleague and his wife a couple years ago, who had a baby girl called Lily. I wonder if she's still having lots of cuddles with it??
