Here's a picture of the completed quilt that I recently made for the newest addition to the family - Margot Florence arrived a few weeks ago, and as usual I've made a quilt for the new arrival. The fabrics are from a charm pack by Minick and Simpson called Prairie Paisley, which have been teamed with a cream floral print for the borders and binding. As well as lots of straight rows of quilting with a walking foot, I've free motion quilted her name on the wider border. The pattern, Pure Baby Boy, is by Teaginny Designs and is a free PDF download from the Moda Bakeshop website. The original pattern uses a Jelly Roll, with strips pieced together for the backing, but I chose a cream butterfly print from my stash. I'm still on track for using fabrics from my stash this year which both Mr F and my bank manager are extremely happy about! I'm sure Margot will have lots of cuddles suggled up under this quilt, stitched especially for her with lots of love from her great-auntie.
