Little Folks Quilt II

This week I am working on a custom quilt; a baby quilt very much in the spirit of the Little Folks Quilt made earlier this year (see here), albeit a miniature version.


The quilt top is pieced with all fabrics from the Little Folks collection by Anna Maria Horner and Dobby Dots from the Pastry line.  The baby quilt top is finished, the backing prepared, the quilt sandwich basted and I have started quilting - a familiar process.


Again, I wish I could convey in a picture how deliciously soft this quilt top is, and how similarly beautiful  the voile fabrics are to work with.  There could not possibly be a more perfect fabric for babies.


Today I am going to spend some time adding machine and hand quilting detail to this baby quilt, the combination of these two together with  the use of brightly colored threads will add  much detail to the quilt.

Happy Stitching!

  3. I agree - that fabric is heavenly. I've used some in my Fairytale Patchwork quilt in progress (combined with the Far Far Away line) and it's just amazing. I do find it a tad more difficult to work with, but SO worth it!

    As usually, your color combination just glows. How nice to do this simpler piecing work after you last project, I'm sure!

  4. Such a pretty quilt! What kind of thread are you using? Looks like crochet cotton or perle cotton.

    Thanks,
