Secret Project - Baby Quilt

I can reveal one of the secret projects I have been working on. I made a baby quilt for my friend Amanda's baby.

It's gonna be a baby girl! She was surprised at the baby shower last Sunday!

This is Amanda and me posing with the baby quilt.


The quilt has all the letters from the alphabet and different animal for each letter.



I first did quilting in a ditch and then decided to do stippling in the border and in the sashing. I was gonna use the purple fabric for main background , but then I decided that I needed something more plain and run to my local quilt shop and picked up pink fusion fabric.

Here is a close up of the first block and my quilting.


Happy Sewing!

Zlaty, the baby quilt is gorgeous. I love how you framed the ABC blocks with the purple squares and the white sashing strips and borders. You did a good job on the quilting too. Just a very cute baby quilt.

Zlaty, that quilt is just beautiful! And just think - it will even be a learning tool in a few years when baby starts learning the alphabet!
