This is a baby quilt made from the simple desire to sew ! The design is my own, just something to showcase the solid-colored fabrics, picking up the ones that are featured in the dandelion print. The finished quilt measures 36 inches square.
The batting is Hobbs' Heirloom Premium 80% cotton/20% polyester.
I used Connecting Threads solid strips and a Valori Wells dandelion print for the top of the quilt.
I regret to say that I don't know the maker of the backing fabric, but I am thankful to my friend, JoAnn, in Oklahoma, for continuing to send me her scraps (big scraps!)
I pieced a few of the gradating solids from the front of the quilt into the back, since I needed to piece it anyway.
I decided to hand-quilt this one since it would show up so nicely against the solid fabrics.
I love how the light coming in from the window shows all of the contours of the quilting lines.
UPDATE: The quilt has been gifted to a beautiful young woman who is believing God for a baby girl, and has already named her, Abigale Marie Hope ! God IS hope, isn't he..........praise God for all our babies, no matter how old they are, or how long we have to wait ! God is faithful........why can't we be FULL of FAITH?
