Bright Baby Quilt

Just when I finish one baby quilt, someone else has a baby and I have to start all over again. My cousin had a beautiful baby girl, Teagan Lily, and I had the pleasure of picking out bright flannels to make a quilt for her homecoming.

I chose Valori Wells Urban flannel for the backing, and used Amy Butler software for inspiration (I deviated a bit with size and block dimension). Here is the top design, viewed from the wrong side:

I layered the top, batting and backing and quilted in the ditch through all layers on my Bernina Artista 730E:

Then I made my own binding from the backing fabric and attached it to the quilt:

Of course I had to make a quilt label, using a design and built-in lettering from the Janome Memory Craft 11000 Special Edition machine:

I hand stitched the label to the quilt back along the lower-left corner:

Here is the finished front and back of Teagan’s quilt:

I hope she likes it! Stay tuned to see a photo of the little cutie enjoying her quilt.
