Grace’s Quilt July 18, 2011 – Posted in: baby, quilts, sewing

TA DA!!!! I started Grace’s baby quilt a few weeks before she was born (hence the bright, but neutral colors). I was inspired by Anita’s beautiful quilt HERE, but since I don’t like to do sashing, I decided to use this Moda Bakeshop pattern, except I cut my own squares instead of using a charm pack.
They are both sooooo cute!!!
See that red pinwheel? Those are what I was cutting when I cut my fingertip with the rotary cutter. 🙁 I hand quilted this, of course. Just oulined the white triangles in the pinwheels and around the border.

When I saw that the 3D triangles were called prairie points I had to try them. Anything with the word “prairie” just sounds adorable and makes me think of Laura Ingalls!

But frankly, they were a pain. I couldn’t get the spacing right and the more I tried to fix them, the worse it got. AND I couldn’t hand quilt along this edge (which I thought it needed to keep them in place) so I had to stab stitch one stitch at a time the whole way around.
But it is still an awesome pattern and I love it!!!
Link Parties are found at the top of my blog and, if I get a minute here and there, I might be found linking up at some of those.
