I love making baby quilts, they're the perfect size!
One of my favorite parts of making a quilt, is choosing the fabric :)
Alpha bittys making finding pieces a breeze!
A few hours of cutting and sewing, and Hazel the Hedgehog (designed by Elizabeth Hartman) has come to life.
Isn't she cute?
I machine quilted and bound her, and hung her outside for a photo.
Aren't the fresh green leaves and blossoms beautiful?
There was a really perfumed aroma too.
This is the back of the quilt, it's a soft minky.
I didn't put any batting in the quilt, it's really light.
I made 4 burp pads to match, about 9" X 14".
The pink and gray animal print is what I used for the binding.
I backed the burp pads with the same minky I used for the quilt back.
The print looks like little dandelions that you blow in the wind.
I like to roll up the burp pads and tie them with a ribbon.
Since the quilt was lightweight, I was able to tie it up also.
The quilt is on its way to a special baby girl :)
My next baby quilt will be "Fancy Forest" by Elizabeth Hartman, in blues.
