Another quilt for Joey! (Here's the first.) I wanted him to have a proper baby-sized quilt, and so, at about 35 weeks pregnant, I started on this one. It's a Swirling Medallion quilt from the book Quilting Modern.
The funny thing is, the piecing on this is a hot. mess. I absolutely cannot figure out what happened, but all of the white pieces are somehow the wrong size. So basically none of the points match up and it took a lot of trimming on the edgs to even it out. I blame pregnancy brain, and I don't care. Most of the craziness is in the all-white section, where you can hardly see it, and to me, it's a funny part of the story of this quilt.
I hand-quilted this one, and I used a super-soft drapey batting that is amazing. Have you guys ever used Quilter's Dream? I had only heard of it and decided my baby's quilt was worth splurging on, and yo it was worth it. Seriously. I mean, I can't afford to put it in every quilt I make, but I'm glad I used it in this one.
Of course I didn't finish it before Joey was born, but I think I finished it before he was six months old, so as far as baby quilts go that's not too shabby. Plus, when he was six months old he was still sleeping in a little zip-on blanket and not under a quilt, so he never even knew.
