A Birthday Quilt

Sunday, August 30, 2009

I spent the better part of yesterday sewing a beautiful quilt for baby Isabel’s first birthday.

Colorful and full of whimsy, I kept the project simple by machine stitching precut 2.5” x 40” strips of fabric together.

The quilt is crafted from my all time favorite Wonderland fabrics and backed in a vintage inspired flannel which her father selected.

For added interest, I finished the top with faux stippling. I was able to quickly accomplish the stippling effect by utilizing a decorative scallop stitch and meandering a long and winding trail across the quilt.

I hope Isabel will enjoy the quilt for years to come!
