Baby Bloomers

Ok, not actual baby bloomers - but a baby girl quilt top made with Woodland Bloom. I worked on it last night and finished this morning. I'm in love with it.... I love making girl things..


I made all this by just using 15 jelly roll strips (and white of course). I sewed them in groups of 3 strips. Then cut them into 5 1/2 inch blocks. Then stacked em.



I think this is my favorite line from Lila Tueller.. so far anyway.

Tonight I plan to sandwich and quilt it. My backing fabric is a flannel print from Woodland Bloom. I love flannel backings! I'm not sure how I should quilt it - I really love the look of all over stippling... what do you think? Should I go all over? Or should I opt for a more subtle in the ditch?

Soooo pretty! That really is a beautiful line of fabric.

Can't wait to see it quilted - I'm a big fan of stippling too, although I wish I would be inspired to try something else.

I'd go for the stippling . . . very nice job.

I agree with the stippling. It will look great, especially on the white. Nice quilt, Heidi!

Love the look of stippling especially after it is washed...crinkle and soft with the lovely flannel backing.....it will so snuggly.

Happy Sewing

I love it! Yeah stippling would be good. Or I like swirlys and daisies.

Dawn said...

Heidi, looks great! I agree with Carol...stippling would be nice but swirls and daisies would be great! Have fun!

Since you asked, I would stitch in the ditch on the prints, and a design or stippling on the white;-)

Blessings,
Jilly

Great colours and a very good idea for a Jelly Roll,I must say.
Agree with Jilly,in the ditch and a lovely stippling pattern on the white.

Such a pretty quilt, just lovely. Stippling all over would make it look very soft.
