March 18th, 2017 is
Worldwide Quilting Day,
so it is the perfect time to share a
cozy flannelette quilt I made
for my granddaughter, who
was born this past November.
I had a variety of fabrics in my stash,
so used them for this snuggly quilt.
My inspiration came from the patterned fabric -
pink, yellow, blue and glittery white hearts
printed onto a light blue background.
I chose white, pink and yellow fabrics to
coordinate with the print.The white squares
were machine appliqued with a pink heart
using a blanket stitch.
The back of the quilt was created by piecing
yellow strips of fabric on either side of a pink
flannelette panel. I machine quilted all the
layers together by stitching on either side
of the seamed squares.
Yellow and pink borders were added to the
front of the quilt before machine quilting.
A yellow binding was added to the edges
of the finished quilt.
Wishing you a warm and cozy week-end!
Thanks for visiting today.
