I have been wanting to make this quilt for some time now.
I finally have a reason to make it, YAY!
My daughter's best friend is expecting twin girls and I need to make 2 quilts.
I decided I would make them different but use the same fabrics.
I am using the Neverland line from Riley Blake.
The colors are very soft and beautiful.
I matched a few other plainer fabrics to this and got what I needed to make 2 baby quilts.
The very first pattern I thought of is the Meadowland pattern by Then Came June.
As it turns out it was a really easy pattern to follow and
comes together pretty quickly once you figure it out.
I have directional fabrics in this line so the flying geese were a bit of a challenge but I got there.
If you want to make a Meadowland quilt too you can find the pattern right here.
I will show you my blocks so far.
I have all 12 finished for the quilt but have not had time to assemble it yet.
I didn't have a mosaic maker that would do 12 but here are the first 9 all together.
There is no sashing in this quilt.
I love how this looks.
I bought a Tinkerbell fabric in gray for the backing.
I don't have it yet but will show you once I do.
I will show you the other one once I make some more progress on it.
I am using the Starbreak pattern from the Fort Worth Fabric Studio.
If you want to make one you can find the free pattern here.
I began with a FQB and a few "companion" fabrics and
had more than enough to make BOTH baby quilts!
I do have the stars from the Starbreak pattern done.
I found the CUTEST coloring book page to use for the labels!
I am working on the embroidery for them so will show you when they are both finished.
I am off to a local quilt retreat today and will be back home on Sunday.
I am hoping to have 4 count them 4 baby quilt tops finished by the time I get home!!
I like to sew the label into the back rathe than sew it on after I get the quilt back from the quilter.
That means I have to wait for the baby to be born to add the name and DOB.
I try to embroider as much as I can on the labels.
If it is just words that is a bit more difficult.
I can usually get a all word one done in a couple of nights though.
It just means the baby won't get the quilt right away, but I am so much happier with the look.
Have a great weekend and stay tuned.
I will be posting on Instagram as I work this weekend.
