My first finish of the year is this beautiful baby quilt. At the end of last year I learned that some friends of mine were expecting their third baby. I have made quilts for their first two kids, so naturally I had to make another one for their latest.
I was lucky enough to win this Joyful Meadows pattern by Happy Cloud Creations at the right time I was searching for a pattern. The pattern comes in five different sizes, from Baby to King. I made the baby size of 48" x 48".
The finished quilt was taken out in the forest for a photo shoot. I we were lucky that sun gave us beautiful photo light after the snow showers.
I used my (almost never ending) stash of Birchtree Lane fabrics from Connecting Threads for this quilt, with solid white for background. These are the prints I chose, the feather print is my absolute favorite.
The pattern is very well written, and the quilt top came together quickly .
I quilted it on my domestic machine with loops and swirls in white thread. The quilt got a great texture. The pine was a good quilt holder.
My first finish for the year looks good in the winter snow.
Keep on quilting!
