7 :: farm animal quilt

It has been a long time in the making, but last week I finally got to give my farm animal baby quilt to my friends' dear little girl (she's only 6 months - so that's not too bad, right?!)



The pattern is the Country Time quilt, from Alicia Paulson's Embroidery Companion. I did swap out two of the animals - I popped in a cat and a dog in place of the pattern's sheep and rooster.



The print blocks are all cottons from my stash, and I used bamboo batting. I did some hand quilting on it - there are 6 blocks that are quilted with an embroidery floss running stitch around the edge.



I think it turned out pretty cute!
The embroidery patterns were really fun to stitch up, and it is always nice to play with pretty fabrics from the stash!

I really hope little miss will love it as much as I loved putting it together for her!

  2. Better late...than not at all. At 6 months old I'm sure baby is blissfully unaware!
