Another baby, another tied quilt! I swear I have more friends pregnant right now than not. I love it. Yay for more babies!
I made this quilt for a friend’s little girl born last month. I used fabric designed by Eliza of if she sleeps… that’s sold on Spoonflower. If you’ve never checked out Spoonflower, you should. It’s pretty cool. You can upload your own design or pick from the millions designed by other people. You can then have it printed on your choice of 10 different types of fabric, wallpaper (it’s removable, great for renters!), gift wrap, or decals. I had these 3 navy and white designs printed on cotton voile, which is really thin and extremely soft. Perfect for a baby growing up in the Texas heat. For the edge of the quilt, rather than using ric rac or pom pom trim like I did for my previous tied quilts, I used a double fold binding method. It takes a little more time, but is easy enough and looks really nice. There is a great tutorial here. I’m happy with the way it turned out. Hopefully it will make tummy time for that sweet gal a little less painful!
