Some eight or so years ago, my daughter started this baby quilt for her sister. Her sister has finished creating her family, but it was not complete. This year she decided to send it to our friends in Sweden.
She designed, pieced, and backed it with flannel. Many friends helped with hand-quilting. In the end I finished the hand-quilting and turned the backing over to form the binding.
One of my daughters designed these. My other daughter chose the fabrics. The effect is very bold, especially as we used such large squares. (I would not make another one with such large squares, but it is quite spectacular.)
It was originally one quilt, and it was massive, so I split it into two identical ones.
It was relatively easy to get the quilting stitches where I wanted them with the corners to "eyeball".
As our guests prepared to leave, I realized I had not made their little cutie a dolly quilt, so I had to scurry through my stuff trying to find some bright, suitable, pinks. I would not have chosen this exact combination if I'd had a better choice, but she loved it.
