I finished the quilting and binding on the new nursery quilt. I have a quilt on Elias’ bedroom wall and I really like the warmth and softness it brings to the room, so I decided to do one for the new baby as well.
I used some vintage looking fabric I had in my stash. Originally I wanted the red polka dot as the center star and the green duck print as the outer border, but I was short on the duck fabric so I had to work with what I had.
Have I told you Elias is the best quilting support ever?! Every time I bring out a quilt he acts like it is the most exciting event. When I showed him this quilt, he pointed at the center, smiled, and said “duck!” He knows the way to my heart!
The pattern is one I made up. I won’t confess to you how long it took me to figure out the center star. 🙂 I blame it on my pregnancy brain. For the quilting I did a simple cross-hatch to add to the simplicity of it. I also rounded the corners to make it really old school. To hang it I made a trip to the backyard hedge and cut myself a straight looking stick. Cheap and handy.
It’s a cuddly quilt that will warm the room for a bit and then eventually will be snuggled by a little person.
