Making a baby girl quilt


Kathleen and I usually only piece quilts for ourselves or as gifts, but every once in a while we help out our friends. LuAnn bought this darling pink and brown fabric to make a quilt for her new granddaughter.
After buying it she just didn't know what to do with it, so she gave it to Kathleen and asked that she help put the quilt together. So, being crazy like we are, we just couldn't sew the blocks together, we had to add some applique, because you know that we love applique! :)
So we cut up the fabric into strips, added some white, pink, brown and applique and this is what we came up with.
I think it turned out pretty dang cute.
I machine quilted it for her, the quilt is made from flannels and the backing is minky so it has a lot of fun texture.

Applique embroidery pattern is from Planetapplique

  4. Adorable. Can I ask you how you sew on your minky without it stretching? It seems like when I am finished - it sags a bit in the back...
