Sometimes quilts just happen. Overnight. This was one of those quilts.
I saw a tutorial on the Moda bake shop, by Vanessa from V and Co. As soon as I saw this sweet little quilt, I knew I had to make it. I looked at my fabric stash and pulled out the pinks and yellows from Annette Tatum’s House Collection, and a few other pink and yellow fabrics to go with it. I slashed these fabrics into 1.5 inch strips and chain-pieced this quilt top together in one night.
I had a little more than a yard of Sugar Pop by Liz Scott with these pink branches, and I knew it had to be the back of this quilt.
I wanted to perfect a swirl quilting design, so I used this all over design for this quilt. I think I now have this quilting design down!
I wanted to frame it with a dark, bold, but also coordinating fabric, so I chose Kona Rose. I like to choose solid fabrics as the binding for busy quilt tops, and I think this binding pulled the quilt together.
This baby girl quilt was originally 4o.5 inches square, but after a good washing and drying, it is now 38 inches square.
This quilt reminds me of Bienenstich cake, with a flaky cake and buttery cream, and a hint of raspberry jam. So, I’ll go ahead and call it the Bienenstich (sting of the bee) Baby Girl Quilt. I guess this is what happens if I name quilts when I’m hungry. 🙂 Thank you for visiting!
