Because baby quilts are so small, I can quilt two of them easily in an afternoon. So immediately after finishing the quilting on Brigantine Baby, I loaded up another quilt and got stitching. If you follow our facebook page, you would have seen this top already. If not, here it is all quilted.
It’s a pattern I’ve done before with small variations (here and here). It’s made with a charm pack so it sews up easily in an afternoon. When I first finished the top, I was worried it was a little too busy, but now that I see it quilted, it’s just perfect.
I think that wide white border is perfect to balance all those fun farm prints.
The centre of each star has animal sounds all over it – it was a fat eight Mom gave me from her stash when I showed her the charm pack. We both agreed it needed to be used with it. (Although I did have to keep checking to see that that “peep” wasn’t really “poop”. My eyes kept telling me otherwise.
The back of this one isn’t flannel, but it’s down-right adorable. It was another remnant bin find. I bought it ages ago with no specific plans for it. Obviously it was waiting for this quilt! Which is now available in the shop!

That quilt is adorable. The fabrics are perfect for each other. And I was seeing peep until you said poop and now that’s all I see! 🙂
Great job and wonderful finish.
You always find the perfect backing!!! Your themed quilts are so much fun.
Love the recent dyeing binge and LOVE this quilt!
That is gorgeous, and you under-rate your talent. Nothing about sewing or quilting is easy for me!
I especially like the star points extending into the border!!! Great finish!
I love the little black pokey bits along the edge. Very cute.
Love love love the farms! Wonderful
