Baby Quilt Top Done

23 comments
I'm super busy the next couple weeks so I'm posting ahead for the next while. I may not respond to all my comments and emails in a timely manner and I apologize for that.
Several months ago my friend Jan brought over a quilt kit for a baby quilt and asked me to sew it up for her. I'm just now getting around to making it (better late than never). The kit was one Jan purchased at the Quilting Cottage, a local shop, several years ago. Ironically it was me that cut the kit and wrote the simple instructions for the patchwork baby quilt for the Quilting Cottage back then. It seems like forever ago. The Quilting Cottage is in American Fork, Utah. No blog or online store for it. But it is a really cozy shop run by my friend Suzanne.
Anyway, I finally stitched up the patchwork blocks and added this center block with a little dress appliqued from my "All Dressed Up" pattern.
The border is a little girl and her frilly party clothes. It is cute fabric, but discontinued I'm sure. This print must be 5 years old or so.
I would normally have machine quilted it myself but unfortunately I don't have the time so she'll have to take it back to Quilting Cottage to have it quilted. The baby quilt really went together fast since it was mostly just simple patchwork. I know Jan is expecting 2 new grandchildren soon so she may need this.

Two ladies in my quilt group just shopped at Quilting Cottage! They really liked it! I've never been there, I guess because they aren't on the quilt shop hop down there. Love your photo of the store, did you notice the yellow in the picture? Pretty!

The quilt is so cute! I love the Quilting Cottage - it's just around the corner a bit from my MIL's house, and right next to the Senior Center where they have their quilt group meetings, so I have been there a lot! I'm sure I will frequent it again this Summer :)

Nanette ~ The baby quilt is so adorable and how lucky that baby is to have a quilt made by you. How precious!
I love the dress block in the middle. It sets things off so nicely.

Oh, that applique block in the center is so charming and makes for a lovely addition to go with that frilly frocks fabric. The colors are so pleasant and sweet!

What darling fabrics. Sometimes the simplist pattern is the best to showcase very cute fabrics.
