Our second embroidered baby quilt is coming along! The squares are connected and the front is put together. This is the quilt for a little girl, made out of a variety of colored flannel, predominantly pink. The boy’s quilt has been finished for a while, and we will be raffling both soon pretty soon! I thought I’d share some photos of the front of the pink quilt as it goes together.
The green may seem a little odd, but the border of the quilt will be made from a yellow flannel with little green, purple, and pink dots in it. In two corners of the border, the squares will be arranged to form a kind of “bow” motif, with the “ribbons” trailing up the edges. The “bow” parts of the border squares will be a purple flannel with tiny white polka dots. So in all, the quilt will end up rather colorful! I can’t wait to see the finished project!
In the meantime, here’s the front so far:
When the quilt is completed, I’ll have to take photos in good lighting – outside, probably!
I’ve already posted a couple photos of the completed Sunbonnet Garden Girl, along with a few close-ups of her, so here are a few others that are used in the quilt, for your perusal.
This little white lamb with the blue butterfly is embroidered mostly with perle cotton #5.
Here’s a little embroidered kitten, frustrated by a frog!
This embroidered bird sitting on an embroidered water fountain is really darling! I love the flowers and the colors!
The mouse under the flower umbrella is cute, too. It’s stitched entirely in stem stitch, using two strands of DMC cotton.
This little “fishing angel” is so sweet! The original design has two facing angels in it, but to fit in the square, we cut the design in half, to good effect, I think!
I’ve already mentioned the embroidered butterfly once, when talking about seed stitch, but here’s a shot of the completed square.
I love this little teddy bear – the eyes crack me up for some reason!
So there you have some close ups on the baby girl quilt. Marlene is doing a great job putting it together, and I’ll let you see the finished project soon!
By the way, all the stitching was done by members of the Assumption Embroidery Guild. Most of the gals are beginners, and I think they did a marvelous job!
