Completed: The Baby Quilt of Many Redesigns

The label for this quilt says “Hearts and Stars”, but to me it will always be “The Baby Quilt of Many Redesigns” 🙂 As I was labelling it just now I was thinking back over all the ideas I had for this quilt and I remembered that originally I was going to make a Sunbonnet Sue quilt if the wee one had been a girl. I don’t think I could have made anything more different if I’d tried!

I did fairly minimal quilting – just outlined the solid squares. It’s backed with one of the Moda Love U fabrics and bound in a cute alphabet and spotty blue fabric. Oh and the dark blue solid was once a pillowcase before I needed an emergency injection of fabric!

I couldn’t finish without an attempt at an arty photo! I’ve thought my photos are a bit dull so have be trying to take more interesting ones. I like the way this one looks under the top layer of the quilt to the backing fabric!

    This quilt may be redesigned but you did a great job. I was thinking of doing something like that for the front of the quilt for my friends grandson. This looks so good. I love the back.

    What a perfect little baby quilt! Simple, sweet, and super snuggly. 🙂

    Good for you on trying some fresh new photo perspectives. I really need to try and get out of my quilt photo rut.

    Ahhh, it is so perfect. The design is modern, yet baby friendly. The colors are really great, especially the pop of red on the backer. Very successful job!!
