I have a brand new niece!
This occasion calls for a brand new baby quilt, of course.
This quilt is a scrappy Trip Around the World, which I’ve been pinning for *ever* on Pinterest.
The backing is an old flannelette baby sheet of Evie’s that just matched so perfectly!
Isn’t the texture delicious?
The quilting consists of cheerful daisy motifs that pop up out of their spiral centres. I stippled the background to emphasise the flowers, and really exercised my new Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) skills.
I’m delighted with this quilt! Not bad for my first real FMQ on a proper sized quilt, huh?
I think it is serendipitous that my niece is called “Summer” — this quilt is just so perfect!
Happy Birthday, baby girl. May your future be a riot of colour and fun!
