This quilt is made of mostly commercial cottons. I designed the pattern to make it appear as if the fabrics are woven together. I think this effect may have been more evident if the quilt would have been larger. This quilt only measures 43" x 33" point to point.
I wanted it to be quilted quite densely and was doing it in free motion but just going up and down in a wavy pattern got boring so I decided to quilt in secret messages to the baby.
If you look closely at this image, you can make out some of my messages;
'A heart filled with love'
I like the idea that she may be able to make these discoveries over the years with her parents as they tuck her into bed at night. I also love the combination of all these pinks and orange. Not an obvious colour combination but I think it is fun for a baby.
I still have pink strips left over, just in case......
