Baby Girl Flower Applique Quilt

My first custom order is finished!  It's based on this miniature quilt.  I used the flower templates but enlarged them to make it baby sized.  It is beautiful - I'll bombard you with an abundance of pictures!

Lots and lots of blanket stitch - done by machine
Two birds having a conversation
I free motioned the details on the butterflies and birds
I first quilted around everything to make it pop and then quilted the whole background with a small loopy meander
Fun striped binding
And the soft flannel back with a bit of piecing
I did a double layer of the white (not flannel) so that you can't see through.
So long, beautiful, spring, baby girl, quilt!  I hope you're loved in your new home - it's hard to give you up!

Linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts

  7. This is just lovely and such a pretty quilt that says Spring is Here. Great quilting, and love the fabrics you selected. I also like your striped binding that gives a nice pop, but not too loud.
