I had made the top but was waiting for baby to be born and named so I could applique her name on the front and quilt it. Baby Ebony was born on 5th January and I worked hard on the quilt, finishing it on Thursday evening ready to hand over to Ebony's Aunty Jo who had asked me to make it. I did that yesterday and was thrilled at Jo's utter delight when she unfolded the quilt. It's odd how nervous I am when I make a quilt to order - I'm always unsure of my colour and fabric choices when I am trying to follow the customer's requirements. Jo had asked for grey to be included and for it not to be "too pink and girly". I was pleased with the finished quilt and just hoped Jo would be too. Icing on the cake for me when I saw her obvious delight. Phew!!
Here it is:
Ebony's Quilt entitled ( at Jo's request) "Miracle".
And close ups of the appliqued name panel:
I used the grey border fabric for the backing and binding too.
I hadn't made Tumblers before and really loved them and will make baby quilts with them again. I liked hand quilting with Perle around the inside of each Tumbler.
The quilt finished at 38" x32".
