I have a group of moms I chat with; all our babes were born in the same month. We decided to do a little birthday exchange, and Lainey was Steiger's partner.
I mentioned it back here, and now, it's all done! I can't wait to see pictures of Lainey and her quilt, but here are some I shot before I mailed it away Monday.
It's a simple nine-patch, done in Aviary by 3 Sisters, for Moda. The solid is Moda Bella fig-tree cream.
I quilted it using simple straight lines, at a 45 degree angle.
I think she's going to LOVE it.
The back is solid, and very simple, so I decided to add a little personal touch. They call her "Lainey-bug."
The only trouble is that I didn't decide to add the lady-bug until after it had been basted, and quilting had commenced. Because I wanted to make sure it was secure, I stitched around it, quilting one random circle on to the front. I hope she doesn't mind... I figured her mama would think it was worth it, to get the lady-bug on there good and stuck!
There's not a lot of contrast, but the soft florals suit her perfectly, I think.
Meanwhile, I've been cleaning and re-organizing the house. After all this time, Steiger finally decided to like his car-seat.
One final word --
Jandi, over at Jandi in Stitches is having a Fruitcake Giveaway!
I ♥ Fruitcake. Like I told you about here.
