Little sunkissed diamonds for miss Libby

Pin It I would like to thank you for the motivation.  I finished my niece Libby's quilt yesterday!

Little diamonds for Libby

Fabric: Sunkissed by Moda

Design: me -- inspired by book Jelly Roll Quilts

A few more notes -- strip pieced diamonds made from jelly roll, added mitered frames to the blocks and then sashed in Bella white.  The setting triangles were a pain challenge, but it did all come together finally.

Honestly, I am so much happier with this quilt now than I was.  It didn't feel *perfect* because of the hodge-podgy nature that the setting triangles/sashing were done... but it all worked!  I added the charm squares as a border on the sides, because the quilt was quite tall and skinny without them.

The back:
Libby's diamonds - back

Whatever I had left from my Sunkissed stash (I used pretty much all of it for this quilt).  The label says: "We love you Libby!  Made with love by Aunt Tracey"  And I think I included a date on there.


Measures: pretty big... far bigger than a quilt for an almost four month old need be...so she'll grow in to it.


But I hope this is her reaction when she sees it. :)

Love you Libby!  Can't wait to meet you this summer!


(P.S. Steiger likes it if you don't -- and we really do need to see you soon, because all this kid tells me all day is that "no baby play with Steiger's trains"... "no baby take my milk"... "no baby take Steiger's quilt."  Could you please show him that these baby creatures aren't so bad after all?) ;)

P.P.S.  I'm working on a boy version of this block that will be in the Bake Shop one of these days!
