This quilt was made especially for Baby Umar, who is the splitting image of his mummy :-)
The centre panel was sewn from one pack of Moda's Make Life charm pack, using this tutorial from the super talented Alison at Cluck Cluck Sew.
All I did was add some coordinating strips on either side of the charms. And voila, perfect baby/toddler quilt size - about 42" square.
The main fabric for the back is something from Moda's The Ladies Stitching Club - so cute with all the multi-coloured buttons - with a centre strip to match the front.
A little close up of the snowball charms:
I actually did something really, really brave and free motion quilted the edges of the snowballs. It was my first time free motion quilting straight lines and I have to say it was kinda a nerve wrecking experience trying to keep all my lines straight and my stitching even. The result is not perfect, but then again, with quilting its never supposed to be, right?
I hope Baby Umar (and his Mum!) likes this little quilt!
Wishing everyone a belated Merry X'mas and Happy happy Holidays!
