new quilting project

I recently started a new hand quilting project for baby #2, due at the end of the year. I grabbed this white-on-white striped voile from Mood Fabrics, and paired it with some fluffy striped minky fabric from JoAnn’s to make up a baby quilt that features the baby’s first and middle name, surrounded by swirls, all hand-quilted. If you are wondering, the baby is not named “iiiiii” – the image above is photoshopped! For baby #1, we did a little bit of a jumble and released letters one at a time, and we are planning on doing the same thing this time. Baby #2 has at least one i in her first or middle name.
