We'll be welcoming a new niece to the family soon, so of course she'll be needing a quilt.
I made this pink-and-green quilt using the His and Hers quilt pattern from Moda Bake Shop.
(If you click on the link, you might think I accidentally copied the name from the tutorial. Rest assured, my new niece's name is Claire too.)
The fabrics are from Joel Dewberry's Aviary, Lizzy House's Lizzy Dish, Amy Butler's Midwest Modern, Paula Prass' Summer Soiree, Pat Bravo's Paradise, and Heather Bailey's Pop Garden.
My applique is best enjoyed from a distance. I added a little butterfly, which I got from the Martha Stewart Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts. I quilted in triple diagonal (straightish) lines. I was going to quilt in the opposite direction too, but I decided against it in hopes that the quilt would be softer. It definitely got crinkly in the dryer!
For the backing I used yardage from two prints on the front. The fun chevron stripe binding is from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden.
The finished quilt is about 40 x 40. I hope she likes it!
