A finish-Sweet Darling baby quilt

Last Monday, I put the binding on my Sweet Darling baby quilt, washed it, packed it nicely and gifted it to my friend who recently had a baby girl. 
Here are some "not great" photos. Unfortunately it was a usual, super windy Canberra autumn day and I had to take indoor photos again. 
I normally don't make gender specific quilts but with these fabrics, I couldn't imagine anything but a girly quilt. 
I really like the matching pillow. 
This is the first time that I used a decorative stitch for quilting. I first tried it on the pillow and liked the effect. I quilted the quilt in straight lines with the same stitch and framed the solid squares. It is not very visible on the quilt unless you look at it very closely. The back of the quilt shows it very well.
My friend loved the quilt and the pillow very much which made me very very happy. I forgot to take the photos of her gorgeous girl on the quilt because of so much excitement and squealing at that moment!!  
Quilty details:
Quilt top: Fancy Free layer cake-Riley Blake 
Backing: Quilters' deluxe homespun
Binding: Fancy Free teal stripe
Size: 37.5 inches by 37.5 inches unwashed

Hope you liked the pair too!

Till next time,


  1. What a beautiful finish and gift! I really like the decorative stitch and how it pops on the backing. :)

  2. Awwwwwwwwwwww that is such a happy fun quilt - I love the decorative quilting - I have that stitch on my machine :) I use it a lot because it goes quickly (you know how some dec stitches are soooooooooo slow to stitch out) and it looks pretty, plus it's forgiving if you don't get the stitching exactly in the ditch (and I don't, lol) :) The matching pillow is the perfect go-with :)

  3. Very good post. I'm facing some of these issues as well..
