I want spring already! But as a tide-me-over until real flowers start blooming, I made this bright baby quilt last week for a friend's new little girl. After I had purchased the fabrics, she made a passing remark about not being fond of pink nursery decor... so I added just a bit more of the teal zigzag, and crossed my fingers that she wouldn't mind some pink, with a bunch of other colors, too!
I added a few applique flowers for a little focal point. And I've learned a valuable lesson for the future about using interfacing under light fabrics - I wish the yellow flower popped a bit more, but the teal ended up showing through a tad.
I backed and bound it in the grey floral hexie, and added a corner label. I really want to get little BBD tags made up to sew into the binding of my quilts, but I haven't decided if they should just be my logo or washing tips or what. If you have a small pre-printed/ woven brand label that you use, what info have you included on it? Name? Brand? Logo? Website? Washing instructions? I'd love any feedback you have to offer!
Wrapped up and ready to go! Happy to report that my friend did indeed love it, pink and all : )
See you Saturday for the 30/30 Sewing Challenge kick off!
