A few days later and here we have the finished baby quilt
Here is the original post where I talk about how & why I made this quilt.
The general gist is that I had some liberty fabric strips from a previous project and I wanted to make a baby quilt, this is what I came up with.
I wanted to do something different for the quilting, I'm really enjoying the look of circular quilting and I felt that it would make it just a little bit more interesting than straight lines.
I was also seeing a lot of love hearts everywhere!
apparently valentines day is soon....
so a heart shape it was!
I started with my heart shape in the middle, I then echoed around the heart in a 1/4 inch distance until I came to the edge of the basted quilt.
for the binding I had some pre made liberty of london bias binding which I bought in London last September when I was at the Liberty of London store. It was really nice to sew on.
Here we have the complete front and back!
the back is also a piece of Liberty of London tana lawn.
I love how the heart echo's out
It took a while to machine quilt the heart echo, but well worth the effort.
