Sew Frou Frou Quilter

Spreading warm wishes one quilt at a time…

a finish

I’m done with this “simple” baby quilt.  I say simple with a snort because this quilt and I seemed to fight each other every step of the way.  (perhaps my looming birthday is spreading it’s bad karma to make sure I recognize that I am another year older).  I had such high hopes for this dear little fabric; maybe that’s why I’m disappointed with this finish.  You may recall that I initially had planned to do a Schoenrock cross quilt and decided after doing a test block that I did not have enough fabric to make this fabric shine and showcase the little red riding hood girls.  I probably should have done another star ala Jeni Baker of In Color Order but I wanted this quilt to be really girly with big loopy flowers quilted throughout.  It wasn’t meant to be though what with my fmq headaches. So I made do with straight line quilting.

Nicole's Baby Quilt Front

I think I like it better than the front.

The main fabric on the back is an Alexander Henry dot--I think it was from a Christmas line.   It's red with irregular pink dots.

Fabric  Aneela Hooey’s A walk in the woods, Alexander Henry Dot, Kona Iron,  White embroidered dot fabric (I don’t know who this is by)

This is my first finish for 2013 (and it’s June…)  I’ve got a lot to do if I want to get all that I have planned for this year done.

I am a working mother of 3 beautiful children and wife of a very supportive husband (that is addicted to running). I love creative endeavors. Quilting is my way to get in touch with myself and unwind and hopefully connect with others too.

  1. So cute! Strip n’ flip was a good choice for your fabrics. The back and the binding you picked suit the Aneela Hoey very well. Look at these pictures in a few weeks, and I bet you’ll like it a whole lot more.

  2. I think it’s such a sweet quilt, perfectly suited for the fabric…
