Signature Quilt

This is one of those secret projects that I couldn’t reveal before last weekend. Now that the recipient has her quilt I can post my pictures!!

I found this pattern on Moda Bake Shop and immediately knew that I wanted to do this for a sister who is expecting. Many squares were cut and backed with freezer paper. An extra pigma pen was bought. All in all, I would consider it a success.

Here are some of the sqaures laid out on the table.

After putting all the squares together and appliqueing the letters on:

Here is what the applique looked like from the back. Pretty messy and none of the corners were right but I didn’t think it was horrible for my first time!

I was in a hurry to get it wrapped and was loosing sunlight so out to the yard I went:

The back. The free-motion quilting on the border was also a first. I was terrified the entire time I was doing. I was just praying that  I would not have to sit down and rip all of that out. Luckily, it too turned out ok.

I think that this ended up being around 34″x34″. A perfect size to snuggle up in or hang up. I was able to get both families to sign squares so that was really great to have our family and her in-laws all on there.
