This is my first time joining the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side. If you aren’t familiar with the festival, it is a bit like an online quilt show. Grab a cup of coffee and be ready to enjoy the creativity of fellow quilters from the comfort of your cozy little chair!
The quilt I’d like to share is Halle’s Quilt, newly named for a darling little girl. Halle’s mom and I worked together to choose the fabric and the pattern.
The quilt was made using Lella Boutique’s Sugar Pie for the periwinkles and Kona Snow for the background. The pattern is the Mini Periwinkle from Missouri Star Quilt Company.
The construction of the periwinkles was easy to do using MSQC’s tutorial.
The quilting was a meander done on the Kona Snow, to draw attention to the periwinkles. My friend Connie of Turnberry Lane Quilting did the quilting. The finished size of the quilt is 36″ x 40″.
The backing was a light floral from Sugar Pie. The binding was also from Sugar Pie.
Doesn’t little Halle look adorable napping on the quilt? The quilt was made before Halle was born, and we waited patiently for Halle to arrive. The day finally came, and it was delightful to finally see her on the quilt!
It makes me happy when the quilts bring smiles to the new owners!
