Flower Child Triangles Baby Quilt for Emersyn


Another of the many baby quilts for my little cousins! Little Emersyn is due to be born in the next few weeks, but this quilt was started long, long ago, actually. I bought the fabric and started working on it when I first got pregnant with Rosemary four years ago, but I was so nauseous that I had to put it aside for a bit...and when I came back to it, even though my first-trimester nausea had dissipated, looking at the fabric made my stomach turn all over again! I ended up buying more fabric and making two different quilts for Rosemary, so this half-finished quilt-top ended up in my "to do" pile for many years...until now! I still LOVE this gorgeous Art Gallery fabric (it is seriously so soft and smooth it's unbelievable). The pattern is just some simple equilateral triangles...I have no idea how I came up with it, it was a long time ago!

I trimmed it up, added a border (more Art Gallery fabric), backed it in magenta minky, and then used my free-motion foot on my home machine to quilt it. (which took FOREVER because of many user-errors and setbacks with my machine!) The binding is white satin blanket binding that I machine stitched on. 

I love the colors and the flowers, and I'm glad to finally finish this UFO and send it off to a sweet little baby cousin. <3
