Embroidered Baby Quilt

SP is new to quilting but a pro at embroidery!  She saw this idea at a quilt show and together we worked out the instructions for cutting.   Her embroidery is perfect!  🙂

It is 45″ square with 6″ blocks and 6″ Nine-Patch blocks.

The pieced blocks have a freehand quilt design that coordinates with the border quilting.  I added meander quilting around the embroidery.

A new border…. and I like it!  🙂  I used a pastel variegated thread with a touch of shimmer to it.  Love the effect of Superior Rainbows thread!!

I added the binding for her and our mutual friend is hand-stitching it to the back as we speak!   I think this is a lovely baby gift!! ♥
