Love hearts Pinwheel Prairie Point Baby Quilt

Finally got this listed in the shop! I finished the quilt a long time ago, but hadn't got around to making the matching bib and top. I guess this is definitely more a girl - lots of pink!

The beautiful pinwheel and prairie point pattern was designed by Jodi Nelson for Moda Bakeshop, I added some raw applique hearts to the inner corners. All of the quilted hearts were hand quilted with variegated thread, which goes from a light vanilla ice-cream colour to a candy floss pink. The borders are quilted with the same thread in a random meandering design and there is some straight line quilting to emphasise the borders and prairie points.

The fabric mostly a charm pack from Moda’s Love is in the Air range designed by Deb Strain and one or two pieces from their Clemetine and Nouveu ranges. The hand finished binding is made from fabric by Amy Butler fabric.

The sashing is a soft white cotton, the backing cotton from Ikea and the wadding/batting is a light soft cotton.

This quilt is approximately 41 cm by 104 cm/ 33” by 84”.
