Stacie's Baby quilt

I finished a Spinning Four patch baby quilt for baby Stacie, a first baby for Trevor and Sarah, who are members of my Church. First babies are a great reason to make a quilt :-). I had been saving this quilt for that special baby and since Trevor is a farmer, the animals were the perfect choice! Here is the finished quilt:

The original fabric can be seen in the border:

The four patch blocks turned out really fun. This was the second quilt I had made from this set of blocks. You can see the first one here. I cut the first block too small so I only got 15 blocks out of the fabric. So, I fussy cut one sheep out of a leftover piece so I could make another quilt. I just love these animals...they are so cute :-).


The label on the back:

I found a perfect colour purple for the back and it had sunflowers on it to continue the country theme. I realized that I spelled Stacie's name wrong. It's too late to change the label, but Sarah figured that Stacie won't notice it :-).

This is one of my favourite quilts - besides the one you made for Emily. Hers is still my absolute favourite and not just because you made it for my firstborn! We use it all the time and it still looks perfect even though it's been washed many many times. These quilts are such a wonderful gift....

I love the purple and green. And the animals are so sweet :).

Thanks for your comment Jenn! I had to go back in my blog to remember which quilt I made for Emily :-). It's so fun to have a good excuse to make another baby quilt. I love the purple and green animal print too..I have another print like that in totally different colours which will be fun too.

What a great quilt! I love the color scheme and the darling animal print. I'm sure it will become a treasured heirloom.

A wonderful quilt! Good for you!

That method/pattern is on my "to do list" for the new year...
