Emily Patricia's Baby Quilt

This is another quilt using the Crazy 8's pattern. It is the same pattern as Abigail's quilt, except this is a true Crazy 8's. I used 8 FQ's to make this one :-). It's a great way to use FQ's in two or three colour families. I've had the green striped fabric for a long time and it just never matched anything else. Finally, it worked for this quilt. I got it from a pen pal from Australia once. Here is the finished quilt:

I quilted it with a variegated thread with leaves, flowers and to quilt these quilts because you have squares to aim for and don't have to plan out the quilting for the whole quilt :-).

Here you can see the quilting on the back. It is quilted on my trusty Singer 15-88 treadle sewing machine made in Canada in 1951.

It even had a label!

Jenn gave me a picture of Baby Emily on her new quilt yesterday, so I thought I'd add it to the blog as well :-). Thanks Jenn!

It looks beautiful! I didn't get to see it finished at the baby shower because I was getting the food set out... I'm sure I'll see it at Jen's house sometime. I love the quilting you did on it - so fun! :0)

I absolutely love it! Of all the ones that you have made and I have seen...I think it is my favourite!

Thanks again, Jacqui, for the gorgeous quilt. It's perfect for in her crib or to lay on the floor and let her play. The colours are beautiful.
