Baby Harper

My friends are finally welcoming their first baby this fall!  Little Harper has been a long time coming and they are over the moon excited, so am I :).  She finally had her baby shower today, so I can share this quilt with you!  She requested a while back a gray/pink theme.  Here's the final product. 


The top is a large churn dash block, 12 inches square.  For the back, I used the extra blocks and some squares from the quilt.





The pink and grey with the cream background is my Mother's favorite so she requested it to get it's own photo.  For top quilting, this quilt got a dogwood flower all-over pattern.  They are so cute and pretty easy to quilt.


Ok, now it's back to being summertime lazy!  Sorry to those of you who have been commenting, I will get back to you, PROMISE!  This summer has been crazy busy, but things should calm down after this week.  

Sew long for now, 
Patch & Chels

  1. I love that this is a 'mature' baby quilt! Very pretty, and I'm a big fan of your embroidered label! It looks amazing! I may have to steal the label idea for a baby quilt I'm making for my friend.

  2. Chelsea, it's so pretty and I love your embroidery on it. Nice heartwarming touch. Did you do the quilting yourself? I'd love to see a close-up of the pattern. I'm not familiar with that one.

  10. I second Izzy's comment: the label is so sweet. Is that how you label most of your quilts, with a little hand embroidery?

  14. Wow! You have put so much work into back and front it is reversible.
    It is hard to beat a classic churn dash, isn't it?
