This summer Erin married her sweetheart Paul. Paul’s sister Sue just had a baby girl. She is the first grandchild in their family. In honour of the birth of Leah and the joining of our families I made her this baby quilt.
I used a stylized feather in the lighter triangles to push them into the background and have the brighter triangles pop forward.
I used trapunto to make the hearts pop and then did a dense quilting in the background to enhance their 3d effect even more.
I like the back of this quilt. I used some left over HST blocks and a few 5 inch squares. You can really see the free motion quilting on the back.
