Leah’s Quilt

Now that I have given this quilt as a gift I can post pictures of it.  It is my Oct ALYoF Goal and my first finish for the final quarter of the 2015 Finish-a-Long.

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.
