We are having a bit of a baby explosion in our extended family. On February 9th we welcomed Ava Nicole. I thought they were due in March so I had some time to spare. I was so sure that they were having a boy that I had started on a masculine quilt. When we got the call that Ava Nicole was born, I had to switch to baby girl mode. I just love this fabric from Bonnie and Camille called “Vintage Modern” and thought it was perfect. I’ve never played with a drunkards path block so that was my inspiration.
I had some fun free motion quilting it to enhance the shapes.

Love the way you put her name on there!! Beautiful quilt and your quilting really enhances the piecing!!
What a beautiful quilt for a little girl! I bet that remains a favorite for a long, long time.
Beautifully done! Congrats on the just in time finish.
Beautiful! I love the quilting designs you chose.
What a beautiful quilt for a little baby. I love the feathers you’ve done.
It’s a great quilt. Love the fabrics you choose.
Beautiful baby quilt, love the name applique and of course your machine quilting is excellent!
What a delightful quilt!!
Lovely little finish! I especially like that you personalized it with her name. Oh, and your quilting is incredible! Thanks for linking up with TGIFF @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge!
What a fantastic quilt! I would be hard pressed to choose between the fabrics and the quilting. I am absolutely certain that this one will be loved for a long, long time. Little Ava Nicole is one lucky little girl!
Thank you for your very generous comments!
Baby’s are special, but I’m not so sure I would do a Drunkard’s Path for ANY baby! Wow! Most babies I sew for generally always get a far less complex quilt! 😉
I love this quilt and the fabrics you chose, but I feel I must correct you. This fabric is not called Scrumptious. It’s Bonnie Camille’s Vintage Modern fabric, a personal favorite of mine.
Thank you for noticing my mistake. I couldn’t remember the name of the fabric so I went searching online and obviously misidentified it.
Such a beautiful quilt for a baby girl. Congratulations to her Mum and Dad on her arrival.
Thank you or linking up with Free Motion Mavericks!
For or read for. Sorry, it’s late.
What a beautiful baby quilt and loving the name and how you added it to the quilt.
