Baby Girl Quilt

My friend,Jana, had a baby girl.
 Hailey Belle.
Isn't that a cute name?

I made her this quilt which uses a lot of the same fabrics as the Shabby Chic ones I've made before.

But the pink and white are that ultra soft chenille.

I couldn't really quilt the dang thing because it was sort of poofy and wouldn't lay flat after I sewed it together. The chenille is too stretchy, but hopefully it will hold up okay...

I had to piece the back together because I didn't actually have a chenille piece large enough. I was using some pottery barn outlet blankets I got for a dollar each(so cheap for this sort of fabric!). The pottery barn blankets had been embroidered so some cutting and piecing was necessary.
Even getting it big enough this way was a stretch. (pun intended)

She liked it.
 Well...Jana (mom) did.
 Hailey is a little young to say either way. :)

And here she is! So adorable!!! (Thanks for letting me post pictures of her Jana!)

  1. I love it! I love the way you bundled it up as a gift, too.

  2. When I've worked with "ninny" fabric I usually tie the quilt, since its too hard to quilt. Its beautiful!

    1. Oh...that's a good idea. I should have thought of that. :) duh
