I had never tried this pattern before, but thought it turned out just lovely for this baby quilt I gifted recently.
I had been eyeing this fabric (Ruby from Moda) for a long time and finally found the perfect project to use it on! I mixed in a few additional fabrics of my own. I like to use fabrics that coordinate, but aren’t tooooo machy machy.
It wasn’t part of my original plan to include the appliqué hearts, but I think It was just what the quilt needed. I have never used a blanket stitch to appliqué on a quilt before, but I think I turned out really cute! It seemed to fit the overall feel of the piece.
Also, I learned a fabulous little trick. Did you know that you can use used drier sheets instead of interfacing? I decided to try it out in a pinch, and it worked beautifully! It even made the quilt smell really nice and fresh.
I should have snapped a picture of the cute baby on the cute quilt… but alas.
Next time for sure :).
