Lovely Floral Quilt : A Finished Quilt


A proud moment for me, I finished all of the projects on my proposed Q2 for the 2016 Finish-a-Long!!!

I love how this little quilt turned out for my youngest daughter. I used a couple of charm parks of the Regent Street Lawns from Moda and some chambray fabric for the background and this is such a snuggly quilt.


At 44 inches square this is the perfect size for my 15 month old daughter to use on her bed. Plus it will be a great quilt to snuggle with when she graduates to a twin size bed instead of the little toddler bed.


For the quilting I did a serpentine stitch on my machine, evenly spacing them out. Then added in a highlight cross hatch section. And I love how it turned out. Some of my favorite quilting motifs can be done with a walking foot and I love that. Not that I don't enjoy free motion quilting, but there is something about a simple or fairly simple quilting design.


I backed her quilt with a bright and cheerful yellow cuddle fabric, which showcases the quilting just beautifully. As this is my second quilt I've done with cuddle fabric, I learned from my previous experience and spray basted this quilt and did a few pins just for good measure. And boy what a difference that made! I had not puckering or pulling, this was actually a dream to quilt. To the point where I know I will be doing more cuddle backed quilts in my future.

  2. I love how your serpentine stitch quilting came out! At first glance, I thought it was an E2E longarm quilting pattern. It looks great with all the different prints in this quilt. Congrats on a lovely finished quilt!

  4. This is a fabulous little quilt! Thank you for sharing your cuddle fabric trick...I hate using it because it stretches and moves. I may give it another go using spray baste. That happy yellow is well worth the extra work, though. It's a beautiful quilt!

    1. After my last quilt with cuddle that puckered in a few places, I decided to try spray basting with a few pins and that made all the difference! I highly recommend spray basting when quilting with cuddle.
