These are the crib quilts I made for Lia and Locke as newborns. Lia's was always "used"; I had hoped it would become her "lovey" quilt, but instead, she bonded to a little pink blanket, her "Baa-Baa." Her nursery was decorated with Paddington Bear motifs, and so I luckily found several different Paddington-themed fabrics. This was only the 3rd or 4th quilt I ever made, and I came up with the design myself. It was minimally and very simply straight-line machine quilted. What I was most proud of was how Paddington in the lower left corner holds a kite string that I stitched in black to reach up to the kite in the middle row, which flies in the air above a Paddington who is taking his leisure!
|I chiefly straight line machine quilted this quilt, but I hand quilted cloud-shapes in the outer border, to echo the clouds I used for the backing; see below.|
