Quilt Shot 132 ~ Harper's Baby Quilt

 

A baby quilt made for a little one named Harper.
Her cousin asked me to make this quilt from 
Harper's past Great Grand mother's fabrics.

I usually free hand my letters, 
but for these I downloaded the letter shapes to follow from
and I printed 2 to a page to downsize.
Or, you can download the KG Redhands font,
and install it on your computer,
and make whatever size outlined letters you desire.


Remember the block called Abundant that I posted recently?

This quilt was designed by yours truly.  
Strip sets were made of five 2½ inch strips.
Then that strip set was cut across in 2½ inch strips,
 and sewn end to end to make one long strip.
Then the strip was folded in half and sewn like
 the "Real Scrappy" Quilt to make the random pattern.


A strip set of 4.5 inch strips was made as well.


Still using the Dream Frame and Innovis machine with stitch regulator to quilt most quilts.
 



Happy life little Harper.

  2. Wow! If great grandma knew that her dresses would one day be made into a beautiful quilt to wrap her great grand-daughter in, I'm sure she'd be overjoyed! The dress fabrics chosen go so well together. Your pattern and name are perfect for a quilt that is sure to be well-loved!
