I made this baby quilt for bff Ida's son, Harith. I love this space themed panel and prints by Jill McDonald, perfect for little astro boys :)
It's a simple panel quilt. No pattern, I just simply whipped it up as I go. I patched the top and bottom frame of the panel and added outer border. The quilting is a mixture of free motion meandering on the border and patched frame + some outline quilting on the panel itself. And I also machine bind the quilt.
I love the back of this quilt. I used an apple print backing and included a special little message on the quilt label :
And the best part of making a quilt for a baby is of course seeing the baby on the quilt! :D
Here is the cutest astro boy ever, baby Harith (he is 7 month old) when he came to our house to pick up the quilt :
Isn't he a cutie?
Ok the next photo is epic - we wanted to snap a photo of both Harith and my Erfan together but Erfan was sleepy and cranky. So this is what happened :
