Another Quilt for My "Grand Baby to Be"!

Choosing the thread colors for the thread painting.

Instead of stitching straight lines, I stitch wiggle lines for the details and the outlining of each applique. Gives them all a nice texture.

I stitched/thread painted on each applique piece.

You can see the stitching on the backside where I stitched/thread painted.

It's a wall hanging for the baby's room, so I made a sleeve for hanging it.

 I pieced the binding with three blue fabrics. That way I am using up the scraps!

I stitched on the binding with an embroidery stitch.

This is the backside, so you can't read it. I stitched across the bottom "Made with Love by Grandma Marcia 2013" with a lavender thread.

I rolled it up, so it is ready to pack in my bag when we go to see the new baby.  I have sent the other three quilts already.

These are the other two quilts I sent for the "Baby to Be". They both have the blue minkee backing fabric.

Click Here for the post about the one on the bottom. I will share about the top one sometime soon.

I ordered the applique blocks pre made from Marsye's Quilt Blocks.  They are already ironed on to the blocks.

 I requested an assortment of different cream backgrounds and light/soft colors to go with my vintage look fabrics.  I love them!

I am ordering more applique blocks to make a girl baby quilt next for a friend's "Grand Baby to Be". 

If you hop over and buy them, please tell her Marcia sent you!

You know I always share stuff I love!  I love her applique quilt blocks!

Adorable! The colors of the appliques are perfect. I follow Marsye on facebook and love seeing all her different appliques.

I love how the thread painting shows on the reverse of the quilt. Makes the back just as fun as the front.
