Finished Quilt for Aliyah!
Originally I was going to have this quilt ready for my sister when she came to visit in August. It didn't get done in time, so then I decided I would make it and have it ready before the baby was born. It didn't get done in time for that either! I finally got it done in time to take to Hawaii when I went to visit baby Aliyah and Stefanie in December. Better late than never, and my sister loves it too!
Pattern is "Vintage Baby Quilt" by YoYo Mama Designs and fabric is Moda "Love U" Jelly Roll.
The jelly roll made it SO easy to cut out 196 2 1/2 squares. I took multiple strips and lined them up on my cutting mat. Since the jelly roll is fabric already cut into 2 1/2 wide strips, I only had to cut them in one direction. I have enough squares to make 2 more blankets!
To make the quilt, you need to draw on the background fabric with a washable fabric marker. Mine did NOT come off all the way when I washed it! I'm hoping after a few washes, it will come off entirely.
Of course you can't see the blue lines unless you're up close.
I absolutely love the little frayed edges!
and the binding...
and the backing.
I think my favorite is the p.s. I Love You!!
