Baby Indianna's quilt

March 09, 2011

Our lovely friends Karen and Naresh welcomed their beautiful baby Indianna to the world on Saturday. I have been making this quilt in secret and could not wait to give it to Indianna and Karen.  It is my first attempt at machine quilting and was oh so much quicker than hand quilting!! I will definitely do some more machine quilting in the future as you get to see the end result so much faster and you run less of a risk of losing interest in your quilt by spending so many hours on the couch with the hoop, needle and thread (although I also enjoyed this...).

Baby Indianna - 4 days old, with big sister Alia

The pattern is from Quilts Baby book - although I swapped the layout from landscape to profile as I think it suits the 'steps' better this way...

Fabrics are assorted from stash, Spotlight and even an ancient piece from Bali that I bought about 10 years ago! I think it's a lovely soft and feminine quilt (oops Naresh, Karen did let the gender secret out!).

  10. Our Dolphins Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to a traditional flagpole, tailgate pole, or our 6' aluminum flagpole. The perimeter of our Dolphins Flag is double stitched and the Officially Licensed NFL Miami Dolphins team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, this flag is also perfect to hang in your game room, sports room, office, or kids room.
