This quilt was inspired by Michael Miller/Patty Sloniger Backyard Baby fabric. Basically, as I was making THIS, Backyard Bugs quilt I fell in love with the Bug Jars and knew I'd use some of the fabric for a beautiful baby quilt. I'd seen the basic/background pattern online and made up the bars and blocks from that but the 6 inch blocks were too simple for me and I thought it needed a little more personality so with a little magic on the copier and I had myself an applique pattern. I absolutely love the way it turned out. I hope I have enough scraps left to make another baby quilt out of this line again because it's so endearing. I custom quilted it with little leaves because I liked the way they went on my Backyard Bugs, I also stitched around all the applique and embroidry work to highlight it and last I finished it off with a border of tiny ants inspired by the Ant Maze fabric. The entire thing came together relatively quickly, from start to finish it was 7 days- which was good because the baby I was making it for was already born and I was anxious to meet his cute face and cuddle on him.
Thanks for checking in!
