Sophie Quilt

IMG_2904

I’ve wanted to make a pieced flower quilt for a while now…so having a girl was the perfect excuse.  The fabrics are from my stash…lots of different fabric lines and solids.  The center circles are appliqued on to add some “round-ness”.

After debating for way to long about how to quilt the flowers I decided to leave the petals un-quilted.  They have a 3D effect that I love.  My Mom has a flower quilt that was quilted this way and I’ve always loved it…so I copied.  The circles each got a swirl in them with stippling all over the rest.

Sophie loves it:

Or at least she will….someday…crossing fingers.

The pattern comes in 5 sizes and is available here as a PDF or hard copy.
