Here’s the Elspeth Baby Quilt.  Fingers and legs in the quilt photo.  Quilting has and assortment of Stripes, Crazy Worms, Pebbles and Trapunto.  The overall vertical design has three main bars, which is kinda cool because little Elspeth is the 3rd kiddo in the family.

I learned that if you have a mostly-white front, you’ll need a back that is “light”.  Maybe it was just that brand of white I used.  Who knows.  Just to be safe, the back on this one is pieced greys from my stash.  The piecing wasn’t wide enough, so the white stripe was added.   You can really see the Dresden quilting from the back.

And then the binding.  I must be going through a serious stripe binding phase.

  1. I love it! And I enjoy using striped fabric for bindings. Stripes are hard for me to use inside the quilt, but often seem perfect for the binding!

    Anyway, love the quilt! I’m in awe of your skill!

  2. Such a fun quilt for a new sweet baby girl! And I always go to stripes or mini dots for binding!

    • Oooh- Mini dots. I’ll have to put that on my radar. I don’t think I’ve tried those for binding.

  3. I love this quilt! Lucky baby!! I do have a question for you. I’m about to start FMQ a quilt for my granddaughter. There is a lot of negative space and it’s a bit of a ‘wonky star/story quilt’. I wanted to quilt ‘once upon a time’ floating through it. Did you use a layer of wool to ‘puff’ up the name on yours or did that just happen? I’m sure my project with go through the wash A LOT, so I want to be sure that stays prominent. Any tips??
