Leaha's Quilt

Little Leaha is 2 months old today!


(These photos were taken a few weeks ago at my Dad's wedding. She was an angel through the whole thing!)

I had to wait til she was born to find out she was a girl and then I could start making her a quilt. I've had this Sorbet for 2 years and I finally got to use it. I finished the quilt top back in April and have been slowly quilting it when I get 5 minutes.


I used this 'Moda Bake Shop' Pattern called 'Awesome' Lap Quilt which sadly needed some tweaking to make it work. I had to trim the blocks to make them fit together and then adjust the lengths of the strips to make it right.
When I laid the 3 sections out together it was just to...pink? To much of something...and very overwhelming! It needed the plain cream to break up the colour a bit and then it looked odd with just the sashings so I added an outer border too.


I've quilted straight-in-the-ditch lines along each section and a small stipple in cream thread on the sashings and border.

A total 'stash' quilt! Yeah me!

More quilting to come!
