This quilt is great for teaching some wonderful basic building blocks and even though it looks like a crazy amount of piecing, it really goes together fast once your basic units are done. And with the blocks finishing at 20" square, you can really make a big quilt in a little amount of time ;)
And when it came time to quilt it I wanted to highlight that piecing all the more. So I opted not to quilt on any of the print fabric to really make it stand out all the more. Then I went to town on the bacgkround fabric. Small swirls, feathers, and pebbles really added to this design. And my Pearl 402 So Fine thread blended perfectly into the background leaving amazing texture. It really is my go to quilting color ;)
I used 4 pink prints from Dandi-Annie fabric by Robin Pickens for Moda Fabrics and then I combined them with my favorite Gris Grey Grunge background. I just love pink and grey together, it makes for such a shabby chic combination ;)
And since you only have to make 4 blocks for a baby size, this quilt went together in no time at all. It really makes a big statement for a new little one ;)
I quilted this version of Desert Rose in an all over loose feather design. This really is becoming a favorite all over design. It is so fun and fast. Still so grateful for Rebecca for sharing how she does this!!!
And that's the baby version of Desert Rose. So just a reminder, like all my patterns, this is a full color pattern that can be printed in either page format or book format. It is filled with lots of wonderful illustrations to guide you along each step of the way. You are going to have so much fun putting this together ;) And of course, if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to email me ;)
So that's all of it!!! My two new Desert Rose quilts and the new Desert Rose pattern!!!! Again, the pattern can be found in my Etsy Shop and will be on special for $5.50 all this week ;)
Thanks for popping in today and I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
