Today I am excited to share another Charming Baby Quilt with you!!! This is one I had planned for the Charming Baby Quilt Remix's but it got set aside. But now, It is all finished and I just love it!!! This is Just Blooming with the center flower added and isn't it just so pretty!!!!
So the question is, why did I set it aside. As I said, this was my original idea for the remix but as I started making it, I quickly realized that "remix" was more like "rewrite". I couldn't figure out an easy way to make the alterations in the directions without basically re-writting the pattern. And I have to say, sometimes I am a little OCD about things being the same, and it was driving me nuts that all the remixes were big quilts except this baby sized one. So half way through it, I set it aside and instead made the large queen sized Just Blooming Remix quilt.
This is the original Just Blooming quilt and I just love it, but always wanted to see what it would look like with a flower in the center as well. And so even though this Low Volume one was not working for my original plan, I just knew it had to be finished.
And so with some free time this week, it is now finished. And I am just thrilled it didn't get set aside in the WIP pile ;) For this Just Blooming baby quilt, I used all the low volumes that were left from my Charming Baby Sew Along Sampler Quilt
and added a navy background to it. And doesn't that just make those low volumes pop!!! So fun!!!
And when it came time to quilt it, I decided on all over echoed paisley. I just love this quilting design and the wonderful texture it adds. And it is also a design that I have made a free motion quilting video tutorial of
, just in case you are interested ;)
I just love the way this turned out, and it will make such a wonderful baby gift ;) I think it is pretty gender neutral, which is always great for that baby shower when mom and dad to be are keeping it a surprise ;) Which doesn't happen so much anymore, but we kept it a surprise with two of our kiddo's and it really was fun!!
And that is my Just Blooming Plus Baby quilt!!! I hope you love it just as much as I do.
