once upon a time

a sweet baby quilt that will soon be off to it's new owner.  I saw this twinner quilt last week and it reminded me that I needed to get mine posted.
the backing is a Nicey Jane print from Heather Bailey (i love this print, in all colors).
I stippled this quilt because it's the fasted way to quilt (for me), I know, I know i'm supposed to be trying different quilting methods--next quilt will be different.  now to get this mailed off before the baby arrives...

update:  the fabric is by alexander henry, called "once upon a time"
i googled it and found it here.

  2. That is adorable~!! I stipple everything...It's so much easier, and honestly I DO think it gives it an overall better appearance, but that's just me :)

  10. I forgot how much I loved this fabric until this popped up in my reader! Alexander Henry makes the cutest prints.

    I've just bought a panel and now know what I'll be making my sister in law for the new baby. Did you just use Konas for the solids?

  15. It's so pretty! I love all the colours.. they're bold but calm. And I tend to stipple everything because it's quickest for me too. One day I'll do something else hehe
