Finished Taffy Quilt

Another cuddly baby quilt finished!

I quilted this whole quilt in one sitting last weekend and just finished up the binding last night while we watched football.

Here it is pre- quilting, post-pinning:

And here it is all finished!

For the quilting, I did free motion swirls all over the quilt. The scale ended up being slightly smaller than I originally intended, but I am very happy with the quilting, nonetheless. Here's the front and back post-quilting, in the middle of finishing the binding yesterday:

Since I didn't have enough strips left over from the jelly roll to bind the quilt, I bound it with some green vine yardage in my stash -- I am pretty sure it is from the Honey Honey line.

And as usual, I backed with flannel -- this time I used grey since I was having a hard time finding a green or blue that went well with these fabrics.

This one is in the mail to it's rightful owner!

Quick Stats:
Pattern: adapted from Salt Water Taffy baby quilts on Moda Bake Shop
Size: 39 x 52 inches
Fabric: jelly roll of Road 15 by Sweetwater
Backing: grey snuggle flannel
Quilting: Swirls in off white thread
Binding: green vine from Honey Honey

Linking up at Fabric Tuesday and Finish it up Friday!


  1. Very cute finish. When you use flannel for backing, do you prewash it?

  2. Hi Alison, I saw your intriguing Taffy Quilt on Blossom Heart Quilts. I worked out the design on graph paper, using four blocks. I tried rotating two of the blocks so the "loose ends" are next to those of the neighboring block. Then I used two colors for each frame around the center four-patches, and continued those same two colors for all the frames, "weaving" them in and out. So many possibilities! Keep on quiltin'.

  3. Hi! Saw your quilt on Quilt Story. Sweet little baby quilt. The swirl pattern quilting was a good choice. Congrats on the finish!

  4. adorable. great job.

  5. Very cute finish! Great balance on the front, and I love flannel backings! Sooo snuggly.

  6. Congrats on the very cute finish!

  7. It looks great! And I love flannel for the backing too: it makes it so cozy!
