Daisy Chain Baby -- Part II {Finished Quilt}

I realized this week that I had to get this quilt finished -- and quick -- because little lady is likely to arrive any day! So this week I did got a step or two of finishing done every day until I sewed the last stitch yesterday -- washing and pressing the backing, getting the quilt layered and basted, quilting and trimming, and finally binding!

Here is little lady's quilt!


As mentioned previously, this quilt is the Daisy Chain pattern that was our quilt along pattern in 2019 (that will eventually be available as a stand alone pattern) in the baby size with a 2.5" border on all four sides. The fabrics used are from the Painted Meadow line by Robin Pickens which were scraps left over from another quilt that I will finally get to show you in July!

For the quilting, I used a meander with interspersed flowers -- just like the original verison of this quilt that I made!


The backing is an adorable flannel with lady bugs and butterflies. The binding is the same pink floral that I used for the star blocks.


This quilt was delivered yesterday to little lady's parents in case she arrives this weekend!
