Wacky Marmalade

Once upon a time, there were four friends.  One of the friends married her prince and will soon be visited by the stork with a baby girl.  The other three sprang into action to make this happy citrus quilt.

We each embroidered a square inspired by the bird in this piece of fabric.

The quilt was backed with a very English Garden-esque fabric.

And finally, the binding.  To save some time, we used this carefree decorative machine stitch.

This is one lucky little girl.  I’m sure this quilt will grow with her for many years to come.  Best wishes to the happy family.

  1. What a beautiful, happy quilt! Perfect for a sweet baby’s nap, and maybe even Mom can cudlle up with her, plenty of room for two.
    Love it! Great job ladies.
