Sew: Monogrammed baby quilt
Made with all pink fabrics around the border:
And the cutest alphabet print as the backing:
Inspired by the Harper applique nursery bedding from Pottery Barn:
I beefed up the border and moved the letter to the center.
"A" is for Ariana:
Here's how I made the quilt:
1. Find all pink scraps at least 4"wide:
2. Sew pink scraps together into long strips, trim at 4" wide.
Lay out large center white piece and sew strips to center:
3. For the monogram, iron on fusible interfacing to wrong side of fabric.
Print out letter to size
4. Using a lightbox trace letter outline onto fabric, cut out and pin in center of white piece:
5. Zig zag stitch around edge of letter:
6. For the backing I used Zoo Babies by Whistler Studios:
(it does come in blue as well)
7. Make the quilt sandwich: backing face down, batting, then quilt top face up.
Safety pin every 4":
8. Quilt around the letter first, then on the diagonal every 4", then in gutter of border.
Trim edges all flush:
9. Add white binding, miter the corners:
10. Press binding down and around to create edge, straight stitch in gutter:
11. Don't forget to add your label:
12. Roll and tie with matching ribbon:
A washable, user friendly gift for a new baby girl.
