In My Heart Baby Quilt

How about a fun baby quilt as this week's inspiration? My pattern, In My Heart, was made with beautiful Riley Blake Designs fabrics from the Dolly collection. I have just received the quilt back from Annie's and my husband loved it - he had not seen this one yet. It measures 36" x 36", a perfect size to let the baby play on it on the floor.

I free motion quilted it with hearts, straight lines, and fun motifs so the machine applique' hearts would really pop. The applique' and the quilting were done using Aurifil 40wt threads.

Here are some of the fabrics I used:

Aren't they gorgeous? The colors and prints were very cute in the hearts. In My Heart has just been published in Annie's Catalog (online) as one of their exclusive patterns and can be found at Annie's Craft Store.com. You can download the PDF version or request a printed copy.

The quilt has a cool vintage look to it and will look even better once it is washed and all wrinkly.

Here is hoping you have a fantastic week!
