quilting project: lexi's quilt

My husband's cousin recently gave birth to a baby girl--Lexi--so I decided to make her a quilt. 
I used scrap materials I had in my sewing room to make the top, and purchased the yellow-polka-dot backing and lavender binding.

To make the quilt, I used a combination of three different tutorials. The top came from here, the directions on how to make a quilt sandwich and machine quilt came from here, and steps on how to do binding came from here. The binding is hand-sewn on the back and the finished quilt is about 28" x 28".

I also made a rather clumsy attempt to embroider the quilt with Lexi's name, my name, and the date. I'll have to work on improving my embroidery skills...

  1. Caitlin,

    This quilt is beautiful! The colors are so
    interesting and attractive together. I heard from Molly that it is a treasure. I'm sure Lexi will appreciate your design and effort for years to come.
