Friendship Star Baby Quilt

Since I’m not quilting this week, I thought I’d take a look back at some of the things I’ve done. This friendship star baby quilt, pieced and quilted in 2007, is one of my favorites. While the fabrics are not traditional baby colors because I used a novelty print with brightly colored dolphins and then added purple and orange Moda prints, it is a fun quilt for a child. In order to use up all the fabrics, the back has some piecing also.

The quilting design is one of my favorites and is a combination of two different types of swirls that I often do free-style. I have a digital quilting design at intelligentquilting.com called Lollipops that is the pattern for this quilting design.

I designed the quilt in Electric Quilt 6 software and you can download it here.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
