Kylie's Quilt is quilted

My friend Amy has a little toddler that is just ball of energy and cute as can be!!  That little one certainly needed a quilt as cute as she is.  This is the quilt Amy made for her, almost as cute as her little one (I mean ya really have to see her, she is adorable!)  What a great pattern and she always picks colors that look wonderful.  The quilt is from Debbie Mumm's Cuddle Quilts, Flutterby.  It took a while for us to come up with the design that works for Kylie's personality and fits my skill set, but I think together we finally got it.  Neither one of use could come up with something for the sashing so it was just Stitch in the Ditch.  Which will look awesome once it's washed.  The big blank blocks have a really soft corduroyish feel to them.  We decided on some flowers from the book and used those.  One block at the bottom has her name in it.  Simple swirls as a background fill.  CC in the big 9 patches with swirls in the center.   Diamonds on the sashing with flower like feathers in the half diamonds.    I hope she likes it.  I'm always so nervous quilting for others.
Flutterby - Pattern by Debbie Mumm
Cotton batting, Glide on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin.  I only used two colors on this top. I was prepared to use more than that, much more than that. But when I saw how the off white seemed to take on a different color depending on which block it was in, I just used that throughout for the center.  I used a darker pink on the sashing and the sashing SITD.

And here's some detailed pictures.

  7. I really like how your CCs puff just by filling in the center. And you did a great job of outlining the applique. Now you just need to teach me to do those little swirls so consistently.
