Briar Rose

I'm so excited to share this baby quilt with you! It is yet another quilt made using my Starstruck quilt pattern but this time I've used fabrics from Windham's Briar Rose collection by Heather Ross. It was difficult not to share a million photos of this one.

I called upon my instagram friends to help me pick out the binding and the majority voted for this orange print from Moda's Marmalade by Bonnie & Camille. I'm so glad I listened! I love how it turned out! (If you haven't found me on Instagram yet, come find me under the name lellaboutique.)

I quilted it myself with simple freemotion blooms. It's never easy to quilt with soft backs like fleece or minky but I decided to try out some of Moda's Snuggles since I had heard so much about it at quilt market. It did not disappoint! It is a lot thinner than the fleeces I've worked with in the past so it was nice to cut down on some of that bulk. It's so soft that it is pretty much a no brainer for any baby quilt.

These colors are so happy and bright. I hope it will serve as a sort of eviction notice for the overdue baby for whom it is intended. Come on, baby!
