Quilted Zig Zags....

Now that the Ladies at the Abbey Quilters have seen it, it's time to gift the quilt to baby Ivan, he's two months old already so it's about time.

I thought you would like to see a few photos first .....
I decided to quilt only the Zigs and not the Zags.....lol.....
I quilted swirls and pebbles in the white background fabric, this pushed the blue fabrics forward and also leaves a lovely design on the back of the quilt.
Piano keys finished of the border, but also in the border I placed a name plate with date of birth..

  5. Kay, that is so very pretty! Would you mind if I tried the name plate idea on a baby quilt for my sister?

  7. Kay, this is beautiful. The quilting really makes this one special. I like the choice to quilt the zigs. And the nameplate is so elegant. Really striking.

  9. It looks great Kay. Love the name plate too, and by not quilting the blue makes for a much softer baby quilt. Love it.
