Ben’s quilt

I made this quilt for Rebecca’s new baby boy, Benjamin James.  I blogged about it here and here.

This is the first time I’ve really machine quilted and I loved doing it.  Even put off studying for a weekend because I couldn’t stop doing it.  I’m now a machine-quilting convert.

The back is made of soft flannel, which I love putting on baby quilts.  The front was a pack of 6.5″ charm squares by Felicity Miller called, “circus cats and dogs”.

The wadding is a thin cotton, which I love much more than the thick stuff I had been using.  It’s beautiful and warm, yet cool enough for summer use as well (I expect…).

Made in June 2009.
