June's Quilt

*I took a blogging break between moving houses and having babies, but I was still sewing.  I want to share those projects now, for my own journal.*

This is the second quilt I made for June while I was still pregnant with her.  I made it in the spring of 2011.  It was inspired by this beautiful quilt that's been a favorite of mine for years.

I love this quilt and I loved making it.  It is gentle and calm, quite the contrast to some of those early days with a new baby.  It now sports yellow stains from various things baby has thrown at it.  Those stains make me love it more.  This will always be one of my favorites, if not the, out of all the quilts I have made.

 Pattern: Free form wonky squares 
Fabrics: Various shades of yellow and aqua (some Anna Maria Horner Garden Party, It's a hoot by Momo, Michael Miller dots, and others).  Backing fabric is Sandi Henderson's Farmers Market Henna.
Made for June
Spring 2011
Psss...I'm sharing this with Quilt Story today.

Warm heart

We took a break from winter and headed down to Florida. I did quilt this before we left and I hope to get around to binding it tonight. I created rows of loopy hearts using free motion quilting - it was really a LOT of fun to quilt.
