I’ve made it a tradition to make each of my nieces and nephews a quilt when they are born. This newest quilt is for my brother and sister-in-law’s adorable newest addition, Josephine Addison (she’ll go by Addie). It was so fun to make another little girl’s quilt, since the last two family quilts I’ve made have been for little boys (here’s the set, if you’re interested: Ethan’s Quilt, Sammy’s Quilt, Maddie’s Quilt).
This turned out to be such a colorful string quilt, and I even got a little help from my friends in the Modern Quilting Bee!
The back simply features a row of strings, sandwiched between the stark white. I quilted it with a random stipple design, although it’s hard to see it in the pictures.
Each family quilt has a label, and for this one I decided to use my machine’s alphabet to embroider the tag.
I so hope Addie will love her quilt and that it will stay in the family for generations to come!
