You already know I love this quilt but I will say it again!! The prairie points are the best...and such a very sweet gift for a new baby...and cuddly too.
True Thanks Mary...I love how soft the back is...and although the prairie points are a little fussy to sew on...I am SO glad I did them on this quilt :)
What a sweet quilt. I love that butter yellow, and the prairie points are perfect for the Dresden. She is going love this.
Skynme thanks, Erica! I was happy with how it came out, especially because these were the first Dresens I had made...and also first time with Prairie points!
the Dresdens were perfect when I saw them a few weeks ago. But I love the scale and color of the border and those prairie points are the icing on the cake. One of the sweetest baby quilts I've seen! Pinned!
Terryt1955 Thanks, Terry! Well you confirmed the border fabric for me...seemed like it was made for it ;) Thanks for the pin!
Love everything about this...wonderful quilt...wonderful gift!
I love using minky for a baby quilt...or any quilt that you want specifically to bring soft comfort. I love the red mingled among the softer colors. Mother, father and babe will be so pleased with this. It's a winner!
I love the traditional pattern with a modern pop. Thanks for the prairie point ruler recommendation. I have been wanting to do that on a baby quilt and been discouraged by the process. Now I have a new notion on my wish list. Like I need another ruler. LOL
What a gorgeous quilt! Great job given all of the "firsts" in this quilt. Looks like you're a pro
Carolmarie Thanks, Carol! This is one of my favorite baby quilts I've made ...can't wait to give it to her!
Mymble thank you, Margaret!!!
Quilterinmotion Minky is great for baby quilts - this is the second time I've used it and I always love how soft it is - also it quilts up really nicely. Thank you!
Drnic2c I was discouraged thinking about making Prairie points the traditional way...and I can't say enough how great that ruler is...just make sure you make your borders divisible by the size prairie point you are using (so my points were 4" X 2" and so I made my quilt 44" X 44" and they fit perfectly). thanks for the nice comment :)
HawkFan Thanks, Audrey!
Wow, love the creamy yellow and the red and white prairie points. You nailed it also with the turquoise. Just waiting for a grandbaby...someday... to make something like this.
Charlie Thank you! Hard to capture color correctly on the Internet - the "turquoise" is actually a minty green This was a fun one to make!
I think this is one of my most favorite quilts you've made yet Wendy! It is just so sweet and old fashioned....I adore the yellow and the prairie points!
I can't tell you how much I love this quilt. It looks great on the site but better in person. See it is your quilts like this one that makes me want to be a better quilter.
Wow, cute story & photos!!!
I love the border with the little points!
I just LOVE those pictures of you with the baby. So darling! And that quilt is a perfect match for that beautiful baby. Way to go Auntie!
Terryt1955 LOL thanks, Terry (pssst...the mom is Kip's cousin...so I guess that makes Althea a second cousin?)
Yeah I know but Auntie sounds so much nicer than Cuz!
Love all the new pics-lovely family and what a sweetheart she is! The quilt looks great in its new home!
Althea looks great with her new quilt. She and the quilt are absolutely adorable.
The most beautiful baby and such a lovely quilt for her to cherish forever.
Beautiful pictures of you with the baby! So sweet
