A finished quilt! This is my first finish for 2017 and the Q2 FAL (No. 1 on the list). So a picture heavy post ahead :)
Excluding the sneak peek pictures in my FAL post, the last I showed you of this quilt were the finished inner stars in a progress post.
I worked a lot on this quilt in the last quarter but by a hair’s breadth didn’t make it. It was quilted by then but I still had to bind it. Now it is finally done about two month over the original deadline and three month after the baby was born.
So I gifted it right away and fortunately it was really great weather so we took baby girl for a stroll through the park to take the pictures together.
Here are two more progress pictures:
And these two from the sneak peek:
I took the first pictures inside as a backup plan. This one shows the total design & layout nicely:
And here a detail shot with the backing:
And then we went on the photography adventure: Two playgrounds – on the second one I even climbed up and took the slide back down. Wow, was that a fast one :)
And lots of pictures with lovely spring flowers:
And Mama & Baby on the quilt:
And we had a curious swan come around, too. This one definitely likes pink!
Though the quilt process started a bit slow, “like a turtle waddling through peanut butter” – I loooove the final quilt. The design is great. I am really happy with the colors. And the photoshoot in such lovely weather, in good company, having so much fun – it was just the icing on the cake.

The quilt is so beautiful, Melanie! Even if it was a bit late I’m sure it was worth waiting for! Lovely photos!
This is so beautiful! I love the star pattern and the fabrics have so delicious colours! x Teje
Such a pretty, pretty quilt! I bet that baby is thinking that it was *definitely* worth the wait. A treasure, for sure!

The quilt turned out beautifully!! The shot of mom and babe? AWESOME!!!
So beautiful! Colorful and springly! I like!
It’s a beautiful quilt, and well worth waiting for.
I love this design! Surrounding the yellow and blue stars with the pink star is perfect!
Thanks a lot for the lovely quilt. Lina plays on it everyday ❤️
Gorgeous fabrics, beautiful colors and absolutely delightful quilt. You should be so happy with it – such a cheerful quilt. I love it when we quilters can actually see our quilts in use. A baby on top of a quilt is the best (and most gratifying) sight of all.
I’m back again and it is still a beauty! Congratulations on your fab finish on behalf of the global FAL 2017 hosts!
