Lily & Will Commission Quilt – Complete!

Posted on December 7th, by Amy in finished quilt. 35 comments

These fabrics were begging for a traditional design, and so, I looked through traditional blocks to find the right combination for this quilt.  In the end I decided on these:

It looks as though it is set on point, when in fact it is not!  The blocks between the stars are four patches, with triangles in the corners to rotate.  The blocks finished at 6″, and the quilt overall is 40″ square.

I just love the colors in this group!

I quilted tight, around a few of  the stars.  I really wanted it to be comfortable and not too quilted for the most part, but the straight lines were not enough between the blocks.

The borders also got special treatment.  Swirls and loops to fill the space!

I am loving this quilt!   I had so much fun designing with these fabrics, they are beautiful and soft, with just the right balance of color.

I cut one more table runner while this quilt was in the wash.  I love my Go! Cutter – makes triangles quick and simple to cut!  What are you working on?

Happy quilting~

    Very clever block! Colors are soft and sweet. I’m working on a quilt for my stepmonster who is ill. It’s my own design and I really want to finish it, but I can’t decide how to quilt it! Also making a dress for teen daughter – an upcycled, re-designed party dress that will be so stinkin cute!

    As I’m a “bright-fabrics-please” person, I might not have picked this line of fabric. But I absolutely LOVE this baby-quilt! It looks soft, sweet, inviting – gourgeous! So the young lady who will be the proud owner is going to be very happy, I’m sure ;-))

    I really like the brown and pinks in this quilt and your stitching to add the name and birth — really beautiful touch! I am sure that mom and baby will adore this quilt for many many many years!

    So cute! I love the colors and you did a really nice job. I’ve been working on an I-Spy blanket one for each of my boys. Hopefully I can get them done by Christmas.

    I just finished a Lily and Will baby quilt as well, but I am going to wait to give it to the family until he/she is born so I can embroider the name and birthday on the top. Such a nice touch!

    Your blog is very inspiring. While I love to work with textiles, I have a high level job that leaves me with less time than I’d like for doing creative activities. I’ve had a small quilt in the blocks stage for 2 months and I’m looking forward to the break between Christmas and New Year to put it together and maybe even quilt it!
