BQF: Baby Quilt Entry, Sunflower Baby

When I was just new to blogging I remember entering
I can't believe that it's been five years now!
does an amazing job putting this event on!



I wanted to enter a baby quilt that I made for my first grand child.
The pattern is called Sunflower Baby by Ashton Publications
 and the size of the quilt is 42 x 46.


I used Pam Kitty Morning fabrics along with some background fabrics
from Carrie Nelson aka Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. 

The pattern said (read) to round off the Dresden blades on the
corners of the quilt... but I just couldn't do it!

I experimented and found a way to save them. 
I hand blanket stitched around the face of the sunflowers, leaves
 and the corner Dresden blades.

Two of the sunflower faces have freckles and two do not...
representing mom and dad and the possibility of 
Evie taking after one or the other parent.
Side note:
The binding was started and stopped at each edge and the
Dresden fans were faced with another set of fans.
Then the backing was turned under and stitched.
The blanket has been washed no less than 50 times and is
holding up perfectly well.

Take a look at the other quilts in the festival here.
and don't forget to be there on voting day!
