Ballerina Quilt

I finished the quilt for my hairdresser who had a baby girl.  I showed the fabric that I used a couple of posts ago.  My mom gets her hair cut by her too and wanted to make a quilt for her but wasn’t able to because of her back so I made it for her.  She has been so wonderful going to my mom’s house to cut her hair when normally people come to her.  My mom (and I) really appreciate her generosity.

I used a pattern called The Big EZ which makes a pretty big quilt.  It was the perfect pattern for the fabric I wanted to use but too big for a baby quilt.  So I did the math and made everything smaller.  It worked out great!

I quilted it with an all over stipple.

She also has twin girls who are so excited about their new baby sister so I made them each a pillowcase that match the baby’s quilt.  I used this method to make the pillowcases as well as French seams to finish everything off.

My mom and I invited them over to my mom’s house to give them the gifts.  They loved them!  My mom’s surgery for her back is on Monday.  I am nervous but hopeful that this surgery will allow her to be active again.
