Quilt: Pink Polka Dots

Share it Please

A few months ago, my sister asked me to make a baby quilt for her best friend. The friend is pregnant with her first child, a girl. I was more than happy to make it and told my sister to pick a quilt design from the Moda Bake Shop. There were two top contenders (here and here) so I combined design elements from both of them (hearts from one; the words and simple form from the other) to make the quilt.

I had a lot of fun quilting the hearts in the white border and think that the jumbo white ric rac is a fun tactile addition. (If I were the baby, I would find major comfort in sucking my thumb while playing with the ric rac. Just sayin'.) The quilt is backed with a super-soft fabric because baby quilts are meant for cuddling. The final size was roughly 40" square.

I hope she likes the quilt and that the baby uses it to literal pieces.


  1. can't wait to give this to her. should be about the 27th or so this month.

  2. I LOVE the words. If we decide to do a trade sometime in the future, I would love a word or two. :-)
