I just love this quilt made by Cheri.  I had a smile on my face the whole time I was quilting it.

Cheri had a really good idea of what she wanted when she brought this quilt over.  She wanted to see the Bauhaus Baby panto, and we didn't need to look any further.  Perfect choice!  We ended up using So Fine # 510 in a color called Grotto.  

I think everyone knows by now that I personally am not a huge fan of Cuddle/Minkee fabrics.  I think they feel slippery, but kids and adult seem to love cuddling under them.  I have to admit that the grey Cuddle on the back does look fabulous!  

Cheri made this quilt to keep at her house for her grandson to use when he is there.  She did make it a little bigger than the pattern so that there is room for Grandma to cuddle under it too!Cheri is always great at remembering the names of patterns, designers and fabric collections - this pattern is called "Tagged" from the book Growing Up Modern by Allison Harris.  The fabric is Moda's "Mixed Bag."

  1. great quilt and good choice of quilting design. If your customer has not yet bound this quilt, I suggest she round out the corners (I use a dinner plate) and cut her binding on the bias, then she can do the binding w/o having to miter the corners and thereby eliminate the bulk. I have three grandchildren, currently 5 1/2 y/o (triplets) and have made many a quilt with a minky back - struggled with the bindings until I read this tip - wish I could tell you where I got it from, its been several years now.
