Watch Me Grow

Megan sent this adorable quilt that she made for her own new arrival.   The centre is a panel and Megan came up with her own pieced border to complete the quilt top.  The panel is called "Watch Me Grow" from Northcott fabrics, and is intended to be used for milestone photos.  The panel came with other items including words and numbers that you can add to the photos.

Megan knew she wanted custom quilting including modern feathers and we discussed a few different plans before settling on the design.  I wanted to make sure that the quilting didn't overwhelm the delicate nature of the panel that was so appealing.

I enhanced the printed wreath with additional quilted feathers, outlined the animals and crosshatched the background.  



The border received piano keys and some continuous curves and stitch in the ditch around the blocks.

I also love the sweet backing fabric Megan selected from the same collection.  



  1. A delightful panel and accompanying words, and your quilting is the icing, perfect to show the delicate leaves and the group of animals.This will be a quilt that will grow with the new arrival.

  2. I love the panel but the feathers around the wreath are an inspiration.
