This weekend, in between packing boxes and drinking iced lattes to stay cool, I made a second Peanut to accompany the first. Both are now safely packed up and on their way to Minnesota to meet two soon-to-be-born babies!
Back in February, my friends had the most adorable baby girl named Luna Maria. I, of course, wanted to make a quilt to mark the special occasion. Using this tutorial from the Purl Bee, which I'd been eyeing for quite some time, I created this zig-zag quilt for her.
I stuck to solids on the front (most of them from my stash) and a 1920s/30s reproduction kids' print on the back that I picked up at G Street Fabrics. I quilted it on my machine, used a solid turquoise fabric for the binding, and added a hand-embroidered tag to the back with Luna's name and birthday.
I really love working with solids (and half-square triangles!), and was so pleased with how this quilt turned out.
