hi[bear]nate quilt for henry

I finished baby Henry’s quilt! And none too soon, only about 4 weeks until he’s due to make his appearance! All the fabrics I used to make this quilt were from the Hello, Bear by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics collection:


The pattern I used was also a free download offered by Art Gallery Fabrics/Bonnie Christine. Beware: I encountered lots of mistakes with the pattern when I was putting the quilt together. I started emailing them over to AGF and they did update their pattern, but as I was finishing the quilt I found more mistakes and didn’t email those over. If you use your common sense when you’re putting the quilt together, you’ll be able to figure it out.

Here’s a view of the back:

The pattern says it will finish at 53″x60″, mine was pretty close to finishing that size.

I’ve been free motion quilting for a little while now, but this was the first time I attempted stippling. I did a pretty large stippling pattern, it is by no means one of those small neat ones. In the past I’ve done mostly loops for FMQ, I found as a beginner it was easier to do those and not have to worry about trying to avoid overlapping quilting. I was pretty happy with how the stippling turned out and I love the texture it affords.

Here’s a couple pictures of the quilt in the nursery. I absolutely love how it turned out!
