Heidi Grace Baby Quilts

  I have been sitting on this beautiful Heidi Grace fabric from the Botanical Garden collection.  I never knew what to make out of it.  After much thought and frustration with failing designs I ended up with two really cute baby girl quilts.

  The first one is kinda a stack and whack of sorts.  I like adding white to quilts now because it makes them brighter and for some reason I end up liking them better.  The backing is a really nice fabric from the Wrenly collection by Valorie Wells, MammaBird.

  I top stitched the quilt in a botanical flowers edge to edge design.  Quite fitting considering the name of the fabric.

  The second quilt is just something that came to be.  I added this and added that, put it up on my design wall and in the end it turned out pretty nice.  The backing is minky.  I love the feel of minky but it is so hard to use on a long arm machine.  I tried so hard and it still ended up stretched.  It gives the quilt a more "puckered" look.  The quilt is really nice and cozy in person but doesn't photograph so well.  I was excited to use the edge to edge of dragonflies and flowers.  It makes the quilt even more pretty and girly.
