Ice Cream Cones & Flowers

I made this quilt for my friend Wendy’s first baby girl. The pattern was designed by Sarah Fielke in her book Material Obsession One . The pattern is  Nosegay but rather than flowers I thought it looked like Ice cream Cones for a beautiful baby girl.  I hand pieced this quilt and then had it long arm quilted!

Zara's Ice Cream 2

I chose pink polka dots for the ice cream and a candy strip for the cones.  The squares of various colours represent jellies!

I used the  various jelly squares to make a nine patch for the corner borders.  I was very happy with the way it turned out and it was very well received. The blocks are 12 inches with 2 inch sashing and 6 inch border finish.  The fabrics are from my stash.

I have also finished by 12 Fussy Square Blocks for a second round of the Fussy Square Swap hosted by the lovely Amanda @ What the Bobbin.

Fussy Squares Round 2

The squares are 4.5inch paper pieced with 4 inch finish.  I love paper piecing it just gives so much accuracy.  I hope my bee friends enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them.  So much fun!!!
