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!
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.
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!!!
