Baby Girl Quilt Using the new Bosskut Gazelle designs
The new Bosskut Designs just came out and it inspired me to make a baby quilt for a little girl. I used the bottle and the rattle for most of my blocks.
I added a baby face pattern I made up for one of the blocks. I made a second block that just said Baby Girl. I thought these two blocks would add a little to the other designs. I think that is why I love my Gazelle. I like to take what there is and then add my own touch—just like most crafters do. The whole idea is just to have fun!!! I love to have fun. Below are some pictures of my new baby girl quilt. The quilt has been pieced but now needs to be quilted.
Baby Face Block
This block I machine appliqued like the rest of the blocks. I hand embroidered the mouth, ears and eyes.
The cheeks I did using a crayon technique I learned years ago. I take an applique transfer mat and lay my iron on it a few seconds. I then take my crayon and smear a little of the wax on the hot spot on the mat. I take a small piece of cotton fabric and rub it in the crayon. I then rub the color in the cheek area.
Once I get it the consistency I want it I heat set it with my iron. I like to think of it as shading and highlighting for fabric. Enjoy!
