Baby Barks Quilt

I am pleased to share with you this lovely, gender neutral, baby quilt.  It is rather unique in that it is actually a two sided quilt.   Rather than custom quilting one side and having it look strange on the other side, I chose to do an all over design that would compliment both sides of the quilt.  I used a design called Arrowheads.

Here is a close up look at the beautiful texture that the design created.  I used two layers of batting (Hobbes 80/20 and a high loft polyester) to give lots of dimension.

And now the back.  There is a lot of white space which really helps to see the quilting.

It is important to always label your quilt but this two sided design made that impossible.  Having a label on one side would detract from the quilt itself.  I saw somewhere online where a quilter stitched words into the binding instead of adding a label so that is what I did.  I used a very subtle tone on tone so that it would almost disappear into the binding.  It says “Made with love 2016 Grandma Debbie”.
