Chris's quilt

Chris emailed me after seeing Marianna's quilt. She wanted a similar feel for her baby quilt: loose quilting and an edge to edge design. She left the quilting design up to me. I saw some paisley quilting online and decided to give it a try, along with some swirls and a sort of swirly flower design.

I alternated between the three patterns, trying to vary them as I went along. The best part about this design is that there is no marking involved. I started in the middle and worked my way out and around, spacing out the floral swirl and paisleys and using the small swirl to get me to where I wanted to start the next design.

Thanks Chris!


  1. I am speechless!!!! My quilt came out great, the perfect feminine design, I love it!!!
    Thank YOU!!!! Chris

  2. Don't lose that design. I really like that one and it si a very cute quilt.

  3. To give credit, the name of the pattern is Orion's Star by Eleanor Burns. This was made from scraps of previous baby quilts. Seem to have lots of pink these days, expecting my third grandaughter. Looks like the "official" new baby quilt will be soft grays and yellows, nice change!
