In February 2016, I was shown a picture that inspired this quilt. Unfortunately I was not able to track down a pattern at the time. Tonight, August 22, 2020, I was searching again to try and find the original picture to give credit and I found a pattern. So if anyone wants to know, a pattern can be found on Etsy at Nellie’s Needle Quilt Patterns.
Nellie’s Needle is not the original picture I worked from as it had a different border and was monotone. But, as I have said in an earlier post, it is much easier to work from a pattern than create your own. So I would buy the pattern.
I used two layers of batting for more loft in this quilt. In the future, I would use extra loft batting. But, the two layers give extra weight to the baby blanket which might be nice if used on the ground. I quilted using a bubble or pebble pattern around the appliqués.
The diaper bag was from a pattern by The Creative Thimble. There are pockets on front, back and pleated pockets on both sides and one pocket inside. The inside has a large center divide to make two compartments. The appliqués on front and back are smaller version of design on quilt.
