Micah’s Quilt

Micah's Quilt

This quilt is for a sweet baby girl named Micah (not so much a baby anymore! She’s one year old now). Her parents are friends of mine from college. They live in Austin and their taste is modern, hip, and maybe a little bit whimsical (check out Micah’s stylish nursery). I stayed away from the traditional baby girl look with cuteness overload and lots of pink. The color palette is soft and feminine, but not too juvenile.

I used little pieces of some favorite prints – precious bits of Heather Ross’s long out of print Munki Munki and some of her more recent Far Far Away 3 line. There is also some Melody Miller and Flea Market Fancy.

I quilted it with an overall stipple and tiny pebbles on the print squares.

It took me ages to make this quilt because I was just not sewing much last year after my son was born. I’m glad its finished so I can mail it to its new home. Happy first birthday, little Micah!

    Yes Quiltcon was awesome. Heather and all the Modern Quilt Guild directors really know how to throw a quilting convention.
    The Austin Modern Quilt Guild really excited to have Quiltcon here. Many of our members were volunteers.
