Waiting for Max....

The quilt is finished and washed...
I feel you have been given most of the details...
The design is my own...

The clouds are needle turn applique...a knit waffle fabric....lots of texture.

The quilting is hand quilted with Linen thread and some perle cotton {Valdani}

The backing fabric is a Japanese velveteen from Kokka...

and the label is on the front!  

Baby's first and middle name {lets hope mom and dad don't change their minds}

Maxwell August and the year of his birth 2013....

here are the final pictures...

  2. Max's quilt is absolutely beautiful. I love all the texture, it looks as though it's made from a cloud. The bird print on the back is poetry.

  14. Oh my goodness! I just stopped by your blog, and seeing these pictures larger on my computer rather than my little phone was such a treat. The RAINDROPS!!! I didn't even notice them on instagram. They are my favorite detail. Oh, this is just too sweet. Great job!
