Kirsten's Quilt

by Allie Lindahl
(Raleigh, NC)

This is the first quilt I made, for a friend who had twins this summer! I made another very similar quilt for Kirsten's sister Liliana. I thought that being twins, they'll love something with each of their own names! I love the colors in the fabric. It is very girly, yet not too baby-ish.


I mostly used Moda's Flirtations line, but also used some fabrics from Michael Miller's Baby Toile. The appliqued letters are in the "Curlz" font. I modified the pattern from one I found in Julie Popa's book "Young at Heart Quilts." She definitely has wonderful patterns!

The entire quilt was machine quilted. Freehand swirls around the border and along the polka-dotted border around "Kirsten". The rest is stiched in the ditch.

This quilt is rather large for a baby quilt, 58"x68", but I believe that it is something that they can use for years to come! It was pretty easy for my first quilt! The applique and freehand quilting were the hardest parts!

The pattern is in the "young at hearts" book she mentioned and I used my cricut to do the lettering on the quilt I made. The jasmine cartridge is what I used.

Hi! I really love your quilt and especially the font you used for the name. Where did you get the font to cut this out? Did you use the Cricut? Or some other machine? If you could email me I would appreciate it so much!! Or if anyone else on here knows I'm open to suggestions! :)

My email is: rgrimes_52501@yahoo.com

Thanks!
Terri
