Another finished quilt top




I managed to get finished today this quilt top which is for a commissioned quilt. Its based on my previous "Sophie's Dreams" quilt, using a similar colour palette but with a different colour balance and many different fabric prints. I'm happy with how its turning out :-) I'm hoping to get the baby girl's name appliqued on the backing and get it basted tonight so that I can start quilting it on Sunday after picking up some natural cotton thread tomorrow.

Not sure what I'm going to call this one - I don't want to call it Sophie's Dreams 2! Any ideas?


I also decided to join up with Elizabeth's Kaleidoscope Quiltalong which I'm really excited about!






These are the fabrics I have picked - I'm going to do the baby size quilt for a little boy.


What do you think? I love them!!!

Ooh, i love those fabrics, especially that car print on the top.

Maybe name the quilt after the person it's going to? Like, Sally's Dreams (or whatever) so it still has a reference to the original but isn't just "sophie's dreams 2". That's the best suggestion I have, I'm terrible at naming quilts. I'm going to be basting my first quilt tonight and it's so far named Snuggle Quilt because it's made of snuggle flannel.

Oh, yay, I'm so glad you're joining in!! I'll you you to the blogroll pronto :) And I agree with Jennifer about the naming, that's a good idea. I am also totally awful at quilt naming!

Good for you! What a lovely quilt for a little girl. What about something summery like Strawberry Summer? The colors that strike me are the pinks, greens and whites which (at this time of year) are strawberries. It nearly works with this week being Bord Bia's strawberry week :)
