This magical quilt is just an explosion of cheerful color! “Garden Party” features seven lovely ladybugs enjoying a day in the garden. Yellow hollyhocks with hand-embroidered French knot centers and orange bell-shaped flowers sway on graceful stems against a black and white background. The ladybugs crawl and fly about.

When I began this quilt, my intent was to have one stem of green leaves and the ladybugs- but, as is often the case with me, the quilt “grew”! Many hours later, the garden had bright blooms. It’s definitely a fantasy garden of “Alice” proportions- either the leaves and flowers are much smaller than they would be in real life, or the ladybugs are huge- I’ll let you decide for yourself (personally, I love the idea of huge ladybugs)!

The quilt is backed in crisp white, and the leaves and blooms are heavily quilted. The leaves, stems and ladybugs are zig-zag stitched at the edge for a smooth finish. The flowers are all raw-edge appliquéd for a softly frayed finish. I bound the quilt with a tiny red and black geometric print and used Warm & White brand 100% cotton batting, gently laundering the quilt upon completion to allow the flower edges to fray and the batt to shrink its standard 2 to 4%.

38.25 x 39” (97.2 x 99.1 cm), “Garden Party” will be enjoyed by your baby girl from infancy through toddlerhood and beyond. – it’s also a stunning wall quilt for the nursery or any room in your home(or office!)

I've installed a hang sleeve, in the same crisp white as the backing, which will not interfere with use as a blanket.
Hanging instructions are included.

Signed, labeled and ready to ship. This quilt ships via USPS Priority Mail.

All Moon Spirit Studios baby quilts are made from quality, 100% cotton fabrics, pieced and quilted with cotton thread. All fabrics are pre-washed and dried prior to making the quilt. Quilt bindings are a double layer of fabric, and are hand-stitched to the back of the quilt. Quilts are gently laundered upon completion.

Please wash and dry your quilt on gentle, cool cycles. For maximum color retention, line dry and keep from prolonged exposure to direct sun.
