A Llama ๐Ÿผ Baby ๐Ÿ‘ถ Quilt ๐Ÿผ

Our DD1 is expecting a baby girl!!! This will be our first grandchild! DD1 especially loves llamas, so I made this baby quilt for her out of llama fabric and coordinates:
Quilt Info:
Maker: Nancy of Grace and Peace Quilting
Pattern: Tessa by Kitchen Table Quilting
Size: 40" X 45"
Batting: Quilters Dream Batting 100% Cotton Request
Thread: Glide--Linen
Quilting: Cupid
Interesting Info: I made this as part of the Tessa QAL, held May 18 through June 19, 2020.
One tip that comes with the pattern is to make the same colors go the same direction, as much as possible. As you can see here ⤵️ I did that with the yellow fabrics:
I hosted a baby shower for her over the weekend, and gifted this quilt then! Here are a couple of additional items made for the shower. A Minkee/Cuddle large quilt, small blankie and double gauze swaddle blanket: ⤵️
A garland made from ribbons, rickrack and fabric strips: ⤵️
And goodie bags, made by my sister, Quilter Bonnie! ⤵️
I'm glad to say we were able to hold the baby shower outdoors and had pleasant weather! We enjoyed seeing and talking with all the guests, and especially the guests of honor, the mother- and father-to-be!
Grace & peace!!! ~Nancy

  11. It's so much fun to enjoy your quilt, events, decorations in celebration of Grand baby #1. Thank goodness for being able to enjoy this even vicariously. Your quilting design is terrific -- hearts but not in your face. Hopefully you'll be able to have some snuggle time when she makes her appearance.

  15. Very pretty quilt. I used that same color scheme a couple of years ago for a baby quilt for a niece. Grey and yellow and white - excellent pairings.

  20. Hi Nancy, that is a really lovely quilt and the tip to make the blocks of the same colour go in the same direction is a really good one. It really helps to unify the quilt. I'm glad that you had a great baby shower! Take care.

  22. Love your Llama quilt, plus love the minkee quilts and swaddle blanket. I have yet to try sewing with minkee, maybe one day. I may think on it, and try to make a small blankie quilt, like you have. Everything looks so fun for a new baby!

  24. The quilting looks great on this, too, Nancy — I love the design you chose. Is that Linen color of Glide more of a beige or a pale gray? It looks perfect on all of the different fabrics. Thanks for linking up with Long Arm Learning!
