Sending Love & Best Wishes to a New Baby and Their Parents! Create a cherished keepsake with the Loving Wishes quilt pattern that is adorned with loving hearts, sweet stars and dainty paths criss-crossing, perfect for welcoming a new bundle of joy!
A new baby is coming to our extended family, so I had to design and make a special new baby quilt for this little one – the Loving Wishes Quilt. Our wonderful nephew and his wife are expecting their first child, and guess what? It’s a girl!!!!
Loving Wishes Quilt Pattern – So Sweet
The beautiful Loving Wishes Quilt Pattern captures the feeling of wishing all the best for a little one. With dainty paths criss-crossing in the background, hearts are the center focus of each star. Gingham accents this quilt wonderfully and a sweet border surrounds the quilt. Capture the feeling of wishing all the best for a little one.
A Heart Quilt Pattern for All Ages
Shown here in pinks & green, this would also be darling in baby blues, or whatever color combination you like! You can make one of the larger sizes for a toddler or young child, or make a beautiful bed quilt for a charming farmhouse look. Pretty in pastels, Valentine reds, summertime prints, or whatever’s in your stash.
Simply pick 3 fabrics plus a background fabric to make this lovely quilt! ♡
How I Quilted Loving Wishes
For this quilt, hearts were the way to go! You may recognize the heart designs from the quilting I did on the Sugarcoated Stars Quilt Pattern. I used this 4-Heart Stencil on the background to add the extra “love” that I wanted to give this quilt. It’s so easy to do, you simply mark the stencil design with an erasable pen for fabric and then do free-motion quilting and follow the lines.
Quilting Tip – Start in the center of the hearts, work your way out and then go back into the center.
On the border, I used this Feather Border Stencil that actually looks like hearts and compliments the 4-heart stencil perfectly. For the rest I outlined the hearts, stars and Irish chain to make them look more 3-dimensional. I kept the quilting simple, so the quilt would be soft and cuddly.
