A Lilly Pulitzer/Judi Madsen Baby Quilt Mash-Up!

Oh my goodness I love this quilt!  When Jessica (the Lilly Pulitzer fabric Queen) dropped it off and I saw those big blank 'windows', I knew exactly what I was going to do!  

I recently ordered Judi Madsen's new book 'Quilting Wide Open Spaces' and have been itching to attempt a few things from it.  

The 'In the Meadow' designs paired well with the bright floral fabrics, which also feature a few butterflies itself.  

The genius part about this quilting design is that due to its over sized design, there's no need to worry about resizing it to fit your block.  Just print off the pages from her CD, slip under your quilt and trace.  I used a water soluble marker.  No math, no lining up just perfectly...pretty simple.

I kept the quilting very straightforward in the pieced 9-patches, because the fun fabrics are the star there, and not the quilting.  That's where my "Judi Madsen" stops, and my "keep it simple" approach stepped in.  
Ha ha!

A solid back!
Now I want one for myself :)
