Shining Through Baby Quilt Finished

I made this Shining Through quilt top in 2022, did the quilting and binding during last year's WIPS-B-GONE challenge, and finally took pictures of it last weekend. It has been a slow process, but I can finally share the finish here!

The fold lines were very stubborn, which makes sense since it has been folded and stacked with a few other quilts since it was finished back in the fall 😅 

The trip to the beach for pictures was my first visit for the year, and it was fabulous. See that beautiful blue sky? It's a good thing I enjoyed it then because we haven't seen it again since I took these pictures on Sunday. Instead, we've had nothing but RDF (rain, drizzle, and fog) all week.

The Shining Through pattern is available in my shop. This version of the baby quilt size is made with the Citified fabric line from Island Batik. The pattern also includes instructions for a throw size.

I used a pretty blue solid from Northcott for the backing, and, of course, there's an off-cut of Warm and Natural batting inside. I love baby quilts for using up smaller pieces of batting! 

This double loop quilting is quick and fun to stitch. I used Aurifil 50 wt 2311 to match the background on the front, with the bonus that it shows up really nicely on the blue backing.

I took these pictures with the quilt hanging on my photography backdrop stand and I loved how the front shone through the back in the sun.

I cut the fabric for the binding back when I cut everything for the quilt top (two years ago). I had to dig a little to find it when it was time to bind the quilt, since my sewing stuff had all been moved from the kitchen to the sewing room since then, but I found it safely tucked into a box on a shelf in my cutting table.

The baby size of Shining Through really is a quick sew, unless you're like me and leave it sitting around for months rather than working on it, lol. Get the pattern in my shop and see if you can finish it faster than I did 😂

  1. So glad you took advantage of the beautiful day and weather last Sunday, and I hope the RDF gives you more breaks and blue skies soon. The quilt looks great and the double loop quilting finishes it off very nicely. :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
