Pattern Description:

Imagine you are perched in a tree with fairy lights blinking around you in the branches. This sweet fantasy is captured in a little quilt.There are 47 fairy lights on the front of the quilt, each sewn with a colorful center and a cream background. The cream edges of the lights are cut to fray and curl and give a soft folk look to the quilt.

Fairy Lights baby quilt is a whole cloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. The outer binding of the quilt is the back pink fabric brought to the front and hand stitched all around.
