I finally finished the baby quilt for which I showed a completed back in May and started quilting in July…
It’s a fairly simple design using squares cut from two ombre fabrics by V&Co and the Cookie cutters cinnamon Cotton + Steel print from Kim Kight’s Cookie book collection. I chose the ombre fabrics because I thought they were a nice match for the colours the parents used for their wedding and the baby’s birth announcement.
For the quilting I chose a much denser pattern than I usually do. My new sewing machine makes quilting so much more pleasurable that I didn’t mind sewing this many lines. The downside was that I ran out of thread halfway through and had to buy more which caused further delays. As I was doing the quilting I worried that it would be too much but now that it’s finished I am pleased with the result.
For the back I used the leftovers from the front and the child’s initial was made from the fabric that was also used for the binding.
I prefer to bind by hand as I find it a relaxing activity and love the look when it is finished. I must be getting quicker as I reached the end much sooner than anticipated! Which was probably the only thing that went fast in the creation of this quilt…
Now, onto the next one!
I love this colour combination, and chevron quilting is my new go-to design for QAYG. It makes such a lovely texture, doesn’t it?
Yes, the texture is lovely and it adds a bit more interest than simple straight line quilting.
It may have taken some time, but it was certainly worth the effort. I really like everything about it, and I know the parents will be pleased.
It was already gifted and I believe it was certainly appreciated. 🙂
Nice! I really like the quilting you did on it.
Thank you! I am glad I was a bit more adventurous than simple straight lines this time.
