|Finally, I get to make a mess! Well, really, it’s a quilt.
It’s a baby quilt for my new grand niece. She’s due any day now.
|It’s sewn together on the sewing machine.|
|Then I quilted it together by hand with embroidery thread.|
|This is the back side. I love the digital effect.|
|The front is linen.|
|I used a floral skirt and beige pants. The beige pants were actually really nice but had a pleated front – such a shame. The stripes are from a pair of XL capri pants. Another monstrosity taken off the street. You’re welcome.|
|The backing is a really soft flannel.|
|I sewed around the inside of each square with different colored thread.|
|I wish I had only used dark colors but I’m not unhappy with it over all.|
|It’s the quickest quilt I’ve ever made. I made the whole thing in less than a week. I’d love to see it after it’s been washed a few times. I think (and hope) it will age really nicely.|
