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.
