I made this quilt out of some of the scraps from my vintage linens from THE SHOP. I really liked some of the colors and patterns in the linens that I had, so I decided to try it out. I kinda LOVE the way these linens are in a quilt. Because they are used and washed multiple times, the quilt is THE SOFTEST thing I have ever made. It is so snuggly and soft. Seriously!!!
ANYWAY...I used THIS pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.
I quilted it using masking tape and grid quilting (nothing new there). Seriously in 2011 I am going to perfect my free motion quilting. SERIOUSLY!!!!
The backing fabric is my favorite. It is SOOO soft. There is also a strip of "stacked coins" pieced into the back. I don't usually piece the back, but I liked that little addition.
Since it is not really a "manly boy" quilt, I didn't think it was quite right for Little Baby E (who will arrive in less than 2 weeks). SOOO I put it in the Etsy shop. We shall see if anyone loves it as much as I do:) I have a few more finished projects to share and a couple little cuties in the works, but I am still getting back into this century and need to go get caught up on some more important computer stuff.....like blog stalking and online shopping:)
