I SOMEHOW managed to finish another quilt....I was on a bit of a time crunch. This one is for Pink A Night To Remember, which is an auction for Breast Cancer that my Aunt helps put on. I donated 2 quilts last year, but only managed one baby quilt this year. Actually I tried to work on a different bigger quilt, but I kinda ruined it....so this is what they got this year. ANYWAY...
The fabric is one of my favorites, Riley Blake, but I am not sure what it is called.....Delicious is what I call it:) Is it not super cute boy fabric???? Love it!!!
I grid quilted it....I promise to try free motion again someday. I did do something a little different this time though. NO TAPE...I used the little extension do-hickey that goes on my walking foot. Worked like a charm.
The backing is my favorite...I pretty much love the stars!!!
It matches baby E's room pretty well....too bad it can't stay there:) I promise the A is coming soon....it is on order.
The pattern is from THIS book. Thanks Marcie!!! This is the same pattern I used for Baby E's quilt...different fabric though. If I EVER actually finish it I will share a picture.
This might be my last accomplishment for a while, so I am sitting here enjoying the finish....kinda like I just won a state championship....small things:)
SOOOO.... my computer has been out of commission for a few weeks...YES WEEKS!!! and I have not been able to post, or look at blogs, or even access many of my patterns. YUCK!!! But a while back I finished 2011's very first finished quilt.
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:)
