I finished and gifted my latest quilt to a new baby girl, Kalihna. My niece loves blue so I bought a fat quarter bundle of the Bluebird line from Cotton and Steel and got to it.
Spread out and pinned, I was really pleased at how the pink stood out and that it was very flat with no puckers or wavy edges.
My sewing machine got very cranky during the quilting process and I wasn't sure it was going to last until the end, but luckily it did and I did a simple cross hatch quilt on the diagonal.
I was pleased at how the pink popped and caught my eye.
I had some lime green alphabet fabric to use as binding, and again, it seemed to brighten some of the more somber blues.
The backing is a Heather Ross print, name unknown, but it is absolutely perfect for a baby girl quilt.
Here it is posed again on a camelback trunk that's been in the family for a long time. Since my in-laws have lived on this farm since 1803, it has to be older than that. I bet it could tell some stories.
I'm so pleased to get my sewing oomph back and have another plan for a quilt gently percolating in the back of my mind!
