Here is my new quilt. I finished over the long weekend. I learned many lessons on this quilt. I love free motion quilting. I guess about halfway through this quilt I really “got it” Next one will be better certainly. It does take a little time to get the feel of the motion combined with moving the large thick fabric..
I do however love love love stippled, wrinkled crinkled quilts. 100 % cotton of course. My favorites used to be the Country Living quilts. I just loved those.
This was intended for a new little baby boy to be born in Nov. I am just not sure if it is gift worthy. As much as I love it, I am not sure.
Also, I sewed my binding on backwards(applied by machine, hand stitched.)… whoops!! I also did not blind stitch it, (I don’t know where my mind was) I think I just wanted it done and I could not wait to wash it..
I used my scraps to make 2 different bindings and I like it. I love my back, thrifted sheet and leftover scrapes. I have used that green polka dot sheet in so many projects it is just not funny anymore.
So, overall, I do love my little quilt. I love that I learned quite a bit. It is not perfect, but to me it is charming, warm and cozy. I can not wait to make my next one.
