I have just loved touching these voile fabrics so much that I actually finished another baby quilt in three days!
I'm in love! Why did it take me so long to try this magical fabric?
To make sure it was really solid I quilted both in the ditch and 1/4" from the horizontal seams on each side, since I had some tension issues when piecing. I didn't want the quilting to be too dense though to keep it nice and fluffy. It is backed and bound in the pastry print in magenta, and I used an Aurifil pink of the same colour for the bobbin, so there aren't big noticeable lines on the back. On the front I used an Aurifil cream colour in 28 weight. The bricks finish at 3 x 6 inches.
I did get a little mixed up with the order of the bricks, probably due to a less than great makeshift design board and being tired at the end of the pregnancy, so there are some prints touching each other. While this non-perfection bothers a good Virgo like myself, when I realized what I had done I was NOT about to pick apart the stitches. It's beautiful anyway!
I am seriously considering buying another, bigger bundle in a different colourway and making one for myself! And then just wrapping it around my naked self like a toga for the rest of the summer...
Here's another finish from the last few days - my hand-stitched scrappy pillow for the nursery.
So what's this big WIP you ask?
Oh, just a little creature that is 41 weeks + 2 days old that doesn't seem to want to come out and join us! Apparently I have a pretty comfy womb!
Keep ya posted...
