Sorry about the blog silence! We’ve been sick here, two colds in three weeks! Ugh!
Anyhoo, I have some recent finishes to show you!
First off is a baby quilt I’ve made for a baby to be born in June. I had this Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric in stash I purchased from Patchwork Plus during their January sale. I also had a Sidekick Ruler that I wanted to use to make some equilateral triangles.
After cutting out what felt like hundreds of triangles and matching a ton of points I had a lovely quilt top. I was even crazy enough to make a pieced back for it as well! I took it over to a friends house to use a longarm to quilt it!
This was my first time using a longarm, and my friend couldn’t help but exclaim that I was a natural. It’s easy to act like a natural when you watch enough YouTube videos I free-handed a loopy meander all over the quilt. It surprisingly took a little over an hour to quilt the whole thing. I’m used to things taking a bit longer on a domestic sewing machine!
I made the mistake of taking the quilt downstairs in front of my boys. They are in a huge Caterpillar phase right now, and Malcolm insisted on playing on it. I’ll rewash it before I gift it!
Thankfully I had enough fabric in stash to machine bind the quilt. I was left over from my Crosspatch bag!
