(Don’t I have the best assistant ever? And thankfully she has a thing for gold shoes as well…)
I told you earlier that one of my goals this year was to do a bit more quilting. It’s been kind of a full-circle thing, because baby blankets and quilts were some of the first things I started sewing again after my first was born. And it’s been really enjoyable to have a quilting project going that I can pick up and leave in between garment sewing.
This one was a baby quilt for a cousin’s baby shower last weekend….and I still have one more cut out like it for another baby girl. I love easy quilt sewing and coin quilts are great for that reason. Plus the fact that they are great scrap busters…which is always a good thing. (I have a scrap-hoarding problem and way too many scraps right now….it’s bad.)
I lined the back with a grey linen-look-alike (it’s a quilting cotton) and I love the coral binding and the gray backing together.
The quilting was just horizontal lines that were 1 inch apart, done on my machine with my walking foot.
And the finished quilt is 45 inches by 45 inches square, my favorite size to make for a baby.
Happy Memorial Day everyone….any fun plans?
