|Holy crap try to avert your eyes from the glow of my winter white legs!|
But I soldiered on because I wanted to show you the top of the Baby Bella Quilt that I finished this week
|I found one patch of pristine snow left|
This quilt is bright, cheerful, and feels super scrappy fun! I think it will be perfect for the baby on the way. I debated about putting white sashing between the blocks, but after a consult on the design wall (I consult with my friend 1000 miles away - thank god for FB!) we both decided that no sashing was needed. Without the sashing you can see triangles and awesome shapes everywhere!
I did run into some problems with this one. I have quite a few bulky seams.
No mystery here, I was rushing, having too much fun and wanting to see the finished top, and not paying attention as I was pressing the individual blocks. But have no fear, I have appropriately reprimanded myself and next time I will be more careful :)
The batting has been pieced (a little spring cleaning and piecing of batting craps meant I did not need to buy any new batting) and backing ready (going flannel like I always do for baby quilts) so now I just need to decide on how to quilt. Your suggestions?
Orangie helped me take pictures this morning. He has a spring in his step!
|Wow! He looks like a giant in this picture!|
Time for basting, better get at it. Your thoughts on a quilting approach would be much appreciated and I would love to know what are you working on this Wednesday!?
I'm Liking up today at Freshly Pieced!
