Quilted!

By | September 5, 2018

I’m so pleased. This past weekend I got in some serious quilting time. I got 5 baby/crib sized quilts FINALLY quilted. I love piecing, but sadly the actual quilting isn’t my favourite part of the entire process.

One of the quilts I quilted is this one:

I must confess that the quilting is very simple. I used the walking foot on my Husqvarna Sapphire and a stitch that produced a gentle curvy line. It went very smoothly and quickly. I think it complements the straight lines in the block nicely and adds a bit of interest.

A close up of the quilting:

Yes, those light blue lines are marks  from a crayola washable fine line marker. I’ve found that they are indeed true to their word and that the marker does wash out. I hope I’m not proved to be wrong on this though I’ve used those markers many times and have never known them to remain after the quilt has been washed.

I found this quilt on the Patch the Giraffe blog. The blog hasn’t been that active lately but the pattern is still a great one.

I’ve selected the blue material in the centre of the quilt for the binding fabric.  It’s cut out and ready to go on.  My plan is that the binding is on by the end of the week.

I’m linking this post up with many of the blog parties listed on my Quilt Parties page.

      I’m looking forward to getting them done – sooner rather than later! I too love the fabrics in this quilt. They all really pop yet work nicely together!

      Thank you for the opportunity to share my quilt at Wednesday Wait Loss. I am very happy with how this quilt is turning out. It’s next in line for binding so it won’t be long until it’s done!

    Hi Yummy LOL nice to drop in and spend some time reading your colourful blog. Like what your baby crib quilts and I think that wave is really nice and effective instead of just in the ditch. Cheers Glenda
