Hello, All! I've decided to audition for Sewvivor hosted by Family Ever After! As many of you can imagine, it was hard to pick a project for my audition. Drumroll, please :)
My Happy-Go-Lucky Baby Quilt:
I decided to choose one that highlights a few of my favorite things:
1. The Color BLUE.
I am hopelessly addicted to the color blue. I joke that even my husband's eyes are blue!
(See full post dedicated to the 12 Step Program for Color Addicts - QMQ style!)
2. Favorite Fabrics.
I love hand quilting and the effect it gives a quilt. To help the "beads" shine, I choose to keep the hand-quilting simple and outline each of the beads in a simple straight stitch. The pieced border also has a bit of hand-quilting along the edge.
4. Giving Away Quilts
I love giving away my quilts and this was no exception. I was thrilled to hear my best friend was expecting and so a beautiful baby girl named Grace is the happy recipient of this quilt.
Pattern: Squares and hour-glass blocks created this beaded design. The piano key / squares border was a late addition after seeing: Pixels to Patchwork's project here. She did a fabulous job!
Machined pieced and hand quilted by yours truly. Binding was hand sewn using the backing folded over and hand-sewn. Finished quilt measures roughly 38" x 46".
