|Lollipop Baby Quilt|
This quilt was a challenge, because while I wanted to keep the concept of the original design, I wanted to make it into a baby quilt instead of a wall hanging. This kit was plenty generous with fabric so I only needed to add a new backing fabric. The next challenge was the colors. I don't usually work with fabrics like these, I'm more of a bi-color quilt girl, or even a single color, I like order to my quilts and I tend actually have to work harder to force a scrappy look, vs. if I had just gone with the yardage my fingers couldn't resist.
This quilt was one I made while working on the Freemotion Quilt-a-long, so I had both that quilt and this one going at the same time. What a rush having my sewing machine tuned just right! When I feel the fear of how in the world will I quilt this coming on I can just look at my quilting and say, hey there's an option here somewhere. Do you have an inspiring quilt like that? Well I'd love to hear about it, so drop me a comment. I know you're busy hopping the Festival so I'll let you get back to it.
|I love when the binding gives just the right touch!|
As always happy Quilting!
