This week I finished up this baby quilt. The top went together very quickly, of course. I spent much more time arranging the blocks (originally I thought all the blocks would have the color spikes, but that gave me secondary patterns.) than when I finally sewed them. Then all the straight line quilting was tedious and time-consuming, but very worth it. It gives it a great crinkly texture and saves it from being so plain.
The object was to use this very bright print. It looks like a hand dye, and like it’s crinkled, but it’s just a print. A print that went with nothing. I put it with two gray and white dotted fabrics. I don’t have the selvage, but I think they were “Mix and Match Dots”, or something like that.
I used the rest of the bright on the back. Using the Fairy Frost and nearly the last of my Mirrored Dot is probably what started me into the new HST zigzag quilt.
Hope you had a satisfying finish this week.
