Here’s the finished baby quilt from the Bramble fabric. It’s a good thing its finished, because the first one sold yesterday!
Careful observers will note the glenn plaid border that was supposed to go on the other one. It almost didn’t make it onto here, either, but I added a cream flange that separated it enough to make it work.
I like the checkerboard embroidery I used on the quad blocks (partially to hide the dotted line printed there). Next time I will embroider the blocks before they are assembled into the top. Live and learn!
I found this animal panel (“Bramble” by Moda) and the glen plaid for the backing. The animals have great patterns, and I thought it would be fun to add more small cream and black prints around them. It was, but pretty soon my eyes were throbbing from all that pattern.
The borders were supposed to be glen plaid, but I switched them out for a slightly calmer fabric.
I used a black Grunge for the binding. We were looking at stripes on Twitter, but I just couldn’t do any more pattern!
I do like it now that I don’t have to look at it so closely. 36″ x 42″ Find this sharp little quilt in my Etsy shop soon.
Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted! I had a couple aches and pains that kept me away from the sewing machine for a while. Then DS and DiL were here for two weeks before Thanksgiving (yay!). So I finally got back to it this week and wrapped up this fun Christmas project.
The non-traditional fabrics were a departure for me, and I really enjoyed them. I like how fresh and crinkly this turned out.
I hope you’re finding time to sew or be with family.
