I took advantage of the Australia Day Sew In yesterday to finish up the second of the elephant baby quilts. Then I washed them both up for photos.
The batting is Warm and Plush. It really is nice and plush-y, and fine for quilting. One drawback is that it shrinks more than the regular Warm battings. I put minimal quilting in the version of Pink Pinwheels that I made for Etsy, and it shrank two inches in each direction, which wasn’t a problem, since it was a little large anyway. I made an effort to add more quilting to these two (roughly every inch or two inches), and it shrank 1.5 inches in each direction (on a 36″ x 42″ quilt). It is nice and poofy, just be aware.
The binding is the last of a Riley Blake one inch charcoal stripe.
Thank you for all the encouragement. These are really fun fabrics, and the aqua ones have been in my stash for a while, so I was glad to use them. These are in my Etsy shop.
I’m linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
