Here’s a baby quilt that I recently finished for Barb’s daughter and granddaughter. It will hang on the wall, so I could have some fun and quilt it very pretty instead of merely functional. It will also be in a local show next month, so I wanted to quilt it special for her.
Here is the block design:
The work shown above is freehanded, no computer here, so it is not perfect. I am ok with that, I strive for texture and pattern when I quilt. Any imperfections give it character, right? LOL
I did use a stencil on the border, a favorite one by Barbara Chainey. I added some freehand work around it to create more interest and to match the density of the quilting so it would hang nicely. Barbara is a wonderful quilter, teacher, and designer; I am a fan of her stencil designs!
Anyway, I met with Barb today and she was so sweet to bring me a bag of fresh lemons and an orange from her trees. She also gave me a plant, I will do my best to water the plant and not kill it. LOL
Been busy quilting and piecing, too. Plus my online class starts tomorrow, however, I prepared ahead of time, so I am all set!
Next up on my table is a quilt for me- a class sample with selvages for my selvage quilt class. What are you up to this week?
