Remember the very first quilt top I ever made? 6 years ago? Well I finally got around to binding it. I used muslin on the back mostly for thrift, but I have to say it is one of my warmest quilts. That is especially needed considering all of the snow we have had this crazy winter.
I made this beauty over the course of the last 2 years. I love love the bright colors and the contrast/negative space of the white. I saved a block for me to make a pillow because I loved it so much. It was finally finished and quilted for a dear friend who had her first baby girl a few months ago.
I chose super warm batting and backing because they also live in a cold area.
This was another of my super quick quilts for a friend's baby. I loved the fabric! I love giving homemade gifts, I wish I had enough time to make them more often. I make these easy strip quilts often, and love using ric rac to give it a little bit of spunk. This was also my first project where I used free motion quilting and a walking foot. I still have a lot of practice to do, but it was a neat way to quilt on a normal machine.
