Finished Baby Quilt

Such a flurry of quilting has not been seen in these parts for a while!  I couldn't get the lighting to behave so it's a little dingy/dark looking.  Oh well!





I did an all over stipple in dark brown thread.  This quilt has since been washed and gotten nicely crinkled up so if I take any more pics I will share.  Love that Owl backing!!

WIP Wednesday

I posted a bit about this one yesterday, but now I have the top done, sandwiched, and I have started to quilt it.  It's a gift for a friend of mine who just had a baby boy.  I'm doing an all over, large scale,  stipple in dark brown thread.  I folded over the bottom so that you could see the adorable backing fabric.


The fabric line is "Life's a Hoot" from Adorn It.  I got it from my LQS, and then added in the orange and teal solids.  The solids come from Connecting Threads.  The pattern for the quilt comes from See Kate Sew.  I must not have counted right and ended up being a row short, but it worked out better for me that way.  And it'll still be ok :-)

Something in the works

Slow but sure, I'm doing something. I'll likely play with alignment as I've got samesies together. This is to be a gift for a friend who has just given birth.
