Got baby's quilt cut and laid out today! Got the triangles sewn, just have to sew them together and add the background and then piece the borders. So excited to see this done! Probably should be actually preparing baby clothes and you know, getting the house ready for baby....but hey. 😂 #quilting#quiltersofinstagram#quiltingismytherapy#babyquilt#happyplace
This is finish #11 for the year! Pink Chalk Studio used to have a solids club where they sent out two charm packs and coordinating solids each month! I played with so many different quilt designs during those years! I made this top in August 2012 with #summersvillefabric and used the leftover bits as borders. Then it went in a drawer! I pulled it out yesterday to finish for my new niece Lucy! I quilted random straight across the quilt, which was a fun exercise! Six years, two months, and about two hours to have a finish! 😜 #babyquilt
This is a first, my quilty friends! I’ve been meaning to try big stitch quilting on my binding and since this baby #irishvortexquilt is entirely hand quilted, I figured “why, stop there?” 😀
Plus, it gives me an excuse to show you the pretty @artgalleryfabrics abstract print I chose for the backing (which I’ve been itching to bust out from my #fabricstash 💖). Do you have prints like that sitting your stash too?
We’re now T minus 2 days until the Irish Vortex quilt pattern releases this Thursday October 18! 🎆🎆
PS Fear not, I’m taking pictures of the binding process so I can share a tutorial with you soon 😉
Another baby blanket order finished! Love these orders rolling in! And enjoy using different colors and themes! Thank you @deidrarose56 for another order! As always, every blanket is handmade, with love! #babyblanket#babyquilt#pink#owls#babygirl#blessings
