You see one of my colleagues wives was expecting a baby and this seemed like a mighty fine opportunity for me to make a baby quilt. I wanted to wait until I knew whether it was a boy or girl before I actually made the quilt. Well the baby arrived yesterday and is a little girl. So it seemed a great idea to use some of the charms to make a baby quilt. I figured if I used this pattern by Elizabeth Hartman, I could utilise some of the wonky charms by trimming them down to a more level 2.5" x 5". So a spot of cutting on the living room floor while I watched a double bill of Only Fools and Horses and I'd got enough. After dinner I whipped up the quilt using some Klona Medium Grey (I think.)
Sorry about the bad picture - light not great and not helped by the bulb that's
gone and I can't replace until it's day light and I can see what I'm doing.
I think the Kona Bubble Gum Pink adds a nice pop of colour. I have still not ordered my new sewing machine so I have two options. I can either wait until I get my new machine to quilt it (I'm hoping the end of this week I can place the order) or I can use the Brother for some Free Motion Quilting. I'm thinking large stipple...Mmm do I have enough thread? What I can't risk is using my old Janome to do straight lines. It's already proven itself incapable of quilting - with or without the aid of a walking foot. Either way I think a bad project has definitely turned good and another unfinished has been rescued from the depths of the Unfinished Pile!
