square patchwork baby quilt
I started making this quilt for our friend’s newborn baby girl… and then I got sidetracked with other projects (this seems to happen to me a lot – I get halfway through something and then give up and start another project…). But! I finally finished & I’m pretty psyched with the final product. (I used Nicey Jane fabrics by Heather Bailey for the front & Kona cotton for the back).
I went with a sort of random patchwork design & then quilted on either side of each seam to make a box pattern. (I’m really proud of the quilting on this one – I think my sewing-in-a-straight-line skillz are definitely improving! And actually, I feel a little bit sad for those people who were the recipients of my first few quilts, because this one is definitely better than all of them…)
The quilting looks super-cool from the back, too. (I think the only reason you can see through the back here is because I’m shooting towards the sun, because the blue backing doesn’t look this see-through when it’s laid out on the couch…)
Next up I will attempt to make a zigzag quilt for Rico. Fingers crossed that a) I have the skillz to pull it off, and b) I have the attention span to finish it before he gets here…
