This is my most recent quilt. Measures approximately 36x45. And is boxed up waiting a trip to Indianapolis for my college roommates soon to be born son.
I learned a lot of things doing this quilt. Firstly, I need a lot of work on 'fussy' cutting if that is indeed what I was doing with the center blocks. My head must have been in the clouds when cutting because I don't feel like I feature any animal very well in the center. bad technique, wrong fabric/size square...maybe all of the above...lesson learned...hopefully!
I also learned about working with no pattern. I just assembled blocks as I saw fit and used white fabric to square up the blocks...then I add the sashing. Still not sure it is ideal, but it is OK.
It was quilted by my local quilt shop. They just got a longarm and agreed to quilt this and my sister's baby quilt (previous post) for $15. I thought since time was tight it was a good idea!
