although this could be a post on procrastination...I'll make it a post of progression...
this quilt was a lot of fun for me. I think I have officially found my 'comfort zone' in the quilting world. You can have your precision and patterns, I will take flying by the seat of my pants...without further ado...
I give you my process in pictures...
The start of the idea...inspired by quilts like THIS and THIS
And because I wasn't slap happy and sleep deprived enough, I forged ahead with one of the 4 baby bibs I had intended to make. This is a 'matching' bib and it is resting on the back of the finished quilt.
I made this quilt in 8 days. Not sure I have start to finish made a quilt in that short of time before. Not a quilt like this one anyway...I am happy to report the soon to be mom loved it. She thanked me many times and expressed a love for the fabrics I used and the non traditional design of the quilt. Such a great feeling to have a hand made gift so well received.
The quilt finished at 42x48 inches.
I did vertical quilting about 1.25 inches apart with a few horizontal lines thrown in willy nilly.
The backing fabric is an adorable Sevenberry fabric that is so wonderfully soft.
ETA: I forgot to mention that this will be my submission for June's Stash Project
