Last October I joined in the Blogger's Quilt Festival even though I'd only been quilting for 2 months. It feels like I've come a long way and am thoroughly enjoying all this learning, creating and sewing!
I made this baby quilt because I love this Pezzy print fabric by American Jane for Moda. I happened to have a charm pack of it and I saw this great tutorial pop up in the Moda Bake Shop.
The top was really straightforward to piece together and it was fun having all those coloured prints and Bella Solids to work with.
I chose to do straight line quilting, some randomly 1/4" apart. It keeps it modern and doesn't detract too much from the prints.
I was fortunate that my mum gave me this old curtain from the house I grew up in. It's a nice light cotton and just looking at it makes me smile.
There was no intended recipient of this quilt and I've thought about donating it or gifting it to a friend but since I love it so much and the backing is sentimental, instead I'm saving it for if we have a third baby!
I'm linking up to the fun that is:
I'm going to try and check out as many of the quilts as I can and if you've come from there please stay and look around. Comment if you have time, I enjoy making new bloggy friends!
