The last time I posted about Baby Girl Quilt was November 1st. Oh my. We had just a wee bit going on in between then and now.
When we left off on Episode Three (find Episode Two and One here) I had just finished piecing the quilt top and made my quilt sandwich, getting ready for the machine quilting.
I sporadically worked on the machine quilting, as it takes up a good chunk of time. I stipple stitched the inside white border and lined the triangles that make up the pinwheels:
Stitching the layers together gives it that nice puffyness, see?:
Next up the binding, which is always a chore. I hand stitch the back of my double thickness binding which creates a finished look that will stand up through multiple washes.
I pulled the last stitch through right about when Jack Bauer was kicking in the door to Marika's apartment on 24. Good times.
And now, I present the final finished project:
I am thrilled to have finished it when Lil Chick is 2 months old, compared to Bubbalu's quilt, which I finished one week before his 1 year birthday party.
I actually used the exact same pattern for both quilts just girlified it this time around.
Now I just have to figure out what my next sewing project will be...have any fun ideas?
