Ok guys, I’m excited. I’ve got several finishes to share with you. We’ll do them one at a time to make me feel more accomplished 🙂
My first baby quilt of the year is for my friend Carolyn. She worked with me in Boston, and I miss her dearly. She’s also Mila’s godmother. She (not so) recently had a baby girl. I’m hoping we’ll be able to get back to Boston in the soon so I can meet her little girl in person!
I made a simple 4 inch square quilt… always a favorite of mine. I bought a fat quarter pack and then added a few other prints from my stash. I put a pink and white polka dot flannel on the back. So snuggly.
I have been wanting to do zigzag binding, but hadn’t done it because I really enjoy hand stitching. However, this quilt was the perfect opportunity to try it out since I was so behind- and I’m a total converter. I LOVE how it looks.
I also got new labels from etsy. I put the label on the front corner (but I don’t love it there so you’ll see I put it on the back of my next quilt). I also think it should be a little bigger- thoughts?
