Bring on the finishes in 2017!

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?

  1. Very cute and little-girl appropriate. I also really like the zig-zag binding, especially for something that will be washed frequently. I definitely think a bigger label (maybe with room for a date and some other personal info) would be nice but it’s cute and labeled is better than not-labeled!

  2. Very cute quilt. You c Use print a label on your inkjet printer and sew it to the back. Much more customizable. And, you can even print pictures and more on it.

    I hope that when you do come to Boston that you can make time to stop by my shop, which is now in the Fabric Corner building.
