Just in the nick of time I have completed the baby quilt I wanted to enter into the fabulous Bloggers Quilt Festival!
The greens are a total mixture from my stash: Tula Pink; Art Gallery; Kona solids; Pearl Bracelets; Sketch; Basic Grey; Architextures; Backyard Baby and many others. The cream I've used for the paws, the backing and the binding is Kona Bone.
I pieced the squares (all 4" finished), then basted and quilted the cross hatch using my walking foot and a hera marker (the first time I've used one and I love it).
I then prepared the paws - I used a new tool called Appliquick which is a pair of metal rods which enable you to neatly turn over the edges onto an interfacing using fabric glue. I then appliqued them onto the quilt sandwich using a straight stitch on my machine. This meant that the paw prints show through to the back as quilting. I almost love the back more than the front!
I've used a DMC perle thread to embroidery my blog name on the back.
The finished quilt is 24" x 36". All of the fabrics are cotton, the batting is cotton bamboo blend and the thread is Aurifil.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a closer look at my entry in the festival. You can find my other entry (in the wall hanging category) here.
And this was a finish on my finish-along list for the fourth quarter, so come January I'll be linking up with Leanne!
