I've been working on my 2013 pledge to finish some old projects. This first quilt qualifies since I started it last May.
It is a quilt as you go project trying various free motion and walking foot techniques from Amanda's workshop. Practicing quilting on smaller areas was very helpful in learning techniques and testing ideas.
The back is linen and adds a nice cozy weight to it.
I'm so used to making complicated Farmer's Wife blocks or intricate hexie projects that it was tough to motivate myself to put together these simple squares, but I'm so glad it is done.
This is not an old project but it is a very satisfying finish. I love mixing vintage sheets and modern fabrics. I especially like how the pastels and vintage florals really shine against the grass green.
I (ever so) briefly considered having another baby just so I could use this quilt. Instead I'll just have to be patient until one of my friends has a baby.
The back is another favorite vintage sheet. It will be super soft against baby's skin. The quilting is all walking foot zigzag parallel lines. They look a little crooked after washing the quilt, but I still love the crinkly goodness of a freshly washed quilt.
Here are both quilts on the hill in my backyard for their photography session.
I'm off to enjoy some sunshine with my little guy. I hope you are well and happy.
