Little bits of lovely
During the August PNW MQG Meet-up here in Seattle, the entire group (Portland, Vancouver BC, Seattle) spent a Saturday cutting, sewing, pressing and sewing some more and ended up with several baby quilts for charity.
A couple weeks ago, Katie brought me 3 of these beauties for quilting. The plan is to have them finished in time for this Saturday’s guild meeting/sew-in. The nursery projects have been put aside temporarily so these little blankets are ready for sharing.
The first is one of several cross quilts based on Susan Beal’s Modern Log Cabin Quilting. Spirals (which I’m having a love/hate relationship with right now ~ do they have to work with most everything??). I used a fun Aurifil 28 variegated thread in a coordinating teal to white colorway.
The 2nd quilt is a stitch and flip triangle quilt using Katie Pedersen & Jacquie Gering’s method from Quilting Modern. I love the setting on this one ~ so fun and fluttery. I went with a very simple, open feather to keep the quilting balanced but not too dense (these are small quilts).
The 3rd is another stitch and flip, this time with the prints coming together as diamonds. I saw kites, so I thought kite tails were all it needed:
All three have flannel backings and are incredibly sweet, reflecting all the hands (and hearts) that made them.
Next up? Bindings, and then finished photos on Saturday with the guild.
