This is my latest project, for a very special baby. I started this a few weeks ago, for a very special baby. The charm pack, backing and binding fabrics are from The Boathouse collection by Sweetwater for Moda, and the sashing and border fabric is from the Daysail collection by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. Let the stitching begin! Rows are pieced together, sashing and borders have been added, and it's time for a quick photo shoot before I layer this ready for quilting. This was made with a charm pack "The Boathouse" by Sweetwater for Moda. The fabric for the sashing and borders is from the "Daysail" collection by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. This quilt pattern is Charm Squares Baby Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman...
...this was quilted very simply in straight rows 0.5" apart, using the walking foot as a guide. I used a Schmetz topstitch needle size 70 with a cream King Tut quilting thread shade 971. Another couple of fabrics from The Boathouse collection were used for the binding and backing. I added one of my labels to the back of the quilt, machining through all the layers to secure it into place.
...and here's the finished quilt. I just need to get this wrapped up and sent off in the post, as the baby was born a few weeks ago. I don't want his mummies thinking I've forgotten about him!
