A few weeks ago, I shared a picture of a "Safari Life" charm pack by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda, some yardage from the same collection, and some pale grey Grunge spot also by Moda, that I'd purchased on a recent trip to Sew and So's at Bungay. It was for a secret sewing project, and now that it's been received I can reveal what it was! ...
...I used my favourite baby quilt pattern, Charm Squares Baby Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman. Iit's a free PDF download from her website, and it's super easy to piece together. This grunge spot was used for the sashing and borders. As usual, I quilted this very simply in straight rows, using the edge of my walking foot as a guide.. A pale grey variegated King Tut thread was used for the machine quilting, which blended really well. A smart stripe from the same fabric collection was used for the binding (I really do love a stripey binding). One of my labels was machine stitched in place across the corner on the back of the quilt (as you can see in the picture above). You'll have to excuse the fold lines in the photograph - it was folded neatly on my sewing table while I was waiting for decent weather for a photoshoot!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
