At least we have sunshine, so it kind of feels like we'll reach the end of the rainbow eventually. I decided to help a little bit with my latest finish.
I think this might be my favorite quilt I made so far. Seriously, I'm in love with this one. And that's why I will give it away. One of my best friends just had her third baby, a little girl after two boys. She lives in Australia and I have no idea when I'll see her again (in person, not just on Skype), so I'll send her a little love with this quilt.
|The middle block is my favorite of them all|
It's quite big for a baby quilt, a bit larger than crib size, about 50 by 70 inches. The back was a lucky find. I have this factory close by that makes dress shirts, and they also sell fabric. By the pound, so you get really nice shirting fabric for not a lot of money. I went there in the hope to find something yellow, and got away with the perfect fabric. And when I put it on the floor for see how big it was, it fit the quilt top perfectly. I did not have to add or cut off a lot.
Quilting wise, I wanted to do something that mirrors the blocks.
And the binding is some Art Gallery fabric that I picked up in my LQS. I wanted to use yellow and white stripes, but they did not have anything, but I guess that's a good alternative.
Wow, that was a long a picture heavy post! If you are still with me: May your weekend be full of sunshine and rainbows!
