Procrastination

4.04.2011

Some things never change….another baby quilt with not the best pics because I finished it minutes before a friend’s baby shower. 

As in pacing in front of dryer worried that we were going to be late after setting a new personal best time for hand sewing the binding.

I have not learned and maybe never will.  But on the bright side I now have baby accessories to drape the quilt on.  Maybe that will help the incredibly quickly taken pictures.

I used the New Wave quilt pattern that I found on Oh Fransson.  Since they are not finding out the gender, I picked the yellow, orange and green color palette.  Did I mention that I love how it came out?

And the back….which only looks transparent because of the whole standing in front of a window thing.

This is the first time I attempted free motion quilting on my new machine and I am happy with how it came out even without my standby free motion partner of red wine.

To make the patterned fabric stand out even more, I just did random loops in the white border areas.

I also loved how it made the pattern come through to the back.

Hopefully the new baby will love it and maybe next time I will learn my lesson. 

I wouldn’t hold my breathe though.

  6. I LOVE IT!

    And the fact that you hand-bind anything makes you a hero in my book. It's on my list to learn someday. Like when I'm retired. ;)

    Love the fabric choices and the pattern. Going to check it out.
