To be perfectly honest, I don’t even know who I am anymore?? It seems that since I’ve taken the pressure off myself to produce work for the masses, inspiration has returned along with my sewjo! So much so, I have another finish to show you…
Last week, friends of ours announced the arrival of their first child – a baby boy, Blake. I still get excited about the births of babies, and after the new Mummy – Sarah – had commented that she loved my last baby quilt, I decided to grab out the leftovers of those prints and made a SUPER quick quilt.
Keeping in line with my recent addiction to cross quilts, I made eight cross blocks (at 6 inches each) and then popped them in to a great little formation. And then surrounded it with the same charcoal shot cotton (from Spotty) and Voila! One very happy little quilt top!
I kept the quilting super simple too, but also added in some free motion quilting of little Blake’s name! Aurifil thread for the win again 😉
I’ve had this Sarah Jane print patiently waiting for the perfect project, and it looks fabulous backing this quilt.
It ended up measuring around 40″ x 45″ (I can’t remember exactly as I wrapped it straight up and posted it!) and is literally the perfect little person’s quilt to see him through his early childhood.
So, there you have it! Happy quilting!
