Here’s a recent finish for another baby born a few months ago now.
The quilt was inspired by the colours in backing material, a gift from Diana.
The squares were made from a variety of single colour prints in my stash, teamed with Robert Kaufman Essex Linen in Coral and Hot Pink. I also used some Kona Orange and plenty of White.
The centre squares are 4.5″ (finished 4″) and the borders around them are 2.5″ thick (finishing at 2″).
I quilted with three different colours of thread using the seams as guide lines. I was going to go random but ended up maintaining the same colour for each seam-set (ie inner square, inner border strips, outer border strips).
At first I thought I’d made a big mistake and should of gone with white thread, but the mister convinced me to stick with the colours. I think he’s right.
It’s a bit hard to differential between the colours above so here they are:
And the binding is Henna Garden in Brown.
Appliqué again, this time just the first letter of the little girl’s name:
Final measurements: 40″ square.
