A few posts back i showed you a little snippet of this quilt. Well, I'm finished!!!..
and it was an absolute dream to make...Firstly, i think because i LOVE the new Sherbet Pips range from Annela Hoey. Although it isn't due to hit stores til April... there have been a few pre cuts floating around. But, I cant wait till more yardage is available... The little pictures are so so cute. Its perfect for a either a girl or boy.
I only had a little charm pack to work with, and most of the other fabric came from my stashprevious quilt. It was a really easy quilt to make. Perfect for a beginner.
The quilt was 49" across.. so unfortunately it was just that little bit too wide for one 44" strip. Which also meant this quilt needed a pieced back... I really like how it turned out! The backing fabric is a gorgeous new range from Melanie Hurlston "Where the wind blows".
I straight line quilted it across the strips ... and hand quilted it using soft pink Pearle Cotton 8 around the white squares.
Kate has a great Hand Quilting Tutorial on her blog . I hold my needle to hand quilt slightly different, i might show you one day... but Kate's tutorial is a perfect step by step guide from start to finish.
This quilt was made for my girlfriend Hayley, for her new baby girl....
....i hope she like it!! xx
