Yikes! This one was a rush. We hosted a shower for my dear friend Christy on Sunday. Guess what I was doing late Saturday night? Yup, you guess it. Quilting and binding this mofo.
And actually, I love this little quilt. It’s about 35″ square and I mostly used my stash of blues and grays to finish it. I did buy a few fat quarters of Art Gallery’s Chromatics in Triangularity but everything else came from my plastic bins of goodness.
I was aiming for a wonky log cabin of sorts, but then I ended up with these. I threw the blocks up on the design wall and then added the larger pieces of solids to make up the quilt top. I saved two blocks for the back and pieced them in with the lighter gray. I quilted straight lines going one direction for most of the quilt, then turned it 90 degrees and went the other way. It is bound with some leftover Cotton and Steel basic from my Weekender Bag and a teal solid. I finally used Susie’s Magic Binding that Marti keeps talking about. It really is magic. I can see why Marti keeps encouraging us FRMQG-ers to use it! Thanks, Friend!
The photos I have of the quilt aren’t that great. Since I finished it so late on Saturday night, I wasn’t able/engergized enough to take proper photos. And since we were working so hard to prep for the shower on Sunday morning, I forgot to grab more photos.
These are the ones I have. The quilt really turned out great. And Christ was so excited. She said, “Oh! I get a Norine quilt!” which was sweet. I’m excited for that kid to get here!
