Busy summer is nearly over and I am back with a new quilt creation :)
This was a love at first sight! The design for this quilt was featured in the Stitch magazine as a baby blanket. This is because the width of the fabric is 42" and to make it any wider, you would need to add extra piece. That means, the seam might be visible on the top and we would rather not have the seam. Well... after a short period of thinking, I decided to take a risk and make this quilt in a double size. The seam actually looks alright.
The key features though here are my personal innovation - an extra wide binding! - and a cotton wool mix batting that made the quilt extremely soft and light!
Quilted it on my longarm machine using clamshells groovy board.
As planned, I took the quilt to my boat today to keep it there and if my stamina lasts, I will make two cusions to go with it. Someday! :)
Enjoy yourselves and your quilting! :-)) x
