Thanks to my awesome husband, combined with the fact that I’ve been pumping and he was able to feed the baby, I was able to finish up the baby quilt for Kit last night! It’s definitely not perfect, especially the machine binding, but I’m glad it’s done and I’m sure this is the first of many quilts that will be made for Kit.
Finished size 42” x 47”
Oh Fransson’s New Wave Quilt Pattern – pieces cut using the Fat Cats Dresden ruler
Tumbler pieces: various yellow & gray fabrics I’ve been collecting for approximately 2 years now (Heather Ross prints are probably the most prominent)
Sashing fabric: Annette Tatum Bohemian “Tic Tac Stripe” in Teal
Backing fabric: AMH Innocent Crush voile “Maybe” in Sixpence
Batting: Quilters Dream request loft cotton
Binding: American Jane print, can’t remember the collection off hand, it’s older and I bought on sale when a local fabric store closed down around 2 years ago
The combo of the batting + voile backing means this quilt is very lightweight. I also kept the quilting minimal, quilting circles around the narrow part of the waves (click the photo above to go to Flickr for a bigger photo).
