Catching up

Hello, hello! Remember me? I seem to be perfecting my disappearing act these days, but I'm back again with a little update on that baby quilt I mentioned in my last post (all those months ago). I'm really thrilled with the way it came out! In fact, of all the quilts I've made, this one may just be my favourite. I just love how bright and scrappy the blocks are!


I quilted simple diagonal lines - my fallback quilting style - and finished with a colourful scrappy binding, which seemed the natural choice for a quilt like this. For the back, I used the completely scrumptious Pink Bake Cherry by Riley Blake. Swoon. I didn't get a photo of it before giving the quilt away, but I did manage gleefully to deposit in my stash a few small leftover pieces for future projects. 


I'm hoping the beautiful baby girl this was given to will enjoy exploring each and every one of the blocks. There are a few different textures here, with one or two linen and silk scraps thrown in, and several fussy cut centre squares featuring cute little cats, horses, and other furry friends. Mum and Dad certainly had fun going through each square and pointing out the different patterns, shapes, and colours (which, naturally, thrilled me no end)!

A not quite successful attempt at a close-up.

I'm linking this up with Scraptastic Tuesday and promise to return (sooner or later) with a few other projects from the last little while. In the meantime, happy weekend!
