Well, I finished up this tiny, little thing for my sister's cute baby (who has a hairy bum. Is that normal?? I've never seen a baby with a furry patch on their buns). Anyway, I haven't made a quilt this small in a long time. I must admit, it was nice. Well, I guess my last one was about 10" bigger, actually.
blatant copying inspiration came from Tessa Marie over at The Sewing Chick, which is a blog I've been following for a while. Get ready for picture overload.
I rather enjoyed the piecing and the attempting to get my points lined up (which is something that I usually don't care about). Amazingly, most did! I decided not to attribute that to the fact that I pressed open every dang seam. Usually I just iron my seams in one direction, but for some reason I thought it'd be a good idea to
torture myself do so this time around. So I'm just gonna pretend that open seams had nothing to do with most of my points lining up, since it was such a pain in the kiester. And it felt like it was bulkier, but maybe that was just my imagination....
The little thing measures 36x36
So is it bad that I don't really want to give this to my sister?? I may just have to make another one...for her.
After washing. I sure love all the wrinkly, quilty-ness. It's my most favorite part!
By the way, I'm thinking of repainting this picnic table in ombre colors. Opinions?
