I have two finishes to share today!
First up is this precious little Country Lanes baby quilt I started by accident. While preparing for my new series, Top 10 Tips for New Quilters, I needed to practice some quick and easy piecing methods to provide pictures for the posts. And I got carried away! I was hoping for some outdoor photos today, but it is so windy the top just about got carried away, too!
I chose two prints from my stash, a blue floral and a geometric white tone on tone. This little top measures approximately 37" x 52" and went together quickly. I have not decided yet, what you use for a backing. I am leaning toward a light grey print.
During this Wednesday's Let's Bee Social post, I also shared my second finish for the week, my remake of the Fox & Friends quilt. You can see the very first Fox & Friends original finish post here.
Why am I doing a remake?
In preparation for upcoming classes this fall!
I will be offering classes at my LQS! I have chosen to offer this project because this quilt pattern has been my all time best seller. And since my original quilt sold, I had to do a remake to display at the quilt shop.
I chose this darling minky print for the backing. These bright eyed owls are from Timeless Treasures. It is super soft and O-Sew-Cute!
I am still not 100% sure how I am going to quilt this....
- Straight lines along the diagonal seams?
- Organic wavy quilting side to side?
- Or zig-zag quilting top to bottom?
This will be my first time quilting with minky.
Wish me luck!
