Over January I made four cot quilts for new babies, one already born and a couple due. I used a fat quarter pack that I purchased from a destash sale. That is the first time I had ever been to a destash and first time I had ever brought a fat quarter pack!
The fabric went a long way but there were a few lovely scraps too cute to not use. I randomly pieced them together to make this neonatal quilt. It has been sitting in a pile forgotten for months and I found it when I was on a quilting roll. Which is one reason why I have free motion quilted it! Well that and the fact it is so small (24" square) and I pieced the wadding, so I was brave and decided to densely quilt it. I am pleased with the results, but practise makes perfect and its a long way off.
This quilt has just been straight and ditch stitched but I am now certain that it needs a bit more to anchor it down. However the binding is on and I lost my quilting confidence when the walking foot died. It wasnt so much that the foot died, as that it took me awhile to work out what was wrong and I unpicked way too much micro stitches in that time! So while I am not going to tempt fate with more unpicking I do think this quilt will get some fancy free motion quilting....but I have to wait for some appropropriate quilting inspiration first.
Happy quilting Sue.
