I thought I'd give you my whole quilt history - just for fun.
Lucy's Zig Zag Quilt, 2011
It all started with a move to the "big girl" bed. So I used some precious Sherbert Pips fabric and a modern zig zag/chevron pattern. I hand-quilted it using perle cotton because I liked the large, chunky stitches. I'm fairly pleased with the outcome. The back is voile from Anna Maria Horner and it's very soft and cuddly. It was my first time applying binding with my sewing machine and it turned out well enough to evade the seam ripper.
My first quilt -made for Charlie, 2003
Vintage Quilt Blocks, 2006
Baby Quilt, 2011
This is the quilt I am most pleased with so far. It has wonky stars in Katie Jump Rope fabric from Denyse Schmidt and one vintage turquoise flower fabric. The rest is an ivory polka dot fabric. I love the sawtooth border and the placement of the stars. I also made scrappy binding and for the first time did machine quilting. It went MUCH faster than quilting by hand!
I'm guessing there will be many more quilts to come. There have been a few other quilts I've made for friends and family that aren't shown here but I've tried to stay away from quilting as long as possible. I hear it's addictive.
After this is posted I'm going to begin quilting the NEXT quilt. Yikes. It IS super addictive.
