In the last 6 weeks I have made 2 baby quilts, the #sodafloat and #springsunshine – now both gifted. #springsunshine was made with the same collection of pastel Kona cottons and also a very pale grey that toned beautiful with the sugary hues.
It’s made up of half square triangles, 5 1/4 inch squares bace. I have found starch is by far the best solution to stop any bias movement, it’s the first time I have used with method and loved it. Used 100% cotton quilt batting from Macculloch & Wallis and also quilted with 40 weight cotton thread. I found the backing at Fabrics Galore, although sadly no photograph. The binding was made up of all the left over fabrics, joined in a chain and trimmed to 2.5inches wide. I loved the super scrappy look and it worked really well, again no pics as yet because the little boy arrived and I had to bind, washed and tumbled dry the quilt – gifted the same day!
