It is a tiny little quilt, about 32" x 37", so was fast and easy and a delight to sew! I saw the pattern in the book, Fat Quarter Baby of It's Sew Emma patterns. The name of the pattern is "Andrew" and I purchased it from Mrs. Pugsley's Quilt Emporium from Amherst, the vendor that was at the Thistle Guild Quilt Show a few weeks ago.
It's Sew Emma has a sweet little You Tube video HERE so you can see some of the wonderful patterns in the Fat Quarter Baby book. Each whale and set of bubbles can be made with a fat quarter, so I picked up some cute "bubble" fabrics by Hoffman when I was at The Fabric Cupboard in Moncton recently.
I found a stitch on my Pfaff Expression 3.5 (stitch 108) that resembled a wave so I played around with the width and length and did some "wave" quilting about 1.5" apart.
My DD tells me she thinks all baby quilts should have flannel on the back, so I followed her suggestion and used a blue pin dot flannel on the back.
I have to say I think this is one of the cutest baby quilts I have ever made! Thank you It's Sew Emma for such a great design!
I also finished a Star Bright quilt this week, using pinks and greys this time to make it suitable for a girl baby. This is a free pattern by SwimBikeQuilt that works up so quickly. I know, because this is the third time I've made this pattern!
My quilting lines were done with a serpentine stitch, keeping the 40" x 45" quilt nice and cuddly!
And again, following DD's advice, I used a pink pin dot flannel for the back!
Once these quilts were done, I pulled out my Bar Quilt that I blogged about HERE.
I made the sandwich, pinned everything, and am now in the midst of quilting it.
It's a great day for quilting!
