|Here was the quilt on Sunday morning after quilting and ready for binding.|
|Here are the fabrics I pulled out of my stash on Thursday.|
|I got my baby down for a nap and sewed the quilt top in about an hour and a half.|
1. I cut my half yard of Peter Rabbit fabric into 8 nine inch squares.
2. I chose 32 charms out of the charm pack and arranged them into four patches on my table. I tried to be consistent with where I placed each print in the four patches.
3. I chain pieced the four patches, pressing seams at each stage of making the blocks and trimmed the blocks down to 9 inches square (keeping seams centered).
4. I pieced four rows alternating four patches with Peter Rabbit fabric and pressed my seams.
5. I sewed the rows together into the quilt top.
6. I sewed the border print to the sides and top of the quilt. This quilt ended up 47 inches square.
7. I pieced a backing from various quilt shop quality pieces of flannel.
8. I quilted in a crosshatch pattern using the four patch corners as a guide.
9. I bound the quilt with five 2 1/2 inch strips of yellow polka dotted Moda fabric from my stash.
|I bound the quilt on Sunday evening and put it in the wash to get the spray basting and sizing out of it before giving it to my baby to sleep with.|
|Here is my baby girl yesterday afternoon (Monday) at nap time sleeping under her new quilt. Is there anything sweeter for a quilting Mother to see? <3|
