As in, my weekend was void of all crafting.
No sewing, no quilting, no knitting, no baking.
I think I'm suffering from withdrawal.
I can however show you some pics I took last weekend of a baby quilt I recently finished.
Look at this cute collection of fabrics:
They mostly belong to the Zoo Babies Collection by Windham, but the orange dot (my personal favourite, and not in the picture.... oops!) is from the All star collection by Riley Blake Designs, and the bright green is something random I found at Hawthorne Threads.
The recipient of this quilt will be my very first (yet-to-be-born) nephew. I chose a simple disappearing 9 patch design for the top, mainly because I want to showcase the prints with the letters and the animals to their full potential. It still turned out that most of the elephants got chopped in half. Doh!
I pieced the back, more out of necessity than choice, but I love how cute it came out. It just gives a nice bit of interest to an otherwise plain backing. And I stippled it again, I'm getting quite comfortable with free-motion stippling now. I still need to watch my speed around the curves a bit, and my stitches are never even, but I enjoy it and I love the antique heirloom crinkly goodness.
I also made a little teeny-tiny car seat/moses basket quilt just because....
Lions and elephant and giraffes, oh my!
