You may recall from a previous post I mentioned that I received a couple of orders for some customised baby quilts?
Above are the fabrics the girls chose for the first order.
The pale pink (or without the cute giraffes is a Robert Kaufman print. I was a bit concerned when I received the giraffe fabric, because it is a medium weight. I didn't realise this when I purchased it but my customers are aware of it and are happy to proceed. Panic averted!
Sorry the photos are a bit dark but I took them in the evening so...
Tonight, I added a border using the Robert Kaufman fabric.
I am using cotton wadding, which I prefer, but it soooo expensive here.
I will quilt the three layers together probably with a zig zag stitch. However, I want to quilt around each giraffe too!!
Finally I will bind it with a some pink fabric I have left over from another project, it is a strong vibrant pink which will contrast nicely. The finished size will be approx 32" x 32"
I will post photos when this quilt is completed.
In the meantime here are two photos of another quilt I started last week. I couldn't decide which one to go with but in the end I used white squares as a contrasting colour. I am going to have to be brave one of these days and do a quilt with NO WHITE!!!
Please tell me you prefer the white option, 'cause I have about 5 rows already sewn! Oh dear! I felt the "colourful" option was too fussy and I couldn't "see" the quilt. I hope I am not wrong in this.
I intend adding borders to this quilt, I want to make it cot bed size. But I want to finish my orders first, so this will have to wait for a little while.
